Don't miss our "Mad About Plaid Workshop"
You'll go mad for your plaid! Learn how fun and easy fusing glass can be. The basics of using glass tools to cut different types of glass, arranging it to create a pattern that will be fired in a kiln will be covered. You will make a 6" by 6" piece of glass with pattern, color, and dimension. Your plaid glass will then be slumped to create a functional vessel or a piece that can be displayed in a stand or frame. Your creation can be picked up 7 to 10 days after the class. For adults and high school students.
