A-Z of Fused Glass class for all levels (beginner and up), is a must for glass artists who want to work independently in the BARN Glass Studio. In each session, students will be be introduced to fused glass basics, studio safety, vocabulary, products, compatibility, glass cutting, tools, equipment, slumping molds, how to use the BARN studio, and kiln use and care.

At the completion of the class, participants will leave with
glass 'samplers' and two completed fused glass projects.

This is a three session class held on three consecutive afternoons.

NOTE:  In order to use Open Studio Access or Monitored Open Studio for your own projects, you must demonstrate competency in glass cutting, grinder use, mold prep, and kiln use.  This mandatory course will address those competencies. Due to the idiosyncrasies of the glass studio and our teaching methods & logistics this class is for seasoned artists as well.

There is a materials fee of $85 included in the class price.

Remember to wear close-toed shoes & long pants in the Glass Studio at all times! This is a strictly enforced safety policy. Thank you.

Instructors: Diane Bonciolini, Constance Ducar, & Tobi Strevall

Diane Bonciolini:  The "olini" of Mesolini Glass Studio, Diane's love of 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. She describes glass, her medium of choice, as having 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.

Constance Ducar is relatively new to fusing glass and is a member of the Glass Art Studio Steering Committee.  She is enthusiastic about working with beginning students and encouraging a love for glass.  She is also active in the Fiber Arts Studio.
