Raised Relief Fused Plate Class

with Laurie Hartman


Thursday, July 24th  6:00pm - 8:30pm - $60

I know it sounds like we are raising money for disaster relief, but we are actually creating a really unique type of fused plate!  Learn to use ceramic fiber papers to create depth and imagery in your fused glass. Create texture, relief, and surface effects.  You can keep it simple or make it as detailed as you like. The fiber paper can be decorated with frit to add color to your designs.  Then we slump the plate for you to pick up at your convenience!  You will feel a lot of relief after taking this class!

Cutting and Soldering Workshop

Saturday, July 26th

Cutting from 10am - 12pm

Soldering from 1pm - 3pm

$20 per session
Take both for only $35

Two of the basic skills needed to be a successful stained glass artist are the ability to cut and to solder.  If you have troubles with them, the whole project can be frustrating!  In two hours we can teach you to be a better cutter or solderer.  You will leave with a better understanding of how it works and a knowledge of techniques that make is simpler.  Please bring your tools so we can teach you how they work.

For the cutting workshop, please bring your challenging cuts and patterns.  For the soldering workshop, please bring something to solder.  If you take both workshops, what you cut in the morning, you can solder in the afternoon!
