About the course
Learn how to make beautiful and creative fused glass art using bottle glass, molds and a kiln. Bottle glass is an inexpensive alternative to art glass that is also great for the environment. This course will take you through the absolute basics, including what tools you'll need, all the way through multiple, increasingly complex projects.
In this course we will cover making fused glass art from whole bottles, two ways to cut bottles, how to make sheets of glass from cut bottles, fused donuts, fused bottle bottom molds with embellishments, kiln formed recycled glass beads and jewelry, Fuse and Fold animals-including two exclusive designs available only through this course. We will also explore how firing schedules work, what is happening at each stage and how to adjust your firing schedule. We will spend time reviewing common glass fusing problems and how to solve them.
