Thing to do in and around Atlanta on Wednesday, Dec. 26

Make your own glass ornament

Get your ornaments in order for next year with this group class in which students make their own blown glass ornaments. Students start by understanding safety, tools and equipment before working one-on-one with the instructor to create their own ornaments. The class is suited to beginners age 18 and older — anyone younger must be accompanied by an adult. The ornaments made are hollow and round and come with a traditional hook for hanging or button top for ornaments designed to sit on a surface or float in water. Items need to cool for 48 hours so students must return to claim their ornaments within 60 days. $44. Times vary, select online. Dec. 26. Decatur Glassblowing, 250 Freeman Street, Decatur. 404-849-0301.
