Fusing is both a technical pursuit for artists and an artistic pursuit for technicians. Fusing is the fastest
Growing segment of glass as an art medium. Introduction to Glass Fusing is designed for the novice who
wants to learn the basics of creating kiln-formed glass as well as for the intermediate fuser who wants to
improve their understanding of how glass changes in the kiln. Each week, we'll spend some time
discussing fusing theory and how to fire to achieve the desired results. Then we'll move forward into
cutting and assembling the weekly project using skills that were learned in that discussion. The photos
shown here are examples of your class projects. NOTE: It is not mandatory that you take the Cutting
Skills Workshop 101, but you do need to be able to cut glass. The following is a basic outline of what will
