APRIL 6TH  2019  Saturday Afternoon 2-5 PM


All students:  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 available for student use.  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).   System 96 glass is used during the class.  If you decide to make more projects outside of class and don’t have a kiln, you can pay Great Glass Galore to fire them.
Learn about the materials used in fusing and how to clean and assemble them.  You will also learn a basic firing schedule for a small project, and about the changing properties of glass as it heats and cools.  You will have time to make one large project (up to a 12x12” square or 12” round plate) and several smaller projects.
Non-Beginners:  Just 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.

Beginners:  :  Make one of over 3 dozens patterns of 15 pieces or less, learning the steps of the copper foil method (cutting, grinding, foiling, soldering, and framing). Try Great Glass Galore tools the 1st week, then purchase or rent tools by the 2nd week.
Non-Beginners:  Work on whatever you want at your own pace (lamps, boxes, clocks, large windows, fusing, mosaics, stepping stones, or another stained glass panel).  Get added help and tips to advance your stained glass skills and knowledge.  You can also learn the lead came method of stained glass.
