    Days may be shortening, but there's always time to prepare your garden for the growing season - or create the perfect gift for your gardening friends. Fused Glass Garden Tiles is a super easy, skill building class where you will practice straight glass cutting for 4 small tiles. We will cover basic glass construction, and management of volume. Working with Opaque colors and pre-cuts makes this an easy project. We will also discuss other techniques and ideas for Garden tiles, as well as learn the sturdiest method for displaying this outdoors.

    You will cut and assemble your 4 tiles on October 21st, which will then be full fused. When you return on October 28th, we will decorate the tiles with pre-cut shapes and then the tiles will be tack fused. You can return to pick up finished work on a date & time to be determined with your instructor.

    Learn the basic features of LightBurn, essential software that controls both of our new laser machines. This is the software you'll use whether you are quickly cutting out some parts for your project or are fine tuning your complex etching. LightBurn software replaces RetinaEngrave you may have used previously.

    This class will get you started and will help you implement your own creative laser designs. This class is not a substitute for "Intro to the Laser Cutter".

    Who should take this class?

    If you took "Intro to the Laser Cutter" on the Full Spectrum Laser, this class can get you up and running with our new laser cutters. If you've taken "Intro to the Laser Cutter" on the new lasers and are ready to see how to get more from LightBurn, this class is for you. If you used Inkscape and RetinaEngrave with the FSL and didn't like the software, this class is for you. If you loved using Inkscape and RetinaEngrave, you'll learn how LightBurn fits into your workflow.

    The class covers the basics of LightBurn in the laser cutter workflow. It also covers setting laser parameters for cutting and engraving, importing your designs, vector graphics (line art) vs raster graphics (pixel art), manipulating shapes and tuning images, using the laser libraries, and previewing your work.


    Prerequisite: Laser 101: Intro to Laser Cutter Operations

    Class size is limited to 6.

    Make a stunning 10” plate/platter using pebbles and geometric shapes. This is a Skills Building Project Class where you will practice straight glass cuts, learn to make pebbles and use kiln schedules to add details to your art pieces. This class is designed for beginners who would like to become more familiar with design elements, assembly steps and kiln options.

    On day 1, you will lay out your platter design, prepare your pebbles for firing, cut your glass and begin your assembly. On day 2, you will harvest your pebbles and complete your platter assembly which will first be contour fused and then slumped into a gentle swoop mold. Completed projects will be ready approximately 72 hours after day 2 and will be on display in the glass cabinet outside of the glass studio. Your platters may be picked up the following Saturday morning. The instructor will be available for project review and any questions.

    Class Dates: Saturday, October 23, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm and Sunday, October 24 from 1-4pm. 
    Project review and pick-up: October 30th between 10-11am.
