This fun Glass Fusing workshop is for adults and teens and 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 item:
1 standing tree sculpture of medium-sized tree. Main body of the tree will be between 2 and 3" wide and 3"-5" tall plus a 3" stem.
Students will create their very own one-of-a-kind beautiful fused glass art by designing and arranging pieces of colorful art glass that we melt together in our state of the art fiber kiln.
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, and ours, we will fire it in our kiln, 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 reasonable shipping and handling fee.
This project is for:
1 kiln-formed glass tree. After class, instructor will fire your tree in our kiln. After firing, instructor will sand/grind off any burrs and then mount to a "trunk" made of sustainably harvested, locally sourced tree limb.
1 session, 2 hours
Fee includes use of our tools, grinder, materials for this project & one firing
