Mandala in Sanskrit means a Circle. A mandala is an integrated structure organized around a unifying center. In this fun introduction to our new Mandala workshop you will create a 10″ circle Garden Stake inspired by the Mandala design. The class will include glass color choices, glass cutting, layout and ultimately fusing the glass pieces together to make a 1 of a kind and unique Mandala Garden stake.
The final project will come with a beautiful metal garden stake for you to display at your garden.
