Glass SuncatchersIMG_3544
Tuesday, June 10th       11 am – 2 pm
Add some sparkle to your yard with a set of 4 suncatchers made out of kid-friendly fused glass! We’ll start with pre-cut rectangles of clear glass, add some imagination (and a wire for hanging) and the possibilities are endless!

Everything in Clay Day
Wednesday, June 11th 11 am – 2 pm
Sometimes as adults we impose too many limits on young, creative minds. We’ve found that if you give a kid some clay and let them explore it on their own, magical things can happen. Let’s see what your child will make!

Glass Initials SetIMG_3545
Tuesday, June 24th 11 am – 2 pm
We’ll be using our 6-inch bisque letters as a template for this cool set of glass initials. Each child will make 3 letters out of kid-friendly fused glass. We will also add a wire for hanging in their room!

Silver Clay Jewelrylilly_ollo_finished_108
Wednesday, June 25th 11 am – 2 pm
(Ages 10 & up ONLY)
NEW! Unique jewelry made from pure silver clay! Pick out your shapes and stamps to make one large or two medium pendants. We’ll fire and finish them on the same day!

Frozen Plate and Mug Set1795576_473355232770910_649101003_n
Tuesday, July 8th 11 am – 2 pm
Do you wanna build a snowman? Celebrate Summer with a plate and mug set featuring Olaf from the movie Frozen. We’ll be using some of our favorite painting techniques such as paper masking and etching.

My Favorite Things Message Board
Wednesday, July 9th 11 am – 2 pm
Kids will pick out their ten favorite add-ons from our huge selection and add them to a cool plaque that can be used as a dry erase board after firing. We’ll also add a beaded wire for hanging!

Personalized Artist’s Set
Tuesday, July 22nd 11 am – 2 pm
Every artist needs a set of tools to work with! We’ll be making a functional set of artist tools: a painter’s palette, a tumbler for water, and a cup to hold brushes or other utensils.

Make Me a Monster
Wednesday, July 23rd 11 am – 2 pm
What will your little monster look like? We’ll be playing a fun game to determine which fun features will make up each child’s unique monster. Then we’ll paint the kooky creatures on a big platter!
