  • A416 | Advanced fusing: A sampling of advanced techniques (November 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, 2017)

    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.

    Thursdays, November 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, 2017, from 7–10 pm

    Fee: $395 + HST (includes 96 COE glass, accessories, and firings)
