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. A number of 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. Class fee includes all glass and supplies. Please bring your own glass tools.

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 keychain. I use the 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 different mirror systems and different materials to make high quality scopes.  Most of all we'll have fun and learn a craft the whole family will love.

Lab Fee: $100.00
