About the Course

In this two part class, you will learn the basics of both stained and fused glass techniques. Learn proper glass cutting, shaping and soldering techniques to create an original 8x11 stained glass window for your home. We will also introduce you to glass fusing: the technique of heating pieces of compatible glass in a kiln until they are completely fused. We will focus on arranging glass for flat fusing and learn to make a fused glass project, such as jewelry, a frame or magnet. All the materials you need will be included in the cost of the class. No previous glass cutting experience is necessary ? we'll teach you everything you need to know! New students must attend the first class. Must be able to follow directions and safety precautions for cutting and handling glass.
