Glass Fusing Class

Hot, Hot, Hot.

fused glass fused glassfused glassHave you always seen the beautiful Dicroic glass cabochons and wondered how they were made? Have you looked at them and imagined a piece that you had created yourself? Now you can create it yourself. Judy will be teaching this class.

You will learn things like COE and why it is important to you when working with glass, how to cut glass properly, what it takes to make a cabochon or glass stones for earrings,  grinding the edges of your piece to make it more uniform and much more. There will be hand outs so you don’t have to remember all of these things.

This class will be in two parts and you must be able to attend both parts in order to complete the class. It will be held on two consecutive Saturdays, the first to cut, design, lay out, and get your pieces ready for the kiln. This will be a 3 to 4 hour class.  We will put the pieces into the kiln and then the next Saturday, we will make them into pieces of jewelry. This second class will be about 2 to 2 1/2 hours.

The cost for this class is $145 and includes both days. All materials will be provided. If someone wants to bring special glass, it MUST be approved by Judy in advance due to comparability issues with the glass. A $50 deposit will hold your spot for this class and the balance must be paid two weeks before the class, so ample materials may be obtained.

This is going to be a wonderful class that will open a new door into the art of using glass in your design work that you have not touched upon before. We hope that you can make it to this one as it will be exciting.
