Driftwood and Glass Wind Chimes w/ Lauren 9/24

About this experience

No “artistic/creative” skills are required to make these fun and colorful glass windchimes. You start with a general introduction into the process of “kiln-firing” glass. We will learn how to use glass nippers to
form small pieces of glass into basic shapes. You then decorate with a multitude of colored pieces of fusible glass. Each student gets their own selection of glass scraps to use to create the individual glass
chimes. Once complete, the pieces are finished off-site and students will be able to pick them up from The Seaside Succulent several days later. This class is designed to be fun and no stress.

For safety reasons, the class is for those 16 and older. 
Closed-toe shoes required.  You are welcome to bring a drink and snack if you’d like.
