Kiln Forming 1: Fusing and Slumping (4 session workshops)
This four-week class is an excellent overview to the world of kiln formed glass. Kiln forming is a process by which glass is assembled, put into a kiln, and heated in a controlled manner to achieve a wide range of effects. There will be discussions about kiln forming theory, color theory, design, and pattern. You will learn how to cut straight lines, curves, and circles. The exercises will cover kiln carving, fusing, slumping, some painterly effects, and how to cut straight lines, curves, and circles. Students will end the class with many study pieces and two finished pieces, which bring the techniques learned together. Demonstrations and class discussions will alternate with plenty of hands-on work time. No experience necessary.
