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.

Learn to "Turn Hot Glass into Cool Stuff!"
Ever wonder how those beautiful glass beads are made or where your friend got that stunning glass sun catcher from? Now you can learn to make them yourself right here in Buffalo, NY. Expressive Glass offers classes for every level of student.  Each class has been designed by a training professional who will help you succeed. We limit the class size of our classes to make sure you get plenty of individualized instruction.

We recognize that when it comes to learning, one size does NOT fit all. We tailor the learning to the learner. Each of our classes incorporates every learning style and provides plenty of individual attention. Whether you are left-handed or right-handed, whether you learn best by seeing, doing, or hearing, you will find yourself developing and mastering new skills in glass work.
