Class is Full!  Please call for wait list.
 
Everything you wanted to know on how to start fusing glass and weren't afraid to ask!
In this Beginner Fusing Class, we cover all the basics like cutting, melting, slumping, casting and annealing fusible glass.  We will discuss how different types of glass react to heat and how they interact with each other.  You will learn of Coefficient of Expansion (COE) and how to use stringers and frit. We will cover all of the important safety factors and most importantly we will discuss firing schedules as well as how to operate a kiln - because that is where the magic happens!  This class is focused on how to work with fusing glass and the pitfalls that you might step into so make sure to bring your questions.

Instructor Bio
Linn was been fusing for more years than we can count and has been teaching fusing techniques for over 5 years.  Dave is the guy you find milling about our warehouse moving crates.  He loves to make fused bears and skulls, but he is a master at explaining what NOT to do when fusing.
