Under the instruction of an experienced artist, students arrange their included frame and glass into appealing designs before firing pieces into cohesive, eye-catching chimes. Call ahead for available class times. No experience is necessary.

Sarasota School of Glass

The Sarasota School of Glass invites artisans into its studio to learn the techniques of fusing, casting, and slumping colorful decorations and dishes. Projects begin with fusing, where students layer pieces of colored glass into creative designs and melt them in a kiln, turning the parts into one solid piece. The second firing is called slumping or kiln forming, where the fused glass is heated in a mold until it takes on the shape of the desired vase, plate, or eternally molten plasma gob. Complementing a large menu of intensive and just-for-fun workshops, free Wacky Wednesday sessions lend artists the school's glass pros to diagnose problems and suggest fresh techniques over snacks. The studio and kiln are also available for independent artists creating their own pieces or heating up their lunch.
