Saturday, July 27th | 10:00am-12:00pm | Introduction to Fusing and Slumping


In this class, you will design your piece then choose from a huge assortment of colors and textures. You will learn how to safely and easily cut glass to fit your pattern. Projects are then placed in the kiln to be fused: melted flat. A second kiln firing, called slumping, produces a shaped piece such as a bowl. Students create two projects: choice of a flat decorative piece or a square bowl and also a complete pendant necklace. Join us as we learn the fun and popular art of glass fusing!

Please note: All tools provided and no prior experience is required. Please bring safety glasses or be prepared to purchase a pair from the studio ($5). Please wear close-toed shoes. This class is for ages 14 and over.
