Huronia Art Glass

 

Introduction to Fusing

The focus of this workshop is to introduce participants to basic fusing using kiln firing in order to create original fused glass artwork.  Cheryl Culley, who has many years of glass fusing experience and taught this workshop before, will lead the session and be on hand to help with all of your questions.

Learn about glass compatibility and the different firing programs that we use in our large kilns. Combine opals, cathedrals, iridescent and dichroics with your own one-of-a-kind design for very personal results.

Become familiar with ceramic paper products, preparation and use of glass powders, frit, stringers and nuggets that are used in glass fusing.  Design an original plate or bowl to be full fired and then slump fired into one of our molds.  You can also make samplers, ornaments or small pieces of jewellery combining full and tack firing methods.  Learn about efficient use of space as you load your own creation into one of the kilns.

Previous fusing experience is not required, but glass cutting experience is necessary, so bring your own cutter, pliers and marking pens.
