Want to do something fun and creative? Create a beautiful & truly unique work of art for you or for gifting just in time for Mother’s Day!
No experience with glass is required for this course. Cost includes all project supplies, use of equipment, kiln firing and art glass.

In this workshop, you will learn how to create beautiful works of decorative and functional art by layering art glass to be fused in Jill's studio kiln in-between classes. You will be introduced to the fundamental concepts of creating fused glass objects and then make two of the three following options: a fused glass pendant and a pair of earrings, or a pin. The jewelry workshop is a two session class taking place Saturday, May 11 + 18. Students will select glass and create their jewelry in the first class. Jill will fire the glass in her studio and return the fired pieces to students for the second class. In the second session, students will be shown how to add ear hooks, a bail and chain, or pin-back as required to complete their jewelry.
