Glass Fusing I - Renee Kelley
Once again, I’m back to teach a fun-filled glass fusing class! This class is great for both beginners and intermediate students. We will go over safety factors, types of glass including what works well together and what doesn’t, (COE), how to cut glass and information about kilns and kiln temperatures. Once the important stuff is out of the way, be prepared to dive right into making your first project! We will also be making my “Ice Pendant” and do a simple 2-minute wire wrap on it. Other projects include kits for pendants, earrings and a home accessory project. You will be busy during the class so bring your creative juices and let’s go! My lab fee includes all glass, frit, noodles, kiln paper, findings and use of my tools. I will have additional kits and glass for sale.

Glass Fusing II - Julia Larson
This is not a beginning class. Glass cutting will not be taught. Students are expected to have a basic understanding of glass cutting, glass fusing and kiln functions. This class will focus on some more advanced fusing and design techniques, including creating original and unique glass; layering dichroic glass and decals; and using everyday objects to achieve special effects. Several projects will be created; however, the class is not primarily a “production” class. New projects are added each year, so you will not be bored if you have previously taken this class. The class fee is $130, which includes all glass and supplies. Please bring your own glass tools.

Lab Fee: $130.00
Estimated Materials Cost: $0+
Prerequisites: Glass cutting/glass fusing experience. Basic kiln function knowledge

Kaleidoscopes - Mitzi Boyd
Kaleidoscopes-Creating Magic. In this class you will learn the exterior and interior construction of a scope by making one out of PVC pipe. Second, we will use a 5x7 picture {that you bring} to make an acrylic memory scope. The end will contain crystals of birthstones or small objects that have sweet memories. Third, we will make a brass scope with a liquid filled wand at the end. Last, if time permits, we will make a small 2 ½” scope that can be made into a necklace or key chain. I use front surface mirror and magnifying lens to show the clarity of the beautiful magic you have created.  Basic knowledge of glass cutting and soldering is useful, but I will help you learn this. We will discuss differ mirror system and differ material to make high quality scopes.  Most of all we will have fun and learn a craft the whole family will love. 

Lab Fee: $100.00

Stained Glass I - Alfred Taylor
This class will introduce you to foil techniques for creating stained glass. We will discuss the differences between glasses, foils, leads, channel and patinas and explain what tools we use and their purposes. Before we begin making any projects, we will practice scoring and breaking glass. This will give us a chance to try different cutters to see what works best for you. After that, we will be making a small sun catcher from beginning to end. We will make the pattern, transfer it to the glass, score, break, and grind and foil the glass, solder the pieces together and finish the piece by cleaning and polishing it. The next projects will increase in difficulty as we build up the size and number of pieces from the sun catcher; culminating in the manufacture of a larger panel, a kaleidoscope and finally a 4-D Angel. Lab fee covers all materials needed to complete basic projects including glass, solder, lead, marbles, mirrors, foil and edging material, as well as patterns and instructions for each project. Additional materials will be available for purchase.

Lab Fee: $100.00
