Ages 10+. One of our skilled flameworking artists will guide you through the basic steps of using a torch to melt colorful glass rods into small beads, discs, drops, or other shapes. String your creations onto cords as beaded jewelry or use your beads in your own inventive way!

Night Lights
Ages 6+. In the Fused Glass studio, Third Degree artists will guide you through the process of making your own glass night light. Work with cold, colorful glass cutouts to create your own pattern or design on a 3”x3” tile. Our artists will then fuse it in our kilns and turn it into a lighted memento.
