Hot Glass Sampler: July 13-17; 9:30-3:00
AM: Hot torch beads, fused glass & glass blowing Explore the some of the cool things you can make when working with melted glass! This sampler class will teach you how to create pendants and art tiles from fused glass (adhering and melting glass in kiln). Next you’ll create beads and small sculptures while learning “lampworking”, a technique of melting glass over flames. Finally, you will try your hand in a day of glass blowing, creating your own stamped pendants.
PM: Mosaics & Stained Glass This camp will teach you how to create stained glass and mosaic glass works of art. You’ll first create a whimsical mosaic mirror that can adorn your wall at home while learning about design, glass adhesion and grouting. Finally, you’ll learn how to create a prismatic stained glass sun catcher while designing and learning how to cut, copper foil and solder pieces together. Finally, create a collection of mini mosaics and tiny stained glass sun catcher sot sell at the Creative Kids Artist Market at the end of the Summer.
Classes capped at 14 students.
