Glass Boil- $60 December 6th, Saturdays, 2 weeks, 10:30-12:30
You’ve seen our glass boiled door knobs in the shop and we are
finally ready to offer this as a class. We’ll provide the forms and the firings
and students will be filling the forms and letting the magic happen. The second
week each student will have a disc of boiled glass that we’ll show how to cut
into cabishons, dishes, tiles and of course, knobs. This is a great class for
using up fusible scrap but there is no experience needed.
Paint & Wire Wrapped Pendants- $45 December 10th, Wednesdays, 2
If you missed our last pendant technique and wire wrapping class
you can make it up to us by trying out this one. The first week will involve
getting a little messy with the fusing paints and being a little creative with
designs. The second week we’ll be cutting up and wrapping the glass fired from
the first week. This is a great class to make sets of jewelry or a pile of
necklaces for gifts. No experience needed.

All you need for this class is a pair of tweezers and a sheet of
glass. We’ll teach you how to cut consistent skinny strips and how to assemble
them on individual shelves to end with surprisingly strong fused snowflakes to
hang in the window or on a tree. Each student will have space to make 2 complete
snowflakes and we’ve got a variety of patterns to choose from. Why not squeeze
one more class in before the gift giving season is over? No experience needed
