INTRO TO FUSING 

The goal of this workshop is to introduce you to basic fusing using kiln firing in order to create a beautiful, original fused glass plate or bowl.

Learn about glass compatibility and the different firing programs that we use in our large kilns.  Combine opal, cathedral, iridescent and dichroic glasses with your own one-of-a-kind preparations 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.  If time permits, you can make samplers, ornaments or small pieces of jewelry combining full and tack firing methods.  Learn about efficient use of space as you load your own creation into one of the kilns.

No previous fusing experience is required, however glass cutting is necessary.  Bring your own cutter, pliers and marking pens.
