Kilnforming is the process of shaping glass in a kiln with heat and gravity. One of the properties of this glass is “compatibility”, which allows it to be fused to other pieces of glass in a kiln.

When glass is heated in kiln, it becomes soft and the consistency becomes sticky and flexible.  As the temperature continues to increase, the glass becomes more liquid. Gravity takes hold of the molten glass, the molten glass fills the space in which it’s contained, and fuses with any other pieces of compatible glass.

Workshop Description: 

Join us for our Introduction to Kilnforming Glass workshop. During the 4 sessions you will learn about this fun and fascinating technique including basic fusing and bending methods. You will learn to cut fusible glass sheets then add frit, vitrigraph stringer and other forms of glass to design 3 projects that will be uniquely yours. All supplies and tools will be provided.

Classroom Location:

This class will be held in the Yellow Classroom, which is in the northeastern corner of the FCAC campus. Pull into the parking lot from De Soto.
