Melting glass is so much fun! Cut brilliant colored pieces of sparkling glass and combine them with stringers, noodles, and confetti. Your creations will be fired in a kiln, melting the glass into beautiful sun catchers. Simple wire working will be covered to hang your pieces. Due to firing and annealing times, your finished pieces can be picked up or sent to you. You will be able to make 1 large 6×6 inch piece or several smaller pieces. Finished examples and creative ideas will be available. Glass technology, safety, glass cutting, and equipment will be covered. We will be using System 96 Glass/COE 96.

In the second class, you will cold work the glass by cutting and shaping the glass into pendants. The pieces will be fired a second time to fire polish the glass into the finished pendants.
