One-Day Workshop: Sunday, February 16
Course Description: Fused glass Menorahs, Seder and Challah Plates make great presents and family air looms, which will be treasured for years to come. This introductory class will cover kiln forming theory, color application, and a discussion about how Judaic artists have been using kiln formed glass to create these traditional forms. Using precut elements, you will assemble a piece of glass to be fused and then slumped into your chosen form: a Menorah, Seder, or Challah plate. Your pieces will be ready to be picked up one week after the class. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
