Experience Glass

There's nothing like learning a new skill to become fully immersed in a place, or in yourself. Take a class or a workshop, learn a new skill from a master craftsman, tap into your inner artist, and make unforgettable memories. Throw clay, shape molten glass, work with stained glass. There are so many ways to discover the magic of creating something with your own hands. Go ahead, surprise yourself!

“The real highlight of the day came when we learned to use color in a  paperweight project. Something that looks so simple is actually one of the hardest things to make. . . . Sure enough, by the end of the day, I had created a masterpiece.”

Becky Pokora, The Girl and the Globe
