Glass Fusing Workshops

for beginning and advanced students




Glass Fusing also called kiln‐formed glass offers an outlet for creativity; for those who are artistically blessed as well as those who are artistically challenged. As I always say: "Glass is difficult to mess up". You will be able to create anything from functional to expressive from Jewelry to Sculpture, from Table Ware to Wall Art ‐ nearly everything is possible in the craft of glass fusing.


This class will combine beginning and advanced students. The procedures and techniques that will be taught in this class will include compatibility & testing, basic fusing techniques, annealing, and slumping. Art glass, recycled glass and stringers will be used to produce tiles, dishes, and jewelry. Bottle & window glass will be transformed into fascinating forms.


The advanced kiln forming techniques take fusing to another level. Mold making, pattern bars, combing and casting will be some of the techniques explored.


The class will be a hands‐on experience using these methods to create original pieces. The costs of Materials depend on the projects you are making. Small jewelry pieces require less glass than big bowls and plates. Working in glass can become costly but we will show you how to use it economically and your finished work will usually exceed the value of the material.


A Beginner's Kit with the required tools will be available from the instructor on the first day of class for $90. Additional firing fees might be charged for certain projects.
