Hundreds of handmade holiday ornaments created by STARworks Glass and STARworks Ceramics will go on sale at a Holiday Ornament Sale and Open House Dec. 3.
To add to the fun, STARworks Glass is conducting demonstrations that show how some of the glass objects were created and STARworks Ceramics will conduct an ornament workshop.
The workshop sign-up begins at 4:30 p.m. at STARworks Ceramics and is limited to 50 participants. The cost is $5 for children and $7 for adults. The class will take place from 5 to 6 p.m., so that participants can also spend some time at the open house in the glass studio.
At STARworks Glass, the demonstrations will be ongoing and are designed to provide some insight into how some of the available hand blown glass items are created.
“This is an excellent opportunity to find a special gift for that friend or family member that you have a tough time pleasing each year,” said Nick Fruin, STARworks Glass coordinator. Another possibility for that hard to buy for person is a gift certificate for a glassblowing class or a ceramics workshop.
The open house will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and is free. Holiday refreshments will be served. STARworks Glass and STARworks Ceramics are located at the rear of STARworks Center for Creative Enterprise at 100 Russell Drive in Star.
