Event Details

Glass fusing is an early art form which dates back to ancient Egypt and Rome. Jewelry, tile, and bowls are among the fused glass pieces of that time. Have your own hands-on glass art experience! Come make a colorful fused glass necklace and a colorful fused glass bookmark while you learn some of the science and history of this magical medium. Visiting, artist, Kristin duCharme, will help you create a fused glass collage by arranging and layering small bits of colored glass using tweezers and glue. The collages will be then brought back to her glass studio and fused together in the heat of a large kiln. Your finished projects will be ready for you to pick up at the library a couple of weeks later.
Registration required. Please sign up at the Library!
For ages 18 & up.
