Glass fusing predates glass blowing, and has been making a resurgence into the craft and art world since the 70’s. With new kilns and a better understanding of how glass, an amazing medium that is fragile, strong, pliable and breakable, works; and how we can manipulate it both hot and cold.
Upcoming dates to be announced Maximum class size 8 students. Ages 16+ Please bring lunch and water.

Working as an apprentice, specific courses at Pilchuck and Corning, as well as self exploration, has slowly allowed her experience in this field to deepen. She has taught all forms of glass work for public and private studios over the past 8 years including Taylor Backes Art School, University of the Arts and Glass Routes. See more on her website.
