Glass Fusion is the process of taking separate colorful pieces of fusible and compatible art glass, layering them on one another into a design, and then "fusing" or melting them in a kiln into one piece. The finished glass can then be left as a panel as an art piece or refired using molds to create a vast variety of shaped objects both useful and decorative.
The glass is available in many colors and patterns so that the option of design and final product are endless. Join us for some "Glass Therapy" by creating something beautiful and unexpected! And it’s so easy, you don’t have to be an artist!
Make bowls, plates, platters, tiles, clocks, coasters, chimes, Christmas ornaments, patio lanterns, sculptures, jewellery, window decor, wall art, treasure boxes, glass blocks, bird feeders, garden art, and many other items for yourself as well as wonderful unique wedding, anniversary, and birthday gifts for others.

Glass 101 can be taken individually or in a group, and will be booked around your schedule. Need to be 18 or older.
Studio Time: Once you have Glass 101 under your belt, you can go on to create your very own masterpiece! We provide all the tools and supplies as well as the technical advice to produce your "only one in the world" piece. We have a great selection of colors, molds and glass accents.
