Workshops - Fall 2011

Introduction to Strip Method Fusing

Saturday, October 1       10 AM - 5 PM

 Sunday, October 2         10 AM - 5 PM


This two-day workshop provides an intensive overview of Strip Method fusing, including design concept, glass selection, strip cutting, pattern layup, firing schedules, and coldworking techniques.  Various types of coldworking are covered – sawing, grinding, polishing, sandblasting, acid etching – including both the use of power tools and manual techniques.  The goal of the workshop is to examine and practice each step of the process, not to create finished pieces.  Prior glass cutting/fusing experience is helpful but not necessary.
Class limit – 4 students.
