The Glass Fused Glass Blok Lights Workshop will introduce students to the fused glass terms and teach them fused glass techniques by creating a beautiful ‘Blok Light’. These are the same techniques used to make fused glass jewelry and bowls. We will explore the medium with topics including class compatibility, thermal shock, proper use of cutting, and grinding tools, preparing pieces for the kiln and firing. Students will produce 2 glass panels which will be adhered to the hollow glass blocks, and prepare them with lights. This is a beautiful and functional product which you will be proud to display and talk about for a lifetime.
