Art Activity Day – Fused Glass Features

Saturday, April 1, 2017 | 10am - 1pm

Remember of the fun of playing with Mr. Potato Head? Join us in The Glass Studio for a fun-filled activity of making your own fused glass features. Each participant will be given several different glass shapes including eyes, ears, nose, mouth and even a hat. You will then be able to decorate these pieces however your heart desires. After the pieces are fused in the kiln, you can stick them in a real potato and see how creative you can be. Projects are $15 each.

This is a drop-in activity. You do not need to register. Please pay at the event.
