Fused Glass


A used shower door that was headed for the landfill will be used to create a minimalist item - a trivet.

Learn how to safely shatter the glass and turn the pieces into a functional form. A discussion about other ways to use glass destined for the landfill in fused glass art is part of this class, too.

Bring along a creative and patient mind and a notebook to take notes. The process is described as Zen-like as it is similar to working with a jigsaw puzzle.

Great for beginners interested in exploring the medium of glass.
