Age: 18 and older
Instructor: Bea North
Thursdays, September 13, 20, 27 | 6:30-8:30 pm $75 Members | $100 Non-members
If you have often admired fused glass work and would like to know how to cut, shape and assemble fusible glass, this class is for you! We will learn about the properties of glass, how to cut glass safely and accurately, and how to assemble pieces for best results. We will also learn how to incorporate accessory materials, such as glass frit, stringers, dichroic glass to create decorative effects and detail. Our projects will include a trivet or dish, pendants, and a larger decorative piece. Students will start with a kit of supplies, but may wish to purchase additional glass for the final project. We will discuss choosing compatible glass at the first class. The Mansfield Art Center classes only use 90 C.O.E. glass (Bullseye) in order to avoid firing mishaps.
