Glass Academy classes are starting to reopen on a smaller scale. Classes will be back in November so start planning for the holiday gifts and a treat for yourself! Covid has hit our small business hard due to the lack of class revenue so it is our intention to bring back classes in full capacity as soon as we think it's safe to do so for our staff and our customers.
Thank you for understanding! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the studio.
The Michigan Icicle ™, is our most popular glass class in the Dearborn studio.This is the perfect hands on glassblowing class to try that uses our special recycled glass recipe.
The instructor will demonstrate how to make the Michigan Icicle. Students will each take turns, and one by one, the icicles will be made.Adding some white ‘snow’ to the surface of the liquid molten glass to color the icicle is optional and usually preferred.Using glass hand tools, gravity, and creative insight, this ‘blob’ will be snipped, pulled and stretched to create the basic icicle shape.
To finish the icicle, our talented craftsmen will attach a glass loop at the top of the icicle for hanging, then place it in the annealer, a cooling oven, to cool to room temperature overnight.It will be available for pickup the next day the studio is open or $20 ships your icicle to your home.
This Michigan Icicle ™ is a trademark item, designed by resident artist Chris Nordin exclusively for the Glass Academy.This is an exciting class you won’t want to miss!Sign up today!
