Classy, Sassy Art Glass

Bearden's Stained Glass
7600 Metcalf
Overland Park
913-268-5018, Susan Wiens

1st & 2nd Wednesday of the month
(Feb. 5&12, Mar. 5&12, Apr. 2&9)

Darcy Bearden owner of Beardens Stained Glass and Susan Wiens, a glass artist living with Parkinsons, have create an art glass class for people with Pd.

Ever think you could work with colored art glass to produce lively, colorful projects--with a sense of "YES I CAN!" Well, we are going to teach you how! Learn how to cut the glass into your own designs, attach it, use of a kiln (oven)--all aspects of the "How's and Why's of Glass." Each class will have a project, usually completed in one session--a fish, a nightlite, keyrings, a votive holder, a frame, etc. There will be a small fee associated with the project usually in the $10-15 range.

Call Susan at 913-268-5018 to register as space is limited to 10. Come to our next class and see how much fun we can have!
