Creative talents, like houseplants and celebrities, wilt without proper attention. Cultivate your creativity with today’s Groupon: for $89, you get a Stained-Glass Christmas Ornament course at Verite Stained Glass in Avon (a $180 value). This Groupon is good for up to 24 hours worth of three-hour classes, with open class times on Tuesday evenings and Thursday afternoons.
Sheree Ferrato, owner of Verite Stained Glass, bends more than 30 years of glass working experience toward instructing beginner stained glass artists in basic techniques. During three-hour Stained Glass Class sessions, students select provided materials and a pattern before they practice cutting the glass into shapes using a light table. Over the course of 24 total hours of instruction time, pupils complete a six- to seven-piece Christmas ornament to take home, give to a friend, or replace a broken window before the neighbor notices. Eager artists are welcome to create extra pieces for an additional fee.
