Four days of fun with glass and kilns!! What could be better?
Come create fusion inclusions for your mosaics. This is not a mosaic class, no mosaic will be created, only elements to include in your mosaic projects.
We will pull vitirograph for everyone to use.
Thursday, Friday and Saturday we will run the kilns full of you daily creations. Every student will be able to fill at least a 12 x 12 shelf daily. Supplies are not unlimited, each student will leave with around 5 lbs of fused projects, depending on size and items created.
