New: Fuse-from-home kits for kids and adults!
Try this fun, creative activity where you and your kids are the artists for the day! Designs are up to you, we provide the supplies and a few ideas to get you started. You can check out a kit with all the supplies to take home. All supplies are sanitized before and after return.
Please call or e-mail the studio to reserve a kit and we will prepare it for speedy pickup. Please specify how many clear blanks you desire, their sizes and any other special requests. Each project is based on size and samples can be found below.
Create the artwork in the comfort of your own home, then bring it back for us to fire. We recommend placing the unfired projects in a small box on top of a towel for easy transport and the least disruption to the designs. In one week you can pick up the finished projects.
The rental fee for a kit is $5 with a deposit of $25. When the tools and extra supplies are returned, $20 will be refunded. Check-out time is 1 week. 50% deposit refund after 7 days.
Walk-in Projects – $6 to $50
- Available any time the studio is open!
- No prior class or experience required.
- No registration required – just drop in and pick a project to make.
(If you have a group of four or more, please contact the studio ahead of time to arrange a space with us. We want to be sure we have plenty of space to accommodate you!)
- All ages! Kids and adults are welcome (kids under 8 must be accompanied by an adult.)
Walk-in projects are a great way to get started in glass, and get familiar with some of the different tools, techniques, and types of glass fused-glass artists use. They’re also just a really fun way to kill an hour or two!
You’ll get to choose your project from a whole “menu” of sizes and shapes (see full range below), and you’ll be given a piece of clear “canvas” glass to decorate on. Your instructor will give a brief how-to demonstration, and explain some different methods for decorating with your own design, and then turn you and your imagination loose!
Completed projects will be left for firing and will be available for pick-up in one week.
Fusions is a great place to hold group make-in sessions. Birthday parties, team building, family groups, senior groups, school groups, scouts, ladies night out, date night … just about any group of people looking to do something fun together.
Options for Groups:
1 – Walk-in Projects ($5 – $50 per person) are always available for any size group. Some groups, such as birthday parties or team-building groups, choose to set the budget per person and everyone makes the same priced item. Other groups, such as ladies night out or family groups where individuals are each paying separately, are able to let each individual choose their own budget and project during their time at the studio. If your group is larger than 4 people, please email FusionsGlassStudio@gmail.com or call 208-938-1055 and let us know when you’re coming.
2 – Guided Project Group Sessions ($40 to $130 per person) are by appointment and everyone in the group makes the same project. Guided projects are more advanced than walk-in projects so are conducted like a class in which the participants are shown step-by-step how to make the project. Head over to our Guided Projects page to see what’s new!
Note: There is no additional fee for group sessions during regular studio hours. Group Sessions during closed hours are available at an additional $50 fee.
3 – Private Party Events. Fusions is a great place to hold larger, private parties as well! The facility is unique and flexible enough for a variety of functions. If you are interested in our facilities for a larger, private function just give us a call to discuss.
