Open to the public – this class teaches you about glass fusing materials, processes and how to use standard Glass Fusing Lab equipment safely. It is not an official or professional certification.
This class qualifies you to use the Forge Glass Fusing Lab area if you are wanting to become a Forge member. Or, the class is great for anyone wanting to learn how to appropriately and safely use Glass Fusing equipment in their own shop.
This is approx. a 2+ hour workshop. You will then come back to complete your practicum (approx 1 hour). You must attend the practicum if your intention is to join the Forge, and must join within 6 weeks of this qualification class to be considered certified to work in the Glass Fusing Lab.
Practicum is where you will show that you are proficient in using the equipment without supervision by completing a fused glass project.
There are some equipment videos and instructions you need to access and review HERE on our website (scroll down to the Glass Fusing Section under Glass Lab). It is REQUIRED that you watch these videos before you come in for your qualification class.
There are also some quizzes you will complete after your qualification hands-on portion. Do not do the quizzes before the class.
Please dress appropriately for working with Fire and Glass:
- Closed-toe shoes
- be prepared to purchase your materials for class at The Forge
Please arrive a few minutes early.
It is your responsibility to show up on time for your class. You may not be able to participate if you are late.
