Creative talents, like houseplants and celebrities, wilt without proper attention. Channel your aesthetic sensibilities with today’s Groupon: for $67, you get an introductory flameworked-beads class at Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton (a $135 value). Classes will be held 10 a.m.–4 p.m. on October 6, 8, 9, 13, and 27; November 10, 12, 13, 17, 19, 20, and 27; or December 1, 4, 10, 11, 16, 17, and 18.

Housed on 55 sprawling acres of historic land, the Workhouse Arts Center hosts performance and theater venues, studios, event facilities, a gallery and exhibition space, and an ever-expanding community of artists in all-day workshops helmed by expert instructors. In an airy industrial room, students taking the Introduction to Flameworked Beads class wield oxygen-propane torches, forging small colorful beads to display as art or use as currency with naive aliens. Instructors show students how to effectively and safely handle the fire-spouting torch as they manipulate vibrant Moretti glass to create delicate and decorative glass beads covered in elegant designs or miniscule copies of the Constitution. Students should arrive prepared with a notebook and a packed lunch. Students should also wear long pants and non-polyester, natural fiber clothing, such as cotton.

"Bring a fly swatter"

It was a ghastly eyesore- a fenced compound with low brick buildings that had narrow rows of tiny windows running along the tops of the buildings. The row of windows l... Read More
