Glass Fusion: One Day Workshop

$ 45.00

8 to 10 people materials and firings included

This class is an opportunity to make fused glass objects without a lot of technical lectures. No knowledge of glass art is required.  Most projects can be made using the collage method.  This class will include the basics of designing and preparing small projects for fusing and slumping.

One project will be completed, for which materials will be supplied.   These materials include a 10" clear blank, an extensive selection of compatible glass pieces, frit and stringers, plus copper wire, screen and foil.  After the initial firing, the glass blank can be placed on a mold and fired again to slump it into a plate or bowl.  A wide range of mold shapes will be available to choose from, including high-fire plaster.

Making Vitrigraph Stringer: One Day Workshop

$ 55

Class Size: 4 - 6 people Materials included
A vitrigraph kiln is a small kiln usually raised above shoulder level. Inside, there's a crucible full of small pieces of glass. The crucible and the kiln both have a hole in the bottom. When the glass is heated sufficiently to flow, a thin stream of glass flows out of the bottom of the vitrigraph kiln and down toward the floor.

The student is able to manipulate the stream as it cools, creating glass "lines" that can be incorporated as components in other glass work. Each student will keep about a pound of stinger; the stringers can be used for future glass designs, and the rods can be used for making beads. Examples of vitrigraph stringer being made and stringer used in glass designs can be seen on Kowalski's web site.
