Fused Glass - Christine Kende, Artist Instructor

Drop-in Classes are held each Thursday and Saturday afternoons
TIME: 1 PM - 3 PM

Christine Kende has been working with glass for over 30 years, and having  been a science teacher, she finds the overlap of art and science fascinating.

Christine introduces students to the art of fused glass and how it differs from stained or blown glass.  With Christine's help, you will be able to create an "unfused" glass piece on a Saturday afternoon.  Some projects may be more complicated and take longer. You can finish more complicated designs the following or another Saturday.  

After a class Christine will take your unfused glass to her off-site studio to be fired.  Some projects will take multiple firings to attain a finished piece.   Your fused glass art piece can usually be picked it up at the Art Loft on a following Saturday.
