FUSING CLASS / HOT GLASS CLASS / KILN WORK CLASS DESCRIPTION
All students: Â Make one or more bowls, plates, tiles, clocks, coasters, jewelry and more. The projects are shaped to ceramic or stainless steel molds and Great Glass Galore has over 60 molds Â available for student use. Â The firing fees for all your projects are included in the class fee, but expect to spend $30-$80 on materials. Glass cutting skills are recommended, but not required. Ask about scheduling an optional 1.25 hour glass cutting workshop (cost $20). Â System 96 glass is used during class. Â If you decide to make more projects outside of class and donâ€™t have a kiln, you can pay Great Glass Galore to fire them.
Beginners: Learn about the materials used in fusing and how to clean and assemble them. Â You will also learn a basic firing schedule Â for a small project fired in a small kiln, and about the changing properties of glass as it heats and cools. Â You will have time to make one large project (up to 12x12â€ square plate or up to 12â€ round plate) and several smaller projects.
Non-Beginners: Work on projects at your own pace, or learn more details about firing schedules, setting up your own kiln, kiln wash, molds, fiber papers, or other fusing techniques
