In this fast paced, jam packed 2 part workshop, we will teach you everything basic that you'll need to know about working with Fused Glass!

This class is a must for everyone who wants to learn the "why's" and not just the "how's". We'll cover terminology, compatibility, special glass, tools, slumping and draping molds, safety considerations and a variety of glass kilns. You'll go home with a mini-manual of information to refer back to and you'll make lots of samples with different techniques! 

Everything is included; reference manual, fusible, glass, accessory glass, fiber paper, kiln firings, use of molds and more! Samples will be fired in-between sessions so that we can discuss the results in part 2. 

No experience necessary. Please wear closed toe shoes, safety glasses and bring your favorite pen to take lots of notes! Reservations required.  $150
