Welcome to Glasstronomy Studios’ fall program. These Thursday night courses give you the opportunity to focus on a single project or technique over several weeks. These courses run from 7–10 pm each Thursday evening. On the evenings when a course is in session, the Studio will close at 5 pm and reopen at 6:45 pm.
Welcome to the wonderful world of art glass! During this six-week course, participants will explore the many facets of art glass.
Learn how to safely break and shape glass while creating a stained glass sun catcher that will be copper foiled and soldered.
Explore glass fusing using 96 COE glass and accessories. Participants will learn how to use the mini kilns to create fused glass cabochons. Using glass powder, frit and stringers, participants will also create a 4-inch x 6-inch glass landscape.
Complete the exploration in art glass by creating a traditional 12-inch x 16-inch mosaic mirror.
The skills and best practices learned during this course will enable you to further explore glass in other workshops offered in Studio or on your own.

The beauty of glass fusing comes from the endless creative and different ways one can manipulate glass under heat. During this intensive five-week course, participants will explore techniques using glass impasto, Glassline paint, mica, and frit:
Glass impasto: Create a painterly effect by turning glass powder to paste
Glassline paint: Use this slip-based paint that fires to a glossy finish
Mica: Capture this shiny silicate mineral in glass for a metallic effect
Frit: Create pictures using crushed and pulled glass
Creating a sampler of each technique, participants will then assemble them into a 12-inch x 18-inch fused glass serving tray with a mirror image design. Duraboard drop mould making will also be covered.
