Create lovely glass icicles to hang in your window and catch the winter sun. Next year you can place these beautiful pieces on your Christmas tree. During the class, you will learn how to melt and stretch clear and colored glass at a stationary torch under close supervision. You may also be able to make a smaller version of the icicle to wear as a pendant. No experience is necessary - only a willingness to try.
Pick up your project(s) after they have been annealed (heated and cooled gradually to remove thermal stress) or they can be mailed to you for $6 payable to the instructor.
Age: 15 years through adult
If under 18 years old, you must be accompanied by responsible adult
