Learn about the magic of fused glass while making a unique, personalized fused glass plaque. Decorative or functional, the choice is yours: a house number sign, landscape, geometric or abstract design – it’s up to you!  You will create one 8”x11” inch (or smaller) plaque during class. Use decorative components including glass frit, stringer, cabochons, and iridescent and dichroic glass to enhance your design. Instruction will include information on the basic properties of glass and fused glass, glass types, color selection, glass cutting and project assembly so that you can create a beautiful, finished product. 
You will have access to glass hand tools, glass cutting systems, a diamond wheel grinder and a ring saw. Following the class, your piece will undergo an overnight kiln firing to fuse all the glass elements of your design into a single piece of glass.

Materials fee includes all needed fusible art glass, decorative components, use of hand and power glass cutting and shaping tools, use of safety equipment, consumables required for kiln firing, and overnight kiln firing. Bring a pen and notebook to take notes. Everything else you need will be provided. Projects will be available for pick-up about a week after class to allow for kiln firing time. Allow 15-20 minutes at pick-up drill holes for hanging or mounting.

No experience required! You are required to wear closed-toe shoes. Also, please wear comfortable clothes and avoid overly loose or flowing clothing and jewelry. Class size is limited to ensure personal attention. Class fills fast so register early!
