About the Event
This fun Glass Fusing workshop does not require any experience or artistic talent. We will help guide you as much or as little as you like. All materials needed to make one 3”x 8” art glass garden stake are included.
Students will create their very own one-of-a-kind beautiful fused glass garden stake by designing and arranging pieces of colorful art glass.
We’ll start off by giving you a basic overview of glass fusing, show you a variety of ways to cut glass, explain the importance of proper construction, display some design ideas and then you get to belly up to the bar, the glass bar, that is. All RiverFire Glass fusing workshops feature our glass buffet at which you can easily pick out all your components to bring back to your work station.
After your piece is arranged and glued to your satisfaction, we will guide you through creating the copper pipe mounting system and cutting the steel bar stake.
We will then fire it in our kiln, attach your copper tube backing with marine grade epoxy and your unique piece will be ready to pick up in about a week. If you cannot pick up your piece, we can mail it to you for a small shipping fee.
This project is for one fused glass garden stake approximately 8”tall x 3“ wide on a 16” 1/4” steel bar.
1 session, 2 hours
Fee includes use of our tools, grinder, materials for this project & one firing
