Classes

Interested in learning about Kiln-Formed glass? Take a class!!

Kiln-formed glass or fused glass is a technique that consists of cutting glass into desired shapes, pieces are put together and placed in a kiln, and heated so the glass melts or fuses together. The fusing process takes approximately 14 hours from the time the program starts until the glass is cool enough to handle.  If a bowl or other shape is desired, the original piece is put back in the kiln, then refired over an object (usually stainless steel bowls) letting the glass relax into or over the mold. This is called slumping or draping.

All projects are ready for pick up 1-2 days after class.

For safety reasons, closed toed shoes must be worn during class.
