This season’s projects

Whether exploring a new technique, refreshing skills, or sampling the wonders of glass, this season is inspired by light.

During this time, we have discovered the wellness benefits of connectivity, learning, and creativity. Learn best practices on Zoom and work at home at your own pace.

  • Course | A424ZL | Zoom | Fusing technique: Northern lights box (January 21 and 28, 2021)

    Tis the season for lights—the great Aurora borealis that is! Celebrate and capture these stunning natural northern light disturbances using your Gemini Taurus 3 Ring Saw and glass kiln. This two-session Zoom-lead course will cover the proper use and maintenance of the Taurus 3 Ring Saw and how to make “next level” frittage to create this dynamic ten-inch by ten-inch fused glass Aurora borealis landscape. For the first session, bring a selection of your favourite northern lights photos for pattern creation or use the sample pattern provided. The finished piece will be mounted on a twelve-inch square LED wall mount light box. Wiring for wall mount application will also be demonstrated. Gain the confidence to safely use your Taurus 3 Ring Saw and add a level of intricacy to your own glass projects.
