Intro to Fusing Advanced Class
In this advanced class, students will learn to fuse layers of glass together in a kiln. Unlike our other classes, there is no set curriculum and students are encouraged to bring their own creativity. Previous students have created flowers, bowls, trays, jewelry, and sports emblems, among many other things. Basic knowledge of glass cutting is strongly encouraged, although not required.
Classes are held on Saturdays and will meet 4 consecutive Saturdays for the duration of a month. Class times are 10:30am-1pm (bring your lunch!). The first week is largely informational and topics discussed include, fusing elements (fusing glass, stringers, frit, molds, etc.) and basic knowledge of kiln firing temperatures and schedules. Weeks 2-4, students will apply their knowledge and create their pieces. This class is only offered occasionally, so be sure to inquire with us about future dates. Limit 4 people per class.
Class fee is $150.00 per student, which includes 2 kiln firings. Students are not required to purchase any tools or equipment. We provide all materials for the completion of your first project and all required tools and equipment while students are in class.
