Bright and colorful, fused glass is a hot fashion item. Learn to create objects from glass, using high temperature firing in a kiln to fuse, slump, and finish glass. Learn techniques of basic glass cutting and shaping, design of jewelry, and kiln firing. Using findings and cords, assemble your glass pieces to create unique and beautiful jewelry, key rings, magnets and suncatchers. Ghost Ranch has all the basic tools and all of the consumable supplies that you will need for the week. The cost of these is included in your registration fee. Additional specialty supplies for more advanced projects or to continue your new hobby at home will be available for purchase from your instructor. This is a perfect class for beginners, students with limited prior experience, and serious minded youths (12 years minimum age). Experienced glass fusers will find plenty of techniques and supplies to try something new. Because of limited kiln space and time for firing, we will be working on small jewelry and ornament size projects.
