    Recently my wife, kids and I were in Israel, and one of the places we visited was Tzfat. Big Kabbalastic city that’s become more and more known for it’s art. One place recommended to us by a friend was to visit Kathleen Wasserman’s workshop at QuiltedArtGlass. QuiltedArtGlass is located in an apartment up a steep staircase in Kikar Hameginim, but is worth it.

    Had an amazing time. I went with my wife, and we each made something special. Kathleen was very energetic and fun and helped us every step of the way. She even busted out a bottle of wine, on the house. A great, affordable activity for kids or as a date night. She also has beautiful pieces for purchase – great gift ideas.

    The kids had a fantastic tone with making glass art! Kathleen was so kind and patient, answering our million questions and personally assisting our three year old with his masterpiece. Our seven and nine year olds loved creating their own pieces of art-each at their own skill level.
    Kathleen herself is an accomplished artist, with exceptional pieces showcased all over her home. It was such a pleasure getting to know Kathleen and to experience her craft here in Tzfat.

    We are a family of 5, mom dad, 9 year old boy, 7 year old b and g twins. During the Passover vacation usually things are mobbed, but today in Sefat it was quiet, the blue and white parking was free and the art project was sooooo much fun!

    The owner, Kathleen, is a glass artist and really knowledgeable in her field. She has a small gallery where you can buy some of her pieces.

    There is a large selection of different types of glass to choose from, she was so patient with my kids, and they flipped flopped between colors and designs. You can do small designs for 50 NIS for a 3″ square piece, 100 nis for a 6″ mezzuzah Otherwise 15 nis per 100 grams. Of course my kids picked the custom sizes.

    Kiln time takes 8 hours, however, pieces can be mailed to you.

    Basically this is a fused glass technique where you layout the glass pieces on a sheet of glass in any design you want and it gets fired. My kids all made custom plates and I made a sign for our yard. My husband decided to help the kids. We were taught how to score and cut the glass. She provided all the supplies, down to tweezers. We all had a lot of fun.

    The reason I am giving a 4 is because: the gallery is up two flights of narrow stairs, and the road itself is not that accessible by cars. The owner is willing to work with people at the entrance to her studio if someone is not able to do the stairs, however, the old city of sefat itself does have some limitations. We parked at the college near by, and walked over, but it could be an issue for handicapped people.

    There are plenty of quick bites to eat near by, but we brought our own lunch, and had a picnic in the park down the road.

    We were there for slightly over two hours. Overall fun time was had by all!
