In this 2 day intermediate class (suitable the beginning glass fuser) you will get an introduction into embossing glass as well as an introduction into the world of glass fusing. In no time, you’ll become a glass fuser!
The process goes like this: The pieces will be fired overnight in my studio and returned for wire wrapping and decorating the next day.
The result? A completed Garden Spinner perfect for hanging on a porch or in the garden where even the slightest breeze will make it spin.
