Glass provides a resting place for wine, eveningwear for Cinderellas, and a more dramatic exit from 44th-floor windows for Bruce Willises. Shatter artistic inhibitions with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a glass-fusion pendant-making workshop at Zyndorf Glass & Arts in Sylvania (a $50 value).
Zyndorf Glass & Arts kindles creative mastery in students of all ages and abilities during workshops, classes, programs, and social events centered on the art of silica sculpting and more. During each 2.5-hour session, students delve into methods and techniques, such as cold forming, used in crafting handmade jewelry pieces. Advice from the studio’s resident muses and all necessary materials—including tools, equipment, and wand-wielding fairies—are available to students as they construct their own décolletage adornments. After crafting two personalized pendants and pairing each with a sturdy bail, artists will send their pieces off to be fired in a secured kiln, which melts the glass into a strong and glossy work of art. After pendants cool, amateur artists can return to the studio to pick up their masterpieces and walk, skip, or electric slide through the boutique brimming with clothing items and original artwork. Through December 1, 2011, Groupon customers will receive an additional 20 percent off regularly priced merchandise in the Zyndorf shop.
