Join us in June on some new days for glass fusing in the Fusers at Work studio times - and for some great new Kids' Crafts Workshops! These additional days and classes have been added on a trial basis for June. If class attendance is popular, we'll keep them comin' through the summer. Remember ...
  • You must make your reservations for "Fusers at Work" at least one day in advance! Otherwise you may show up and find the studio closed!
  • All children attending the "Kids' Crafts" workshops must be accompanied by an adult!
  • Pre-registration and Pre-Payment for all workshops is required. A minimum of four students is required for reach workshop, so invite others to join you to make sure the class can be held!


Designed for those new to glass fusing. Class covers an explanation of what glass fusing is, types of glass used for fusing, basics of cutting glass and using glass tools - including some power tools, and illustrations of different kiln firing results. Students will create up to four different projects depending on time. Class fee: $75, covers all materials, kiln firing, use of equipment and education.

A different project each week, simplified for children with pre-cut pieces, shapes and materials. Each child must be accompanied an adult. Class fee: $25, covers all materials, kiln firing and use of equipment.

GOOM (Garden Object of the Month) - GARDEN GLOBES:
Each month GOOM participants create a different project for their home garden. This month we will be creating Mosaic Garden Globes out of bowling balls!
You may provide your own mosaic tesserae (pieces of tile, stone, china, mirror, or other found objects to cover approximately 2 square feet of surface area) or you may purchase these at the studio. If you plan to purchase these at the studio, you must order and prepay for them at least TWO WEEKS in advance of the class! Bowling balls will be provided (for up to 10 people only), or you may provide your own.
Please come prepared with mosaic design ideas for your Garden Globe. There are a lot of books at the library for inspiration, or create something out of your imagination!
Extra time is allowed for this special workshop to give you time to work. If you need more time, you can finish your project at home, or are welcome to attend a Fusers at Work studio time for no additional fee. Healthy snacks will be provided if you don't have time to eat dinner before you come right after work!
Class fee: $35, covers use of tools and equipment, supplies (such as adhesives) and education. All design materials/tesserae purchased at the studio will incur additional fees. Some Garden Globe stands are available for purchase at the studio, or you may provide your own.

Fusers at Work Studio Times are made available for students who already have basic glass fusing skills to create any project of their choosing. You may use all the tools and equipment, some supplies (such as adhesives and cleaning products), reference materials and studio space for a $10.00 fee per visit. Glass materials can be purchased from the studio, and kiln firings will incur additional fees.
