Oakley's Brazee Street Studios wants to celebrate Fiona the hippo's fourth birthday with a special DIY project.

You can immortalize the Cincinnati Zoo's plump princess by making your very own fused glass Fiona plate. The team at the studios' GLASSROOM will be hosting a special Zoom birthday party where guests can use a take-home kit to create their own work of art.

This all-ages event takes place at 5:30 p.m. Jan. 21. (Fiona's birthday is Jan. 24.)
