Fused Glass art is created using fusible glass to create suncatchers, bowls, wall art, or jewelry. Fused glass is also known as "warm glass" because the project is fired in a kiln up to 1400 degrees, melting the glass together. These projects can typically be completed in one 2-hour session. We will fuse and slump your art for pickup later. Some projects may require glass cutting.
Stained Glass art is created by using a pattern and tracing it onto art glass, cutting the glass, and grinding the edges for foiling. Once the pieces are foiled, they are soldered together with a hot iron. The project is completed by adding a patina and polishing. The projects typically require 2 sessions (around 4 hours) to complete the lesson.
Mosaic Glass art is created by cutting or breaking art glass, gluing to a pattern that is placed on a frame or other base. The next steps are grouting the project, drying, and polishing. These projects are typically 2-hour classes and require 2 sessions to complete the lesson.
Glass flameworking, or lampworking or torchworking, is a technique of manipulating and shaping glass using a specialized torch. This method has been used for centuries to create intricate glass objects, beads, sculptures, and more.
