Course Code: AFGP-fa23 Categories: , Tag:


Fusing glass is the process of bonding separate pieces of glass together in a specially designed kiln, at heats of up to 1600 degrees. In this fun, quick class, we will make an 8 inch square, into a plate, or an 8 inch circle, into a bowl. We will start with a dark, solid colored background piece of glass, 2 layers thick.  On top of that, you will add pre-cut flowers, leaves, vines, and other small bits of colored glass, to create your garden.  Your pieces will be heated in the kiln to a ‘full fuse’, so that the pieces you added will melt into the background piece, creating a flat surface. It will be put into the kiln a second time to slump it into either the plate or bowl shape.  There is no glass cutting involved in this class. Therefore, students can be as young as 8 years, provided that they are accompanied by an adult. 12 years and up if unaccompanied.  Maximum of 5 students per session.  Class is one hour long. *Your piece will be ready for pick up after approximately 2 weeks. This class is for ages 16 and up and has a materials fee of $75 payable to the teacher upon arrival.
