This six-day class will explore graphic possibilities using colored glass and the murrine technique.

The class will culminate with Brass ‘N Glass, YAYA’s annual glass studio celebration, featuring live music and special glass demos. Experience level: intermediate preferred. Class size: 6 participants max.
