Fused Glass Windchime
June 24 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Our fused glass windchime workshop is an wonderful opportunity for you to learn how to create your own fused glass windchime under the guidance of an experienced instructor.
In this 2 hour workshop, students will learn the basics of working with fused glass, such as cutting and shaping the glass, applying frit (finely ground glass), and layering different colors to create a design. They will also learn about proper safety practices when working with the specialized equipment needed for fused glass, such as handtools and grinders.
Our instructors will guide you through the process of planning and composing your windchime design, and will provide tips and techniques for choosing and combining different colors and textures of glass. Once you’ve assembled your windchime, you’ll learn how we properly fire it in a kiln to fuse the glass together. The windchimes will be ready for pick up in about a week, to be strung home.
This workshop is great for beginner glass artists and people who would just like to learn the joys of fused glass.
