If you’ve got nothing on the family sports schedule tonight, think about making your own beer mug for Saint Patrick’s Day. It’s one of several interesting glass craft classes offered at GlassRoots, a studio space in Newark.

Their St. Paddys Beer Mug Blast is tonight (Wednesday, March 9) from 6 to 9 p.m. For $40, you create a stencil to sandblast on a beer mug.

On Saturday, March 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. there’s a parent/child glassblowing glass. Participants will learn basic glassblowing skills by making a simple object, and then practice those skills by working as a team. The class fee is $225. Same day, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., GlassRoots will participate in the GoNewark HoopFest to celebrate the 2011 NCAA East Regional Division I Mens Basketball Tournament with free glassblowing and flameworking demonstration, and a class that lets you make glass beads in your team colors. That class costs $30 per person.

On Wednesday, April 6, from 6 to 9 p.m., there’s a Ladies Night jewelry class that GlassRoots is touting this way: “Think you’re having hot flashes? Try making your own glass beads working on a 2000-degree torch.” They’re inviting participants to bring their own bottle of wine and Glassroots will supply the snacks. Class fee is $50.

Also in the jewelry department, there’s a beaded bezel glass cabochon pendant class on Sunday, April 10, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. You’ll combine kiln-fired glass with crystals and seed beads. Class fee is $55.

GlassRoots Studio is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It is located at 10 Bleeker Street in Newark, one block from the Newark Museum. For additional information on classes or to register, visit its Web site, call (973) 353-9555 or e-mail.
