Watch out because you are likely to get addicted to the easy process and fun results of glass fusing with the Glass Palette folks. You'll come away with something cool and have a super fun evening or class.

Found The Glass Palette on TA and visited with my UVA daughter. Very helpful owners and well worth the visit to create a one of a kind work piece of glass art. Great afternoon of creativity.
