2014 Glass Fusing Workshops

September 5-6, 2014
October 18-19, 2014

Learn how to fuse glass at Milkweed Cottage!

Make beautiful glass jewelry, dishes, ornaments and suncatchers during Milkweed Cottage's two-day fusing workshop. This class is perfect for anyone who loves glass and wants to experiment! Great for beginners, I adjust the workshop based on your interests and goals. Something you always wanted to try and make? Let me know and we'll either do it, or I'll get you started in the right direction. The workshop is designed to give you the technical knowledge and skills to create your own fused glass works, and even get your own studio up and running.

The workshop covers:
fusing basics
working with color
the art of transparents and opaques
embedding metal in glass
stringer, frits, powders and pixie dust
dichroic glass techniques
cold-working and finishing
etching and signing your work
kilns and how to set temperatures for different effects
setting up your home studio
glass handling and studio safety
supply and equipment lists with proven, quality suppliers

Workshop runs Saturday and Sunday from 10am-3pm
$240 per person
4 kiln firings
(bring a friend and you can each take 15% off )

Payment in full is due at time of registration. I like to keep the classes small, and this ensures your spot. Cancellation policy: full refund if cancellation occurs at least 30 days prior to workshop; opportunity for rescheduling if cancellation occurs within 30 days of workshop. Cancellations due to weather or illness will be rescheduled.

The studio is located in a skylight loft in quaint Portsmouth, NH. All supplies needed for each workshop are included, just bring a bag lunch and wear comfortable clothing. Helpful things to bring: a sturdy apron, protective eyewear (not tinted), notebook. Only closed-toed shoes can be worn in the studio, and all containers must have lids (no open coffee mugs or beverages without caps).
