You asked for it, I’m offering private lessons in glass fusing at our studio in Sebastopol.
Here’s how it works. For an hour fee (two hour minimum) I’ll provide instruction and tools – cutters, grinder, tile saw, kilns, polishers, etc. You only need to bring your own eye protection (glasses or safety glasses) and wear appropriate clothing (including closed toe shoes). The fee includes some glass. Additional glass and materials are available for purchase. Buy just enough to complete your project. In addition to Bullseye brand’s vibrant color palette of 90 COE glass, my students can also use one of a kind components that I’ve made, incuding raked, painted and layered glass.
Learn a new technique, make gifts, have fun! Adults, and children age 8 and up with parental supervision. One to two people at a time.
