Saturday, December 11th | 10:00am-12:00pm | Get Into Glass: Introduction to Fusing and Slumping

Learn the popular art of glass fusing! In this class, create a 6-inch square plate and choose from a huge assortment of colors and textures, then design your very own piece. Throughout the design process, you'll learn how to safely and easily cut glass to fit your pattern. Student projects will then be placed in the kiln to be fused (melted flat). A second kiln firing, called slumping, will produce a shaped piece, such as a bowl.

Please note: Please wear closed toe shoes. All tools provided and no prior experience is required. Please bring safety glasses or be prepared to purchase a pair from the studio ($5). Projects will be kiln-fired and available for pick up 10 days after class. 


This class is appropriate for ages 14+.

This class will take place indoors at Studio 34 Creative Arts Learning Center, located at 34 Elton St, Rochester, NY 14607. The studio is located on the second floor of the largest of the three brick buildings on Elton St. Please use the entrance on the right side of the building.
