Pre-Teen Classes

Glass and way? YES WAY!

These classes offer students aged 8-12 a chance to explore the basics of fused glass without the hazards of glass cutting or powdered glass. Using only pre-cut glass, small scraps, frits, and soft, easy-to-bend copper wire, young students will have a chance to get some creative juices flowing. Here is your chance to get your child involved in a craft that is sure to impress.

Students under age 8 can be admitted if accompanied by a parent or guardian.
