Glass Fusing Basics I is where it all begins! This class is an introduction to fused glass and is a prerequisite for participating in our open studio time. During the class you will create a 8×8″ dish while you learn all about glass – how to cut, shape and lay up your glass ready to be fired; how to choose the kiln firing schedule to achieve the look you desire; and how the glass itself reacts to having fuse temperature heat applied to it. All tools and supplies are provided.

After having taken this class, you can return to participate in our Open Studio time or continue on to other classes at Fusions Glass Studio.
