Project In A Day Glass Classes Sept.-Dec. 2016


By Linda Ehlers - August 12, 2016

It's time to start thinking about fall and holiday projects.  All the "Project In A Day" glass classes are open to students with no glass experience.  These are great classes to do with your family and friends.

The "Fused Ornaments and/or Tree Dishes" class is open to ages 7 and up.  Families like to sign up for this one...children, parents, aunts, uncles, and grandparents come together.  All other classes are open to ages 13 and up.

I've added a new class, "Fused Square Bowl/Plate"... another great class for beginners to make a project that is great for gift giving.

FUSED ORNAMENTS and/or TREE DISHES
Ornaments:  Cut and assemble 4 glass ornaments (3x3” bell, star, teardrop, and globe) that the instructor will fire in the kiln.  Expect to spend $22-$60 ($5-6/ornament plus the cost of optional dichroic glass) on fusing supplies.  Tool rental included.  No fusing or glass experience required.
Tree Dishes:  Decorate 2 tree shaped dishes.  The instructor cuts undecorated  tree shapes out of clear or white fusing glass for you ahead of class.   Large is 7.75x9” (cost is $16 for a clear base or $17.50 for white), or small is 6x7” ($13 clear/$14.50 white).  Let the teacher know at least 48 hours ahead which sizes and colors you would like to make.  You decorate them with frit, stringers, noodles, paint, nuggets, dichroic scrap glass, and confetti glass, which are all included in the price.  Dichroic firesticks, non-scrap dichroic glass, and precut glass shapes are extra.  The instructor then fires them in a glass kiln.  No fusing or glass experience required. Tool rental included.
 

FUSED SQUARE BOWL/PLATE
Cut and assemble a 12" square bowl that the instructor will fire in the kiln.  Choose to slump your square project into one of three shapes (deep bowl, shallow bowl, or plate).  You will learn how to use the straight edge cutter to create your base.  Then decorate that base with frit, stringers, noodles, paint, nuggets, dichroic scrap glass, and confetti glass, which are all included in the class fee.  The base glass, dichroic firesticks, non-scrap dichroic glass, and precut glass shapes are paid for separately from the class fee.  No fusing or glass experience required. Tool rental and firing fee included.


SENSATIONAL SNOWFLAKES
Cut, foil, solder and assemble a snowflake using glass, bevels, and globs.  Students without any glass experience will pick a snowflake that needs no cutting, and will learn how to foil & solder them.   Expect to spend $15-$30 on materials.  Tool rental included.  These make great holiday gifts!  Learn how to make one and make many more at home by yourself.
