Descriptions: Three weeks of vessels. We will create a different vessel every week, each with a different design, closure and challenge. Each week will progressively be harder. We will start with a "Diffuser" for essential oil or perfume. Then create one with a different kind of closure, the "Open Window" will contain a vial that can be used to hold a memento and will have an opening that reveals its inner contents. And finally the "Hinged" one will be set off with a cabochon and a hinged closure. There will be room for personalization for all of them. Choose one or all three. 

This class will be conducted via Zoom. Registrants will be emailed an invitation to join the Zoom meeting 3 days before class and will be required to register with Zoom to gain access. Video will be available for 90 days after the first class and will be available on a private channel on YouTube.
