Gift Certificates Make Great Gifts

If you know someone who loves Door County, a gift certificate for a glass workshop is a perfect gift! The workshops are user friendly with no artistic experience necessary! They are just fun. The Glass Night(which can also happen during the day lol) is a two hour class.  You can bring a beverage of your choice and relax and have fun doing something truly unique. And it is a beautiful keepsake from your trip. There are classes listed on the website but I am flexible on scheduling a time that works for you!

Glass Night(or Day ;)

Photo is pre-Covid. Masks are worn and people have plenty of space around them.  Gather with a group of friends or enjoy making new ones. Glass Night is a fun workshop in a relaxing atmosphere. Each person creates a glass bowl under the instruction of Deanna Clayton.  It is a very user-friendly project that requires no previous experience with glass.  The project takes about 1 1/2 hrs to complete.  A mold is provided for you. You get to work with the colored glass and stencils to create your unique bowl. It's a lot of fun. Bowls are in the kiln for 4 days and can be shipped for $15 if you are leaving Door County before they are finished
