10/13/16 News: Changes are happening in the glass industry forcing two major manufacturers to close their factories which, in turn, is forcing my local supplier (and teacher/mentor), Joe Ring, to close his retail supply business. Also, my materials costs have increased about 15% and now I’m in the process of finding a new wholesale supplier which could mean more increases.
Glass Fusing Fun – Connie Beckers, Instructor
Ongoing Thursdays (7-10pm) & Saturdays (10-1pm or 3-6pm), this is the one that started it all and is the one beginners and folks with a Groupon will sign-up for. No glass experience required, this workshop is designed to offer a very basic introduction into glass fusing. You will start with pre-cut “blank” pieces of fusible glass and have up to three hours to create your choice of plates, coasters, soap dishes or trinkets using colorful shapes from my scrap bins to complete your designs. You’ll get a little glass cutting and nipping instruction to form your shapes and learn all about the kilns and what it takes to become The Goddess of Glass. This class is suitable for children age 8 and up accompanied by a paid adult.
