GLASS FUSION DROP IN

Friday April 12th 7-9:30 pm

Make your own glass fusion project. We have a great ‘book of ideas’ with fantastic step by step instructions on all kinds of glass fusion projects – or better yet – come with your own idea. Pinterest is a great place to get some crazy ideas!

I am here in the studio with you to help you along your project path.

Prerequisite: Intro to Glass Fusion or prior Glass Fusion experience

INTRO TO GLASS FUSION

Saturday, April 13th  1-3:30 pm

No experience required… and you will get 2 Fused Glass Drink Coasters and a 6″ Dish or Votive at the end of your experience.

Our “Introduction to Glass Fusion” class takes you from a newbie Glass Fuser to mild mannered expert of sorts. We’ll cover all the safety requirements, the various kinds of glass we’ll be using and practice on all the different tools you will be using. This is a ‘hands on’ class.
This class is a pre-requisite to all other glass classes we offer.

All tools, glass, safety glasses and instruction are included in this great introductory class.

STONEWARE GLAZING

Sunday, April 14th 1-3:30 pm

Mix and match our many different glazes to create a piece that is very unique and yours. Stoneware is ‘pre-shaped’ and you apply our specialty glazes. No need to worry about a wobbley mug or a tea pot whose lid doesn’t fit.

The primary advantage of Stoneware is that it is very durable (harder than ceramics or porcelain) , holds heat extremely well and is freezer to oven to dishwasher safe. You have a choice of items to paint and we now have over 28 different glaze colors to pick from.
Mix and match glazes to make truly unique earthy designs.

INTRO TO NEEDLE FELTING

Needle Felting is ‘SCULPTING WITH WOOL!

You will be amazed at how much fun (and addicting) Needle Felting can be!

During this introductory class you will learn about the different kinds of wool, how to start your ‘shape’ and how to bring features and character to your own creation.

Classes includes a starter kit with 5 colors of wool, a large felting pad, felting needles and expert guidance by a very talented fiber artist!

You will have time to get a great start on your project – and will be able to take your kit home with you (your needles, wool and felting pad).

No experience required.
