Whatever you choose to create at Glassworks Studio, whether you choose to do an abstract design, or a picture, ends up looking professional after they are fused. You don’t need to be an artist and there is no right and wrong.
We visited Glassworks Studio one Sunday afternoon during walk in sessions (reservations are necessary to guarantee that there will be enough space). The place was hopping. There was enough staff for everyone to get their own individualized attention. There was also a birthday party taking place in the adjoining party room.
When we arrived, we were told to choose what we wanted to design. There is an incredible amount of options including vases, bowls, trays, coasters, circle shapes, heart shapes, picture frames and many types of specialty items to decorate. Once we chose what to decorate, and gained inspiration from the many samples, we were seated with the materials, tools and instructions.
Stacey, the owner, explained to us how we can decorate our glass squares. Either we can decorate by creating our own design or by tracing one of the many pictures they have and using that as the guide. We were shown how to cut the glass and we also were able to choose from the plethora of cut pieces all divided by color. We were given goggles for safety while cutting, and glue to secure the glass pieces so that the glass stays in place.
Once we finished our projects we left it there to be fused. Projects are ready a week later for pickup. For more distant cities, they offer to help send your project home with someone that comes at a later date.
It was an amazing experience cutting the glass and creating our masterpieces. We can’t wait for our projects to be ready!
