First Fusing Class Description

glass coaster class by Leland DennickIn this 3.5 hour class you’ll make two 4″ by 4″ coasters and one 6″ square piece using several different techniques.

Projects will be fired after class and available for pick up in within a few days. We can also ship.

• The day begins with a brief safety talk and gets rolling with a lecture demo on the most important aspects of working with fused glass: color reactions, volume control & fun.

• We’ll then cut and assemble pieces for the first coaster.  No prior glass work glass class self portraitexperience is necessary, but those who do have experience can enjoy more complicated projects.  Ideas include abstract designs, self portraits (fun for kids!) and animal portraits.  We’ll use sheet glass, powdered glass (AKA grit), stringers (long skinny sticks of glass) and glass rods of Bullseye brand fusable glass.

• For the second coaster students can choose from our pre-made part sheets to create a silly fish or other design.  Part sheets are patterned glass made from a combination of advanced techniques resulting in unique glass with various designs and  textures.

• The third project, a 6″ square, may be created using any of the above techniques.

The class fee includes glass and firing costs. Class size is limited to two, so each person has plenty of space and attention.
