This one weekend three-day class will introduce the student to the basic concepts and skills needed for fusing glass tableware and jewelry.
The student will complete two fused plates and one glass pendant in the class that will give him or her an introduction to the principles of full fuse, tack fuse, bending, compatibility, devitrification, annealing and volume control. There will also be a number of demonstration lecture periods dealing with firing schedules, trouble shooting the most common problems like bubbles and setting up your kiln for in-home studio operation.
This is a very comprehensive class that will provide a large amount of handout materials for the student to use for future reference after the class.
No previous glass work experience is needed for this class, but the student will need to provide a glass cutter, running pliers and breaking pliers.
J Ring Glass provides firing services for students who have completed this class.
