In this hands-on class, students work one-on- one with an experienced instructor to create a piece of glass art. Choose between crafting a paperweight, ornament or drinking glass. Customize your piece with colors of your choice, learn the basics, and feel free to ask questions as your instructor assists you with the entire process! All levels welcome.
