$47 for Intro Fused-Glass Plate-Making Class ($100 Value)

During a 2.5-hour introductory glass-fusing class, pupils study the fundamentals of forging objects in a kiln rather than an Easy-Bake Oven before compiling an 8"x8" fused and slumped rectangular plate from many different-colored glasses. Scheduled once or twice a month on Wednesday evenings, sessions accommodate a maximum of 16 students and supply all tools and materials needed to form the fused creations, which are available for pickup on the following Saturday after the course.

Bullseye Glass Co

Founded in 1974 by three "hippie glassblowers," Bullseye Glass Co produces internationally renowned glass materials in thousands of colors and finishes suitable for artistic endeavors of all kinds, such as mosaics and stained glass. Aside from being beautiful to look at, most of Bullseye's glasses are compatible for fusing and kilnforming—something that's especially important for glass artists to know. Bullseye also passes on the ancient art of glass shaping through artist-guided classes. Graduates of these kilnforming classes can return to craft additional treasures or explore the cyclical nature of art by turning a wineglass back into a sandbox.
