At Hands On, we offer a variety of walk-in project kits so that customers may do a fused glass project at any time, even without an appointment.  If you would like to take a more intensive glass class or learn how to make a project which is not on our "walk-in-project" list, you'll want to take one of our FUSED GLASS Basics Classes.  We offer these classes on the fourth Saturday of the month 10am-1pm.  Discover the basics of working with hot glass. Come learn about the different types of glass, how to score and break glass, volume control, slumping and dichroic glass. Our classes are designed for people who are not artists but just want to have fun.  If you’ve always been curious about how glass pieces are made, this class is for you.  Classes cost $10 plus the price of the project you choose. All tools and materials are provided.
