Make Your Own Stained Glass Brooch!
December 17, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Date: Saturday, December 17, 2022
Description: Curious about stained glass or putting flowers in glass? Get crafty with us on a small scale! Learn different techniques with pressed flowers and transform them into useful objects that preserve natural wonders and your memories. Students will learn how to cut sheet glass and how to foil the edges. Use materials provided and/or bring your own pressed flowers if you desire.
Create your own “cabinet of curiosity” that fits into a glass brooch on your coat, backpack, sweater, or an object for your desk. Makes a great gift of a fun activity to do with friends and family. Everything will be sandwiched between 2 sheets of glass. You will make 2 pins.
Tuition: $55 + $35 materials fee
