Public and i3Member Class - Glass Kiln 201 - Fusing & Jewelry
Thursday, October 24, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
Get an introduction to this novel way to create glass art without handling molten glass.
Learn the basic techniques for fusing, including jewelry and home decor pieces. Topics include glass compatibility, firing schedules, tacking, fiberboard molds and more. In class you’ll make 3 fused pieces for jewelry (pendant and 2 earrings) and fuse a 4" tile that can be slumped. Basic glass cutting skills are taught; no prior fusing experience is necessary. Use of tools and materials, including fusible glass, are included.
i3 Members and General Public are welcome.
Course Duration: 2 hours.
Materials will be provided.
Students 17 and younger must be accompanied by an adult/guardian also taking the course.
When & Where
i3 Detroit is a DIY collective in Ferndale, with tools and resources to facilitate a wide variety of projects. The name stands for "Imagine, Innovate, and Inspire".
Supported by its members but open to guests as well, i3 Detroit's facility hosts workshops and classes as often as possible. Led by volunteer instructors (mostly members), these are usually free, but may require a materials fee for participation.
When there's no class happening (and sometimes when there is!), you'll usually find members in the space, soldering, sewing, welding, sculpting, programming, woodworking, or just hanging out.
Founded in 2009, i3 Detroit has about 70 members and funds its operation mostly through member dues. Donations from students and guests are always appreciated, and have the potential to substantially increase our resources!
