In Step 3: Students will learn the basics of fused glass including safety, tools, kinds of glass, and firing schedules. We will practice glass cutting and how to plan your first simple project. This class will cover the various ways that accessory glass – frit and stringers – may be used to design unique fused glass projects.
The Introduction to fused glass class will have 3 steps that can be taken in any order. Basic fused glass topics will be covered in each class but the projects will vary to give an introduction to different techniques commonly used when fusing glass.
After completing the 3 introductory steps you will be ready to take on more challenging projects in the intermediate level classes.
