Glass Fusing + Slumping
Learn to fuse and slump glass in the kiln. We’ll cover how to create designs by cutting colored sheet glass and layering patterns using frits, powders, stringers and liquid line. We’ll also employ a variety of other glass–working techniques. Use your newfound knowledge to make plates, bowls, tiles and bas–relief. Beginners will work on specific assignments while returning students may choose to work on independent projects.
- All materials supplied in class; Students will be charged for the glass they use, assessed at the end of the session.
- Classes are confirmed one week prior to the start date. In order to help us confirm classes, please register as early as possible.
