Explore the art of using a kiln to fuse together pieces of glass. Find out about glass choices, preparation, cutting, and composition. Then experiment with the materials and apply your own style and creative ideas as you learn how to use a variety of fusing and slumping techniques, how to use a kiln, and what you need to know about firing programs, annealing times, and recordkeeping. Materials fee $100 for new students and $30 for returning students at class covers first few projects. Plan to spend an additional $100 (or more, depending on the size and complexity of the work you wish to design) during a class field trip (to be arranged) to learn about, choose, and purchase additional materials for the remainder of the course. As this class is in high demand with limited seating, all registrations are final, and NO REFUNDS, CREDITS, or TRANSFERS will be given.
