$39 for a Glass-Fusion Class of Choice ($79 Value)

Available glass-fusing classes include Plates, Coasters, and Fusing Fun. Under the watchful eye of a professional artist, students assemble colorful pieces of glass into three sizes of plates, three 6-inch coasters, or five smaller projects, which can include a sun catcher, jewelry, and magnets. After pupils complete their designs, each piece of glass art is thrust into a kiln for firing, rendering them solid pieces ready for pickup from the shop within a few weeks. Participants are also encouraged to bring their own beverages to enjoy during the class.

The Goddess of Glass

Most students in introductory stained-glass-making classes are in search of a new hobby or a fun few hours, but not Connie Beckers. In 1995, she took such a course and soon built a career around the art of stained glass and kiln-working. Now, through The Goddess of Glass, she teaches others her craft during classes that cover the creation of jewelry, coasters, plates, and transparent overalls. She’s also been known to flex her instructional muscle as a guest artist on the DIY Network show I Hate my Kitchen, on the episode entitled Cramped Quarters, where she taught the show’s host and contractor how to make stained-glass tiles for a kitchen in the middle of remodeling.

The Goddess of Glass also sells artwork and gifts out of a separate retail shop. Patrons can commission a custom piece, such as a stained-glass window, or peruse a collection of pieces by more than 80 local artisans. The shop’s staff can also advise clients who need custom framing, helping them to pick the proper matting and frame so that their Richard Nixon rookie cards really pop.
