Introduction to Glass Fusing
The technique of glass fusing dates back to ancient Egypt and Rome. It is the binding of two or more pieces of compatible glass with heat. Through a variety of techniques, glass fusing can create pieces for jewelry and art. This one-day workshop introduces students to the visual and elemental properties of glass. Students are instructed how to use basic glass-cutting tools to create a variety of organic as well as geometric shapes. Students select from a wide array of fused glass colors and dichroic glass to explore this versatile medium, creating several pieces that could be used as pendants, brooches, earrings, or cabochons.
Tuition fee includes glass fusing materials purchased by the instructor for the workshop. Loaner glass cutting tools will also be provided.
