Arouse your creativity by designing and creating your own fused glass piece to keep. In this 4-hour class you will receive a short lecture explaining the properties of glass and the kiln fusing process followed by demonstration and instruction on how to cut glass. The rest of the class is hands on for you with instruction and support from me. Select your color palate, design and cut the glass, and assemble the pieces of your project to ready it for the kiln. All tool usage, glass supplies, and kiln firing are included in the class fee.
The projects will be put in the kiln to fire overnight and be available for pick up or delivery later the next day. If you want your plate slumped into a dish shape, that will take longer and arrangements can be made.
