Are you suffering a holiday hangover—that dull, lingering feeling that comes after the excitement of the holidays is over, the decorations are pulled down and the parties are but a distant memory?
You need to shake off the doldrums by getting out of the house and doing something creative. And if you need motivation, head to Fusions Glass Studio in Eagle for First Friday on Jan. 6, when your inner glass artist can be fully realized.
You can try your hand at creating your own stunning work of fused glass for little to no cost—making a pendant will cost you zip, while attempting a dream catcher will be $5.
The crew at Fusions will lead visitors through the process of designing the glass, then the pros will fire them in one of the studio's seven kilns. You won't walk away with your creation that night but it will be ready within a few days.
The studio also hosts regular walk-in projects on Fridays, when visitors can attempt to make anything from plates and picture frames to night lights and pencil holders for $15-$35, depending on the project.
All ages are welcome, so maybe it's just the thing to snap the kids out of their back-to-school funk.
