Come and find out why melting glass is so fun and addictive in this fast paced class that will give you a chance to explore kiln fired glass and many of the techniques that make melting glass so exciting!
In this 2-day class, you will be using Bullseye glass to create several glass pendants.
Day 1: Students will be using clear and black dichroic glass as a base and then layering colored dichroic glass over to create sparkle and depth. We will cut and assemble 2 pieces of glass that will be full fused into large squares.
Day 2: In the second class students will cut and shape your full fused glass into pendants, using a variety of cold working techniques. You will gain cold working experience by using different equipment to achieve the desired pendant shapes. The cold working equipment includes: Grinder, flat lap grinder, glass band saw and drill press. Before firing a second time to fire polish your work, we will add fine silver to create a way to hang your pendant.
Your pendants will be fired and annealed off-site and you will be notified when they are available for pick up within a few days after the class.
Tuition is $115.00 per student and includes all glass materials and several silver chains.
Beginners and advanced students, age 12 and up, are welcome to participate.
