ONSITE: Introduction to Glass Fusing + Slumping: Create a Matching Tableware Set

In this class we will make a matching set of tableware: A set of plates, coasters, or small dishes designed to be used. Through this goal, students will be guided through an introduction to glass fusing and slumping. You will learn how to work with glass: cut and lay out designs that are then brought to a full fuse in the kiln and how to work with slumping molds to create glass objects you can use at home.

Special Notes

  • Bring an open mind and a sketchbook!
