The best part about the Glass Bar is the accessibility. Our glass fusing classes are not only for kids; Our classes are for artists of all ages.

At The Glass Bar, we have developed our classes with beginners in mind and tailored our kid's classes for little hands. We know that some kids (and adults too) learn by visuals, others listen, and some are hands-on.

We have reformed our teaching style to accommodate all students' needs. Our goal is to ensure everyone will have a great time and make a one-of-a-kind project!

The Glass Bar was opened in 2013 by the mother-daughter team: Sheryl and Jordan. The pair discovered their love for glass art as they both underwent treatment for cancer. Creating art was so therapeutic for the two, they decided to open The Glass Bar to share that joy with the community.

What is Glass Fusing?
Glass fusing is the bonding of separate pieces of glass by high heat, administered in a kiln. Itís easy to learn the basics of glass fusing, itís fun, and the possibilities are endless. There is a vast range of techniques, and we are always experimenting!

Believe it or not, the art of Glass Fusing has been around since about 2000 BCE. However, glass fusing lost its' popularity as Stained Glass swept the scene during the Renaissance period. It wasn't until the 1960s that glass fusing re-emerged, now glass fusing is one of the fastest-growing art forms.

What Will My Child Learn?
At The Glass Bar, you have the opportunity to experiment with many different styles of glass fusing. As the world of glass fusing expands, so does our collection of materials. We are always on the hunt for new techniques to keep our students excited and engaged.

Glass is not a material that is often found in schools or craft stores. We're here to bring it to you! Glass art is a new art form for many kids, and we aim to reveal each student's inner artist. We are always brainstorming new classes. Keep checking back for updated listings.

What Do Classes Involve?
Join us for a kid's glass fusing class on a Saturday Morning! This class is an hour and a half long, and perfect for ages 6 & up. Students will learn the basics of glass fusing to create a sun-catcher of their own design.

Learned techniques include cutting straight lines, curved lines, and circles. Students will brainstorm ideas to create a piece they will be proud of! Pieces must left over-night to fire in the kiln and will be ready for collection in about two weeks.
