Glass Fusing also called kiln‐formed glass offers an outlet for creativity; for those who are artistically blessed as well as those who are artistically challenged. You will be able to create anything from functional to expressive from Jewelry to Sculpture, from Table Ware you are only limited by your imagination.

This is a studio style class that allows for beginners to experienced students. The procedures and
techniques that will be taught in this class will include compatibility & testing, basic fusing techniques,annealing, and slumping. The class will be a hands‐on experience using these methods to create original pieces. Mold making, pattern bars, combing and casting will be some of the techniques explored. The advanced kiln forming techniques take fusing to another level.

Instructor: Petra Kaiser is a full time glass artist/instructor and author for over
15 years. Locally she is known for her classes at Big Arts on Sanibel and her 'Fuse It
Studio' classes. Internationally she is known for her books "Introduction to Glass
Fusing", "Fuse It" and now the latest one, "Glass Forming with the Mold Block
System" as well as teaching workshops at conferences and studios worldwide. Her
formal education as an instructor in Germany has proven to be very helpful in
structuring and teaching the glass fusing classes. Petra is fascinated by the endless
possibilities kiln formed glass is offering and she keeps inventing even more.
