This one-day session concentrates on the basics of fused glass. The day begins with general instruction followed by a practice session on cutting techniques. After a lunch break, participants will create an 8" square glass bowl/plate based on their own design and color scheme. Over the next week, student projects will be fired by the instructor. Students will then receive an email notification that their art glass is available for pick-up at the studio.

Intro to Fusing I - The Basics is ideal for beginners as well as new glass fusers who want to improve upon or brush up on their skills and understanding of kilnforming. No experience necessary! All tools and materials are provided for this workshop.
