Learn the art and science of fusing art glass into cabochons, pendants and earrings.
Using colored and dichroic glass in a variety of textures, you will learn to cut glass, design and assemble, and fuse several pieces. Add metal inclusions and stringer shapes to make your own unique glass creations. Techniques include cutting, assembly, production, firing schedules, grinding, drilling holes and adding bails and other finishing touches. You will complete two projects of your own design. Simple jewelry techniques will be taught to enable you to complete your creations.
The required Materials Fee includes a colorful selection of art glass and dichroic glass, stringer and frit, findings, use of all tools and equipment, handouts and firing fees.
We’ll discuss firing and firing schedules, but your pieces will be fired after class and will be ready for pickup a week after class.
