Hearts for Mother's Day Bowl (Afternoon Class)
2 sessions, Tuesday, March 8, and Thursday, March 10
4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

In this two-session class, you will create a beautiful 6-inch fused glass bowl using a fusible wafer (almost like a candy taffy substance) to express your heartfelt sentiments. It is a lovely gift for yourself or someone you love. We will first create a fusible wafer made of glue and glass powder, cut that into a design once it's dry, and then fuse it onto a pre-cut clear 6-inch round shape. Learn more about fusible glass and what happens when it is fired under extremely hot temperatures. OR choose: Evening: 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. Read more and register.
