Beveled Snowflake

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 and solder it.  Choose from over 18 patterns.  Tool rental and materials included. These make great holiday gifts!  Learn how to make one, and make many more at home by yourself. 

Fused Ornaments and/or Tree Dishes
Cut and assemble up to 4 glass ornaments (3x3” bell, star, teardrop, and globe) that the instructor will fire in the kiln, drill a hole to hang it, and add a ribbon to hang it from.  Expect to spend $20-$32 ($5-8/ornament plus the cost of optional dichroic glass) on fusing supplies.  One small 2” round clear ornament is free.   

AND/OR 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.

Note:  There is enough class time to make 4 ornaments, or 1 tree dish + 2 ornaments, or 2 tree dishes. Ornaments take 2 days for the instructor to fire/drill holes, and tree dishes may take up to a week to fire.
