BOOK ONE OF OUR MOST POPULAR WORKSHOPS
 
 
Glass Lattice Designer Dish or Free Form Design $65
 
During this workshop, students learn to cut strips of single-colored, multicolored or patterned glass to compose their dish or freeform design. After fusing and cooling in a glass kiln heated to 1450-degrees Fahrenheit, the designs are positioned on selected molds and fired again.
 
Note:  Projects available for pickup one week later.
 
 
Glass Pendant Light or Lamp Shade $65 
 
During the workshop, students learn to cut a glass pendant light shade from their choice of glass, using a glass cutter, and glass grinder with a diamond bit.  After the glass is fired, the student will cut a hole in the glass to fit the light fixture using a drill press. Depending on the glass chosen, the pendant light shade can be sandblasted to create a frosted look.  Hardware for the hanging pendant light is included in the workshop fee. 
 
Note:  Student to provide hardware for housing a table top lamp shade.
 
 
Sculptural Glass Vase or 2 Glass Votives $55
 
During each 2 1/2 hour glass-draping workshop, students use stainless-steel molds to create an original vase. First, they'll study how heat from kiln transforms the glass. Then, they'll create the essential form by cutting a flat sheet of glass, and use cold-working techniques, such as grinding, and sanding to shape interesting edges. Finally, heat from a 1350-degree glass kiln will transform the decorative glass sheet into a one-of-a-kind vase or votive set.
 
Note:  Sculptured glass designs available for pickup in 4 business days.
 
 
Hollie Glass Coasters  $55
 
This unconventional technique for creating glass coasters allows everyone to make coasters that are not only functional, but a conversation piece as well.  In this workshop, you'll create a set of 4 unique coasters using glass colors and patterns of your choosing.  You will cut 32 to 40 glass strips overlaying and securing them to create a set of 4 coasters.

Note:  Rubber bumpers will be provided for each coaster to protect furniture.
 
 
 
 
 Glass or Microwave Kiln Glass Jewelry  $155
 
Learn to Design, Cut and Fire a variety (4 unique pattern styles) of pendants and earrings using dichroic and art glass.  Students have a choice of using a conventional quick fire glass kiln which fires in 35 minutes or a microwave kiln that fires in 9 minutes or less.  Jewelry findings will be provided along with documentation.
