Intro to Fusing

July 14th, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Tara Traister |

In this introductory fusing lesson, students will learn all of the steps to transform flat sheet glass into your own personal designs. This lesson will start with the basics of glass cutting, grinding, and learning how to design a pattern with glass. Students will also be able to embellish work with glass called stringers and various types of frit. At the end of the lesson students will place their pieces in kilns and select specific temperatures to create the texture they desire. 

What to Expect: Students will create 1 or 2 fused pieces of their own simple design, under 5” in any direction. Read more about how to prepare for class on our Registration Info page. 

Eligibility: No previous experience required. Open to ages 12 and up.

Pick-up: The glass needs to be fused in the kiln and cool down overnight, so the students will have to return to UrbanGlass once notified to pick up their work. 

This is an in-person class taking place on-site at UrbanGlass. Health and safety guidelines will be emailed to you upon registration.
