Introduction to Glass Fusing and Slumping


This one-day program introduces students to the visual and elemental properties of glass. The raw materials come in sheet, rod, crumbled and powdered glass and through a variety of techniques can be turned into elements for sculpture and jewelry. Glass fusing is the binding of two or more pieces of compatible glass with heat. At temperatures of 1500 to 1700 the pieces merge together to form one piece of glass. In this course, students are provided with the materials and instruction needed to slip into this most seductive art form. This course is all about having fun while making some cool glass works at the same time. Led by a professional glass artist in an informal workshop atmosphere where you can learn as much about the medium, process, and equipment as you wish. Handouts and demonstrations are provided for those interested in setting up their own studios.

Prerequisite: None

First class materials: $25 lab fee covers the cost of materials and firing for class project. (Projects will be fired at instructor’s studio and returned to students via mail.)
