Glass Color Twist Pendant Class @ The Rising Phoenix Gallery
Dec 17 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

This Beginner level class teaches a number of fundamentals essential to more advanced projects. Not only that it’s a fun way to get introduced to working behind a torch. Students will learn the skills such as how to encase color, heat and torch control, striping, twisting and a few other essentials required to create twisted color ribbon pendants. The class will include a step by step demo by the instructor. The students will then have approximately 2.5 hours of torch time of their own. During this time students are encouraged to create as many pieces as they can. Our Lampworking/Torch working class sizes are limited to 3 people at a time. This provides each student with plenty of opportunities to ask questions and get personalized quality responses and one on one instruction.

VISIT MICHIGAN CITY LAPORTE EVENTS

Set real life aside for a moment and just let yourself have fun. Make faces at the monkeys at the zoo. Sip some local brews that have won World Beer Cup medals. Pick your own baskets full of blueberries or apples. Stuff yourself with a pirate’s treasure of candy. Take lady luck for a spin around 65,000 square feet of gaming. Get lost in mazes of corn. You’ll find fun and laughter come naturally here.
