Glass Fusion “Drop In”
Friday March 16th 7-9:30 PM
Now that you’ve taken our ‘Introduction to Glass Fusion Class’ – you’ll want to come back and 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. Pat will be on hand to help you along the way – in case you need some help or want to bounce a few ideas around.
Studio time is only $10 for the whole evening. Glass cost is very reasonable – and includes all kiln firings in Big Red (our trusty kiln).
Intro to Glass Fusion
Saturday March 17th 1-3:30 PM
No experience required… (it’s easy – once you know how). Our “Introduction to Glass Fusion” class takes you from a newbie Glass Fuser to mild mannered expert of sorts. We cover all the safety requirements, the various kinds of glass we’ll be using and practice on all the different tools of a glass fuser. During the class we’ll make a couple of 4” x 4” coasters and a 6” dish or bowl. 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.
