This is a 2 week class where you will finish one slumped piece using a technique like the bowl shown here, and one fused piece of glass. Tools/supplies are required. A discount on the class fee is available if you purchase tools from me. A 10% discount on all tools and supplies is available during class periods or when purchased at the time you sign up for a class. Required tools for a beginning student include: Glass Cutter, Running Pliers, Breaker Pliers, Safety Glasses. Those tools can be found below on this page. Cotton clothes work best and gloves (cotton or rubber) are an option. Class sizes are limited and may include students working on projects different than yours.

After taking a beginning fusing and slumping class you WILL BE very anxious to move on to other projects. You can continue to take fusing/slumping sessions picking projects of your choice and pay for the classes on a day by day basis. Or, you may want to try taking a sandblasting class to enhance your options when creating new designs. Projects in advanced classes can include anything from vases, bowls, and plates, to creatively designed embellishments for a stained glass panel. Your options are unlimited the more techiques you learn.

In advanced fusing/slumping classes you can come in with a design of your own and get guidance about how to approach it, what techniques work best, what glass to select, etc.

What a great gift for the "crafter" in your life who is looking for a stimulating experience. Enjoy!

If you are trying to decide where to spend money when purchasing your initial stained glass tools, I feel a good cutter is worth the money spent. You can purchase throw away cutters that will do the job for a short period of time, but a good cutter will last a long time, has replaceable heads, and is comfortable to hold. There are many cutters to choose from, and usually it's a matter of preference about which one to use. I use a Toyo Comfort Grip cutter most often now, but as a beginner I liked the feel of the Pistol Grip cutter the best. Many stained glass artists have a variety of cutters they use if they continue working with glass.

Breaker groziers are important when taking any class where glass cutting will take place. If choosing between breaker groziers and breaker pliers as a beginner, I like the breaker pliers. The groziers, however, give you an additional advantage of being able to gnaw away at the edges of the glass where small amounts of glass need to be removed. This is a staple tool for any stained glass studio and is something you will want to purchase eventually.
