Glass fusing is an art form that dates back to the ancient Egyptians and Romans. Today glass fusing techniques have evolved into a modern art enjoyed by many.


We’ll explore the properties of fusible glass which will aid you in achieving different effects. To fuse glass, pieces of glass are stacked in layers, then fired in a kiln at very high temperatures to melt the pieces together. 


In our workshops, you will learn how to cut, shape and arrange pieces of glass to make original stunning designs, such as breathtaking pendants and earrings, glowing sun catchers and other beautiful pieces.
