Choose from a variety of art and maker related classes for anyone 14 years of age and older to learn new hands-on techniques. Maker Playground features several Maker Labs, that we use as classrooms for our partnered instructors to use to facilitate art and maker-related classes. More Art Classes held in the Maker Labs for people 13 and under can be found at Fishers Parks.

Stained Glass

We will teach you how to “cut” glass, apply the copper foil, and solder your piece together.  By the end of the class you will have your very own creation completed and ready to take home with you, and you may even have found a new hobby. 

For Beginners
During this fun and informative class, anyone ages 12 and older, will get your hands on glass and learn the process of creating stained glass from start to finish, using the copper foil technique.  This class is an opportunity for you to try something you’ve always wondered about without the need to purchase any equipment, tools or supplies, as we supply everything you will need to create your project.  You don’t need any experience, just enthusiasm, and a willingness to try something new.
