Get ready for a fantastic and friendly Glass Fusing workshop designed exclusively for adults and teens! No prior experience or artistic talent is required because we're here to support you every step of the way. Whether you prefer a little guidance or want to let your creativity soar, we've got you covered.
Have a blast as we dive into the world of glass art!
In this exciting class, we'll be focusing on the enchanting realm of Garden Art. We'll create a variety of marvelous pieces such as rectangular garden stakes, flat flower stakes, or delightful 3D flowers. Once we've crafted these masterpieces together, I'll expertly mount them for you, allowing you to showcase them in your garden or potted plants. These stunning creations will infuse vibrant colors into your outdoor space all year round!
Please take note of our three pricing options. First you can explore the realm of flat items with rectangular garden stakes ($45) or flat flower garden stakes ($52) both mounted on copper tubing with stainless steel rods. Alternatively, for $62, you can delve into the magical world of 3D flowers. I'll personally mount your flower on a garden stake. While this option isn't necessarily more challenging for you, it does require additional time and effort on my part, as I'll need to meticulously grind off any burrs and conduct a second firing using a mold.
And that's not all! As always, for $45, you can also Pick Your Project from a delightful selection that includes a Suncatcher, Pendant Necklace, Earrings, Coaster, or Ornament. The possibilities are endless, and the choice is yours!
During our workshop, you'll have the opportunity to create your very own, one-of-a-kind fused glass art. We'll guide you through the process of designing and arranging colorful art glass pieces that will melt together beautifully in our state-of-the-art fiber kiln. But before we dive in, we'll provide you with a basic overview of glass fusing, demonstrate various glass-cutting techniques, emphasize the importance of proper construction, and share some inspiring design ideas. Then, it's time to belly up to the bar—the glass bar, that is! All our workshops feature a glass buffet where you can easily handpick all the components you need to bring your vision to life at your work station.
Once you've arranged and glued your pieces to perfection (with a little input from us, of course), we'll fire them in our kiln. Your unique creation will be ready for pickup in approximately a week. If you can't make it to collect your masterpiece, don't worry! We offer a convenient mailing option for a reasonable shipping and handling fee.
Here's a breakdown of the project options and corresponding fees:
- $45: Pick Your Project from a 4"x4" Suncatcher, a 4"-5", a 2.5"x6" Garden Stake on 12" rod, an approximately 1"x2" Pendant Necklace (includes spsarkling dichroic glass, a silver-plated bail and black satin cord), a 4"x4" Coaster, or two 2"x3"-ish Ornaments.
- $52: 4"-5" diameter flat flower on 15" rod.
- $62: Create a magnificent 3D glass flower, measuring 4"-6" in size, and have it beautifully mounted on a garden stake.
Our workshop consists of a single session lasting around 2-3 hours of pure artistic joy. The fee covers the use of our top-notch tools, grinder, materials required for this project, and one firing.
So, don't miss out on this delightful Glass Fusing experience! Join us and let your imagination run wild while we create dazzling glass art together. Reserve your spot today and get ready for a wonderful journey into the world of fused glass.
