During the Beginning Bead-Making class, students first learn safety tips and basics before shaping molten glass into fetching beads. The glass-fusing class teaches students how to cut glass into small pieces before fusing them into distinct designs, and the glass-blowing class arms students with the basic skills to turn hot glass into intricate artwork. All classes are kept small to ensure maximum teacher-student interaction.<p>
Design with Fire
Owners Patrick Mullen and Linnea Wong opened Design with Fire in 2008 to ignite a fiery passion for glass art throughout the community. Mullen, Wong, and their staff of torch-wielding artists call upon their extensive backgrounds in glass manipulation to equip students with the glass-blowing, glass-fusing, and lampworking skills needed to complete an array of projects. During hands-on classes, students learn how to create their own magnum opuses in the form of colorful beads, shimmering jewelry, unique wall hangings, and light-catching vases that empower plants to grow into Cabbage Patch Kids.
