What you'll do

At my Private Art Studio, Juliart, you will go straight into hands-on fused glass techniques to make a 3x4 fused glass suncatcher. You will have your own work station where I'll teach you the tips and safety of fused glass art.
1) You will see examples of design, be able to browse ideas and create your own design using patterns, shapes and books that I have accumulated over the years
2) You will layer up to 2 1/2 pieces of compatible sheet glass, glass frit, powder, nipped glass, glass stringer, glass rods and/or confetti using my tools, equipment and supplies.
3) You will glue layers together.
4) It will take an hour or two to complete your project.
5) You will choose a fusing technique like "full, soft or tack fused".
6) You will allow 24 hours for the kiln firing and cooling down process before taking home your finished piece.
7) Warning! You will not want to quit. Glass work is very addicting❣️
Other things to note
You will wear my aprons & use my glass tools to cut & nip glass shapes; placing layers on a glass blank that will be fired to fuse the design you created. It takes 24 hours to fire (the kiln ramps up to temp, holds to fire, anneals then ramps back down to room temp.) PU or have fused glass mailed.

I. Must. Create. I love art and creative expression. I am not happy unless I can create. Teaching art at the University of Nevada Reno south campus for 10 years then at the College of the Siskiyous for 20 years was a passionate endeaver. I was an elementary school teacher for 10 yearts and still participate in Artist's in Residence at our local elementary school. I am fortunate to continue the creative process into retirement in our mountain community at Villa d' Juland where my art studio, Juliart, is located. I love teaching and connecting with both adults and children!
