Even though sheet glass is used, fusing has many dimensions. Harness the heat of the kiln and explore a wide selection of glass materials to produce an array of functional works of art. Learn multiple creative techniques, including full and tack fuses, the effective use of glass powders and frits, and the method by which faux murrine patterns are produced. Among the many topics covered will be kiln theory, glass compatibility, bubble control, kiln programs, and coldworking.
Class tuition includes 1 session of open-studio time per student to be used during the 8-week course period. This will help you become familiar with the studio itself and learn the process of studio rental beyond class hours.
