Classes are planned for Oct. 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30 at The Dalles Art Center, from 6 to 9 p.m.
No experience is necessary. Beginners will make a series of sample tiles, holiday ornaments and jewelry learning the differences between full (flat) and tack (textured) fused tiles. Students will work with dichroic glass, inclusions, textured glass and more.
A small, functional bowl, vase or plate will be developed for a final project.
Learn the basics of glass cutting, placement and firing while receiving extensive information on the technical aspects of kilnwork, safety and studio set-up.
The returning student can participate in weekly assignments or develop their own course of study based on level of experience and pre-planning with the instructor.
Students should bring safety glasses, wear closed-toed shoes for safety, and bring any glass working tools they may have along with a sketch pad or note pad and pencil and pen.
