Frit Control & Manipulation
Prerequisite: Beginning Fusing & Slumping Class
Students will make one fused glass piece, designed for display in an upright acrylic stand. Jennifer will show you how to layer frit, confetti, stringers to create complex imagery and depth. Students should bring in design ideas from photographs or drawings, scaled to size. Best subjects are nature scenes, such as desert landscapes with close up views of flower blossoms. Discuss your design ideas with Jennifer prior to signing up for class. We have several designs you may choose from such as Saguaro Blossoms, Butterfly & Flower, and Yucca Desert Scene. There will be homework outside of class; the amount depends upon the complexity of your design.
Come in at least 3-4 days prior to class start date to select design and frit colors, and to allow time for us to cut your base and border glass.
Class Fee: $189 plus supplies*
