Introduction to Fusing (jewelry)
The classes are located in the Dockyard Glassworks and Bermuda Rum Cake Company building. Enter the building and go left and you will see the studio through a door, or just ask a staff member.
The cost is $120.00 per person per Tile. A Tile is a 2in x 7in slab that each person can put their glass on to be fired. Generally 6 - 8 pieces, however one big piece is fine for suncatchers etc.
The classes include all tools and materials. (examples can be seen on the website and facebook.) The class has up to 8 people and lasts 2hrs or less. The tray is then fired to around 1500° F in our kilns.
Once the glass is cooled, 5hrs later or overnight depending if it's an evening or morning class, people return to collect their finished pieces.
Finishing can include glass drilling to make pendants, or using instant UV glue to adhere metal pieces for chains etc. We finish 2 free of charge, the rest can be taken home or we can discuss what to do with them.
We are very flexible about what we can do, Wedding Parties, Girls Nights and Team Building exercises are welcome, ask about group rates.
