ONSITE: Glass Fusing + Slumping for the Absolute Beginner

Learn to fuse and slump glass in the kiln. We'll create designs by cutting colored sheet glass, using glass stringers, rods and frits. By layering patterns and firing glass in kilns, students can create tiles, bowls, plates and panels. No previous experience needed.

Special Notes

  • Some materials are supplied in class; students will be charged for the glass they use at the end of the session. This class is ONLY open to students who are new to VisArts or are new to glass. If you are not new to VisArts or glass, please take another class appropriate for your skill level. Please wear closed toe shoes. Most students can expect to spend between 20-70 on additional glass.
