advancing your knowledge...
This class gives guidance on how & where (in your home) to set up a "Studio" to continue cutting & fusing glass at your leisure! It covers safety measures, best possible location(s), and what you'll need. A glass fusing Kit can be purchased (at this time) to enable student to start soon!
Class is approximately 1-1.5 hours.
Want to purchase a new kiln or maybe you just acquired a kiln OR maybe you have one sitting at home that hasn't been used yet! This class will review everything about your kiln from removing it from the box, shipping damage, preparing kiln shelves, firing, and more! We'll review a variety of different kilns so you can determine (if you haven't purchased one yet) which would be best for your glass firing/creating needs. If you already have a kiln, we'll review the type & usage.
Class Length: Approximately 2-2.5 hours.
If you're looking for more 1-on-1 time to learn how to USE Your New Kiln, I offer a 3-hour session to do just that in the comfort of your own home! This is a "Custom Scheduled" 3-hour session, and is described below.

Just bought a "New" Glass Kiln and you're hesitant to Start it Up? Have a Glass Kiln that's been sitting in the Box since you got it? Or maybe you got a *New* Controller and don't know how to use it! This One-on-One Session with Me at Your Home w/You and Your Kiln & Controller will be Very Beneficial to You in helping you to Take that First Step, and actually start USING your Kiln! Student will receive "Assignment" to create a few "sample" pendants/pieces out of various types of fusible glass, then step-by-step we'll start firing/heating up your kiln, with Student taking notes, to determine how the kiln fires at various temps, when to look in the kiln, determining how pieces look at various temps, and how to schedule a glass firing program. This Class will enable you to "jump over" that hurdle of fear of using your "new" kiln! This class is "Custom Scheduled" with each Student. Once you purchase the Session, I will contact you to Schedule this Private Session in your Home w/Your Kiln, PLUS I will ask you for your Kiln & Controller Manual so I can review ahead of time.

Additional time spent in your home (beyond 4 hours) will incur additional fee. Travel further than 1 hour/60 miles incurs additional fee. Class Time: 4 Hours. (DATE SET WHEN REGISTRATION SUBMITTED.)
