Class sizes are a fixed number with space available only if you register in advance.
FUSING & SLUMPING GLASS - an introduction- 2 evening - $150.00 - maximum 8 per class
We don't just want you to make a glass art project to take home with you. Instead, we want you to take home the skills to make lots of projects on your own. From the beginning, you'll be introduced to numerous different materials and taught a variety of different techniques. Instead of just learning the way we do it, you'll be free to select the method that best suits your own needs and preferences.
Each individual is unique and works in their own uniquely individual way. Each has their own preference in which tools they like best. Our goal is to provide the options from which you can choose. Our ultimate goal is to have you leave us able to build on the skills you've learned and continue to build beautiful glass art projects.
Instructor Dennis Brady
to be held at DeBrady-Victorian Studio Workshop in Victoria BC
January 17 & 24
6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
More classes will be scheduled as needed.
Taught by a professional glass artisan, this class is for two evenings and is intended to teach the basics of both fusing and slumping glass. It includes the following:
How different glass responds to heat in a kiln
Understanding compatibility and viscosity
Preparing and using a kiln
Creating firing schedules
Maintaining a kiln log
Preparing and using molds
Introduction to casting in a kiln
Each student will create their own project to be fused then later slumped into a mold. All work will be with Spectrum COE 96 glass, but the class will include demonstrations of how other kinds of glass are used. All tools and materials are provided.
Anyone that will want to expand their skills or feel they need help on a difficult project, can either drop in for an Open Workshop, stop into our shop and ask questions of any of our professional staff, or ask questions on our internet bulletin board at: http://www.glasscampus.com/forum
