Explore 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 Glass Mosaic. Make sure to bring extra water for when it gets hot in the workshop!
This camp will also 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.
Classes capped at 8 students.
