Looking for an early Mother’s Day treat? The Museum of Glass is offering a special extended fused glass workshop this Saturday, during which you can create a 9×7-inch glass tile to give as a wall hanging, decorative plate or a trivet.

The workshop will be led by local artist Kéké Cribbs, who will explain the science behind fusing and micro-mosaic, and guide participants in the use of fusing techniques and materials, including decorative murrini, custom cut shapes, stenciling and stamping. Tiles will be fired overnight and shipped to participants’ homes.

Workshop times are 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. and 2-5 p.m. Cost is $150, including museum admisttion, shipping and a 10 per cent discount coupon for the museum café. Pre-registration is required: call 253-284-4719. www.museumofglass.org
