Introduction to Fused Screen Printing
with Tony Glander


Saturday, April 25th  10am - 4pm - $225

Class is Full!  Call for Wait List!

One of the most popular section of Tony's Intro to Fusing class is the screenprinting portion.  Each class we have had, students ask us if we would do a class specifically on that subject.  Yes we can!  Screenprinting is a great way to add text, designs, and even photos to fuseed art.  We’ll cover types of paint to use, how to create a screen, how to use the screen to apply the image to your glass, and tips on how to create your own screen jig!  Each students goes home with a screen with an image on it, and 2 Fused plates.
