Open Studio Hours: Tuesday through Saturday 1pm to 5pm
Eligibility If you have completed the Intro to Fusing class at Fused Finery, you are eligible to attend Open Studio time. Bring your glass, or purchase what you need from us and enjoy access to tools, kilns and some coldworking equipment (grinders and drill). We do not teach during Open Studio so you must have the basic knowledge and skills necessary to finish your project.
Cost The basic rate is $5/hour with a 2 hour minimum. Additional charges for firings and mold rental will apply and must be paid prior to firing. If you'll be a frequent studio visitor, consider an unlimited monthly studio pass at the cost of $40.
Firing Fees Kiln Firing - $25 for sole use of the 17" kiln, $35 for sole use of the 26" kiln. Individual projects can be fired on a prorated charge based on the footprint of your project. Frequent Fuser Card - $90 covers 5 sole use firings in either kiln. The card is non transferrable and expires 2 years after the date of purchase. The card can be purchased at the studio.
