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.

The piece we made was 55.00 dollars. Various prices from 50.00 to 300.00. Lots of fun!

I think the small pieces start at about $35. There were four in our group 2 of us worked on one piece and two others did separate ones. We were very pleased with our end results .
