Glass is like the days of our fickle, fleeting lives: colorful and pretty to look at, but ultimately made of sand. Avoid letting life's grainy matter slip unexamined through your hourglass with today’s Groupon to The Vinery, a stained glass studio on West Beltline Highway. Choose between the following options:
- $17 for a fused pendant class (a $35 value)
- $22 for a beginning stained glass workshop (a $45 value)
Friendly instruction and full inclusion of tools and materials make classes at The Vinery as accessible as a great-grandma with working cell-phone knowledge. Pendant pedagogy fills hungry brain cells with fused glass basics, including work with iridized and dichroic glass. In the fused pendant course, students make four pendants or magnets, which then incubate for about a week in The Vinery's nurturing kilns before coming home to beautify your anxiously waiting décolletage. For those who'd like to look at the world through multicolored windows, the studio offers step-by-step instruction in the art of pattern preparation, foiling, soldering, and cutting glass in its beginning stained glass workshop. Participants not only take home a complete stained glass panel, but also the knowledge that they finally stained something on purpose.
