Fused Glass: Molds
This class will expose the absolute beginner to working with glass. Learning basic cutting, layering, firing and finishing of several small pieces, one should expect to leave the class after day 2 with a small cast piece, and several pieces made from sheet glass. Handouts will include technique information, a tool list for future work with the medium, a list of vendors to purchase glass from, both locally and online, and technical information on firing schedules. There will be discussion about how a kiln works, and how to make decisions regarding firing.
This is an approximately 2 1/2 hour class. Pieces created can be picked up within a few days of firing.Instructor: Ellen Preston
