Fused Glass Plant Stakes w/Lauren Richeson 7/8 @ 12p

About this experience

No “artistic/creative” skills are required to make these fun and colorful glass plant stakes. 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 get four 10 inch “blank” clear glass stakes to decorate with a multitude of colored pieces of fusible glass. Each student gets their own selection of glass scraps to use to create small masterpieces. Once complete, the plant stakes will be fired offsite 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. 

Fee includes basic materials and use of tools with an option to purchase dichroic glass during the workshop.

*Ages 16 and over. Closed-toe shoes required. You are welcome to bring a drink and snack if you’d like.
