Wild Wire to Wearable Fused Glass

2nd Monday of each month from 1:30-4:30 p.m.

Mar. 9, Apr. 13 or May 11 

This is a fun class that starts with a bit of metal forming used between layers of fused glass. We then design and create pendants or earrings. If you choose to work with wire only, that option is fine.
The options of jewelry making with glass and wire are vast. Over 13 years of experimentation I've found some things that work well,and I'd like to share with people interested in glass and jewelry. In this workshop we get right to work forming silver to embed between layers of glass that will be fused in a kiln. Students will have unique handmade glass pendants after firing or forged wire work to take home the day of the workshop,if their interest is working with wire. Small wire sculpture is an option to work on as well.

All materials provided: Fusible glass, silver, copper, brass, gold wire and ear wires. Glass paints and enamels. Murine, crystals, seaweed metal cutouts and more!

  • Adults and children age 7 and up. (Children must be accompanied by a parent) Beginners welcome!

  • Fees: $50.00 each class or $200.00 for 5 classes

  • Class size: 5 - 9 Students
