Learn more about each activity….
- Glass Fusing
Step 1: Choose a glass base. This is when you decide the size and color of your project’s base sheet of glass. During this step you will also be deciding on what your end project is going to be. For example: 3″ x 3″ or 4″ x 4″ can be a coaster or a night light.
Step 2: Design your pattern. This is where your design starts to come together. We offer over 25 different glass colors. Pick from a large selection of colored glass strips, frit, stringers, dots, tips and tails of crushed glass. Our helpful staff is on hand to show you how to get started with nipping and break glass to create your own fused glass project.
Step 3: Leave it, we will fuse it. We will melt (fuse) your pieces together in our kiln.
Step 4: Put on the finishing touches. We have several options that can be added to your glass to turn it into a functional item. Before it is fired, we can add a hook so it will be permanent. After your piece has been fired, we can add bumps and turn it into a trivet or coaster. We can glue on a nightlight bracket to turn it into a nightlight.
- Canvas Painting
Step 1: Choose your canvas size. Choosing the size of your canvas will help you decide what you’ll be painting.
Step 2: Choose your orientation. Next, you will want to decide if you want your canvas vertical or horizontal. Our canvases start at $25.
Step 3: Choose your design. We have easy to follow instructions available to replicate our previous class paintings. We have broken down our Sip & Paint paintings into easy step-by-step instructions to ensure you know just how we did it. If you’re comfortable enough with your own abilities you may freestyle paint. Our staff is always on hand to help answer questions on how to achieve a specific look.
Step 4: Frame it! Be sure to try on one of the frames to easily finish off your new masterpiece. Framing can be completed in minutes.
