Proud To Be An American Nightlight or Suncatcher Flag Workshop

MAY 18, 2022 AT 6:30 PM – 8 PM

Fly it High and Fly it Proud!

Please join us for this awesome American Flag glass workshop. The cost for this class is only $30.
You will create your design by using a special tac glue as an adhesive. All projects will go home with the instructor to be kiln fired and assembled and delivered back to the Farmhouse the following week. Pickup dates will be determined. (Usually Weds or Saturday pickup between 12:00 noon – 3:00pm) Dimensions: 3.5″

This type of class does require you to work at your own pace from simple instructions. No experience is necessary, however, I will give you a quick set of designing tips in the beginning and then you will be provided the glass to create your project. If you can assemble a puzzle, you can design it! It just takes a steady hand and I will be there to help.

There is very light glass cutting, most of the glass is precut in advance for you. Children age 10+ when accompanied by a paying adult (2 tickets) can join in on the fun too.
You may bring your own beverage in a covered container but no food allowed. Some of the proceeds benefit the Garden City Historical Society. If time allows, doors will open 10 min prior to the event. Thank you for your support!
