This is also an intensive but gives students a little more time to get a feel for the tools and glass. Price: $500 per person (minimum of 2 people) Or $460 per person w/group of 4 or more

Well this is the class for you. From form to functional, Artist Laurel Marie Hagner

metal sculpture. The first three classes include information and demonstrations on
the fundamentals of welding, cutting (using different saws), bending, rolling, raising,
sculptural cold forming, forging, shaping, torching, plasma cutting, and methods on
how to put it all together. Each student will take this information and design their
personal final projects to be created over the last three classes. Open Studio Time is
provided for students to have more working time than just class time. The class fee
covers all material costs for the first three classes where each student will practice
working with the materials in ways that are demonstrated. Call or email with questions.

Beginning Glass Fusing and Slumping (6 Weeks)
This Hands on class brings the art of fusing and glass quickly into your life. While addressing important technical fundamentals of the process, Laurel Marie Hagner guides students through experimentation and implementation, into artistic creation. Each class students are seeing and doing a number of processes from cutting, designing, testing, and applying glass to be tac fused, full fused, textured, and slumped into a variety of shapes and forms. Each student will make a number of test tiles to define their own personal aesthetic language while learning how the material responds. Then works of art and function will be made by building on what has been learned. Demonstrations continue throughout the class to keep students thinking and on their toes. Each Student should expect to make 10-16 tiles, several dishes, a bowl, and their personally determined final project. Open Studio Time will be provided and if students wish to complete all the assignments, will most likely be necessary. Most Materials are covered by the Class Fee. Students will be responsible for materials outside the basic assignments and may purchase glass at 25% off retail from the studio for their final projects.
