Fusing: 302 Reactive Glasses Class Details

Fusing: 302 Reactive Glasses

With:  Roy Kapp

One Day Only: 

Where:  Delphi's Lansing Creativity Center

When:  10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Come explore the reactive capabilities of fusible glasses.  Discover the fun and creative possibilities of fusing glasses that produce interesting effects by chemical reactions.  While fusing in a kiln the chemicals that help give the glass it’s color can react with certain chemicals in other glasses.  This reaction occurs at the interface of where the glasses meet.  This class will help you figure out which glasses react with other glasses and how to use this information to enhance your work.  The knowledge gained is also valuable if you are trying to avoid the accidental reaction that can ruin a piece.  Students will have an opportunity to work with a variety of reactive glasses and create sample tiles to keep for further reference. Firing schedules and related topics will also be covered. 
Some glass fusing and cutting experience is required.  All materials and use of tools is included.

  •   Roy is the best

Pros : Roy teaches in a way that makes you try what you think you can't do. Then you find out you can! He is truly a good person and his classes are so informative, fun and mind expanding. If you can take his class...do it!
Cons : Never enough time for all the ideas that pop up during class! Must take more than one.

Pros : I probably could have learned everything with reading and trail and error but now I feel I can create projects with reactive glass without too many errors. I have a much better understanding of reactive glass and its properties thanks to Roy and all his samples. I took the class yesterday and when loading my kiln at home today, I put in a piece created with reactive glass.
Cons : None.
