Fused Glass Class

Last week I had two of my favorite students ask to make some casted hearts. Since I have a minimum of three students, we invited two of my friends who have wanted to take a class, to take the class too. Here are some pictures of the class setup. I also had lots of supplies for them, including casting molds and examples of what they could make.

As always, I had the liability forms out as well as options for their free gift which were pocket hearts.

As always, I have all my rooms cleaned-up and ready for my students. The first row is my finishing room, my screen-printing room, and my gallery area. Having all these rooms set up helps the students see how many options there are and how much time / effort goes into my fused glass artwork. Which really paid off because Linda and Lona (sisters) didn’t know what they wanted to make. Additionally, the gallery gives students options to purchase my glass artwork. BTW even if you aren’t a student and I’m scheduled for a class you are free to email me and set up a time to come by and purchase glass artwork.

Here is Linda creating her glass artwork she used my strip cutter, and both my grinders. She did a great job, and it was her first time making fused glass.

Here are pictures of Glenda and Brenda (sisters) creating their casted hearts. This was their first-time casting glass.

Here is Lona casting a bear and creating a flower vase magnet. It was her first time and she got to use the grinder as well.

Lona made a flower vase and bear magnet. I told her that her bear might break she’s like why. I told her it’s because I like it a lot. I love bears and sunflowers so I might have to make one for me. Linda’s are the second row of pictures; she made a flower magnet and a night light. I love all four pieces they both did a fabulous job.

Here are Glenda and Brenda’s pocket hearts. I think they turned out beautifully. I really do like the pocket hearts. In addition to pocket hearts, they can be put in little stands as artwork.

I know what you are thinking, did I make anything? Yes, I made a couple more pocket hearts; two flowers and the other one is meant to be a beach scene – I may add something to it maybe a turtle or seahorse. The picture on the far right is the table after we were done – I like how messy it is – it shows we had a blast.

I love that there were two sets of sisters, So much fun! Please let me know (elegantfusedglass@gmail.com) if you have any questions or would like to have a private fused glass class all you need is 3 people to create a class (maximum of 5).
