Art at Brucemore: Glass Holiday Sweater Ornaments

December 3, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Sold out!Ticket

The Glass Ugly Sweater Ornament workshop is sold out! 

Embrace that festive feeling!

Brucemore is partnering with the Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass Studio to bring a new festive workshop to the Art at Brucemore series! In this workshop, participants will design festive sweater ornaments made of glass. Using a warm glass technique, choose whether you will craft an ugly holiday sweater, a high fashion statement sweater, or something in between. All materials and instructions are provided, and no experience is necessary to participate!

Participants may purchase one ornament or two ornaments to complete during the workshop time. Every guest must purchase at least one ornament to participate in the workshop. Sharing projects is not allowed and will land you on the naughty list!

Participants will craft and set their ornaments at Brucemore. All projects will go back to the Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass studio for firing in their kilns. Brucemore will notify participants when their creations are ready for pick-up from the Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass Studio approximately three weeks following the class date, just in time to hang your masterpiece on your tree!

Please register by November 30 at 5:00 PM to reserve your spot.
