Discover the Art of Creating Fused Glass Jewelry

Sep 23, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM

Learn to create stunning pieces of fused glass jewelry at Pekin Park District’s Fused Glass classes.  Pekin High School’s art teacher, Amy Psinas, will take an evening from 6 – 8:30pm at Pekin High School’s Tech Ed Center to teach you about fusing various pieces of glass to make up to ten pieces of one-of-a-kind jewelry. These fused glass classes, for 16 years and up, are all about creativity, bonding with new friends, and having fun.  The jewelry will then be fired in a glass kiln and ready to be picked up the next day.  Wear your jewelry yourself or give your pieces as fabulous gifts.  Pick a class from the list below and register early…these classes fill fast!  Fee includes all supplies.

Full Glass Fusing - The following dates will cover a variation of glass cutting methods and instruction on how to do a full fuse.  No previous glass experience necessary; cutting skills will be taught.

Open Studio Classes – (Prerequisite:  Full Glass Fusing.)  Create plates and aperture (pot) melts by kiln-firing glass inside a clay pot.  This creates beautiful, unique pieces that will be ready for pickup in only two days.  Open Studio also includes an introduction to metal clay, which is fired in a kiln to produce earrings, bracelets, brooches, rings, and various other types of jewelry.
