$49 for an Intro Fused-Glass Coaster-Making Class ($100 Value)

During a 2.5-hour Hip to be Square: Graphic Coasters class, pupils study the fundamentals of forging objects in a kiln rather than an easy-bake oven before compiling four 4”x4” fused coasters from many different colored glass powders and Bullseye sheet glass colors. Through this process, students glean knowledge about the powder-printing technique, a screen-printing method that uses dry glass powder to create images with rich textures and colors on glass.

Scheduled up to four times a month on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings, sessions accommodate a maximum of 16 students and supply all tools and materials needed to form the fused creations. No prior experience is necessary.

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.
