This week's project is wind chimes*. You choose your basic size and then get creative with your design. Make a 2"x6" header with up to 5 simple chimes for $26 (normally $29) or a 5"x7" header with up to 5 simple chimes for $38 (normally $42). Prices include wire loops that will be trapped between glass pieces to allow connecting the chimes with fishing line. No experience necessary.
*You are not limited to only making the Saturday project - we encourage flexibility and creativity.
This and many other projects can also be made during our Open Studio time earlier in the week: Wed-Fri 11-5pm.
Creative Escape Glass LLC is a fused glass open studio where you can make your own pieces! Open studio hours mean you get to learn glass cutting basics and fused glass basics on demand - you walk-in, we teach you, you make a project.
You can come anytime during open studio hours to get started, and plan on spending 1-3 hours of making time depending on the project you choose. Reservations are recommended but tables are often available with short notice. Call ahead to ensure that you get a table. Go to our Facebook page to get details on this week's project.
There is no cost for a studio tour and for a basic glass cutting workshop. If you want to make a piece to take home with you, projects start at $5 and go up from there based on the size of the project and materials used. Average project cost is $34. Pieces are normally ready to pick up within a week, or shipping is available for an additional fee.
Children 12+ can normally do an independent project, kids 8-11 may need an adult assistant, 7 and younger definitely need a one-on-one adult assistant. Young children not involved in the creation process are not a good idea since the front of the studio is full of breakables and the back of the studio is full of sharp edges, all within easy reach. Neither of you will have fun if you must spend your time trying to keep them away from pretty, shiny objects.
