Intro to Fusing – This 3 hour class is designed to give the complete beginner an introduction to fused glass and teach a base of skills necessary to participate in the open studio setting where you will make your own decisions about how to build projects to be fired at Fused Finery. It is also required prior to taking any other classes offered. You’ll learn about glass compatibility, the basics of firing, types of glass available, simple glass cutting, 2 layer design, and how our open studio works. You will make a plate that can be picked up after the two required firings. Pick-up time will be announced in class. Introductory level - $75.00
Pretty Pendants – Design your own custom pendants in this 2 hour class. Our studio is stocked with a wide range of colored and patterned sheet glass to select from as you learn to design, cut and assemble glass. You will make 3 different pendants (including one made of dichroic glass) that we will fire for you. This project includes a bail for each of your pendants and one silver chain. Instruction and all materials are included. Your pendants will be ready for pick-up after firing which will take a few days. Pick-up day will be announced during class. Introductory level - $65.00
Kiln Carving Basics – Kiln carving is a method used to add dimension to your glass pieces. Using a fiberglass material, you can create just about any design you can make using an X-Acto® knife and a pair of scissors. The design is then placed under sheet glass and, “Voila!”, the kiln does its’ magic with a little help from gravity! You will create a plate (mold of your choosing) using a suggested design or one of your own. All materials and instruction are included. The finished piece will be available for pick-up after fuse and slump firings are complete. Pick-up time will be announced during this 2 hour class. Introductory level - $65.00
Garden Art – This fun 2-hour class is a great way for students of all levels to try glass fusing. Create 2 garden inspired projects as you learn to cut, design, and learn how glass reacts in the kiln. Projects may include garden row markers, sun catchers, colorful flowers or birds or or other colorful glass elements to embellish your garden. All glass materials, tools, and supplies are provided in class. Projects will be fused and then ready for pick-up at a later time (to be announced during class). Introductory level - $65.00
