This A-Z of Fusing Glass workshop is a must for 

 (1) beginning, intermediate, and advanced fused glass artists who want to use Open Studio time to work on independent glass projects, or

(2) beginning and intermediate fused glass artists who want an overview or refresher of the entire fused glass process.   

Both types of participants will become familiar with the studio space, available supplies, and equipment.

In each three-hour workshop session, participants will learn glass studio safety, glass vocabulary, types of glass products, glass compatibility, cutting glass, using glass tools and equipment, glass design, use of papers and paints, how to use the Open Studio, kiln use and care, and slumping mold use and care.

At the completion of the class, participants will leave with three completed fused glass projects: a mirror, a set of coasters, and a bowl.  Most importantly, they will leave with the knowledge of glass fusing from start to finish. 

NOTE:  In order to use Open Studio time for your own projects, you must demonstrate competency in glass cutting, grinder use, mold prep, and kiln use.  This course will address those competencies.

Instructors: Diane Bonciolini is the "olini" of Mesolini Glass Studio, and glass is her passion.   As a full-time glass artist who has lived and worked on Bainbridge Island since 1977, she grows and changes with every project. Glass, her medium of choice, has a life of its own.  This multifaceted medium shows itself in each of her creations:  stained glass, slumped and fused glass, lamp work, or glass combined with concrete. 
Carol Baker’s introduction to glass art began with stained glass mosaics while she was living in Virginia in 2005.  After completing many mosaic projects and looking for a creative challenge, she purchased her first kiln and Lazy Dog Glass Studio was born.  Carol has always appreciated a more functional form of art and strives to create beautiful  pieces that can be enjoyed in everyday life. In 2012, she relocated to Bainbridge Island where she continues to study fused glass and to advance her knowledge of the intricacies of warm glass art.
Teri Smith has worked with fused glass for over ten years, selling individual pieces, designing commission artwork, giving gifts, or decorating her own home.   Having joined BARN, Teri also enjoys taking jewelry classes and has written a published comic romantic mystery, Affection for Crime.

All instructors are working artists on the Island.
