In this delightful NEW class, you'll be invited to make a large, solid glass strawberry! The body of the strawberry is placed in an optical mold creating the perfect air pockets that look like seeds. From there clear glass is added and the stem goes on top.
You can adjust the design with your color choices (remember, not all strawberries are red!) and the way that you pull the green stem over the actual berry. Each student will be making one berry and is encouraged to personalize the strawberry with the colors they choose and the way the stem is shaped.
We supply all the tools and supplies you'll need to make this lovely berry so just come and join for the fun of creation! 😃
What to expect when you come: 🔥🔥🔥
This class begins with some paperwork to fill out so we suggest coming 15 minutes early to do this and also cruise the studio and gallery to get a feel for the place.
A short tour is then conducted to show you some of the unique features of glass making, specialty items in the studio, where everything is located (bathrooms) and a bit of background on the company.
From there, you will be introduced to the instructor who will do a safety demonstration, and then begin your class with an explanation of the process before you actually handle the glass. Eye glasses are required for all our classes and if you don't wear them, we provide a clear safety style to use during the class. Close toed shoes are needed, and we suggest cotton clothing to wear.
After crafting the strawberry, each item made goes thru a cooling process called annealing. Once completely cooled, (overnight) the item is ready for pickup in the studio OR we offer free shipping directly to your home.
After the class is finished you'll be able to shop in the gallery using your 20% discount day of class coupon. There are also various contests and incentives to win items around the studio that you'll want to enter so give yourself time to enjoy this.
