In this 2 hour workshop you will learn the basics of glass fusing while having fun playing with glass shapes, colors and textures. First, through a series of fun exercises, you will learn how to use glass powders, frits and stringers. Then, you’ll design and create a low relief tack fused tile, then a small dish.
Kids will have the option to create a fused night light instead of a plate. Your instructor will fire your creations in his own kiln. They will be available for pick-up at Fuller Craft Museum within two weeks.
*Students must wear closed toes shoes. Safety glasses will be provided.
Instructor: Michel L’huillier
Michel L’Huillier discovered his love of glass after studying fine arts and art history in Strasbourg, France. On a smaller scale than his architectural work, Michel designs and creates stunning and functional fused glass objects with intricate colored inlays that can be found on exhibit and for purchase at museums and galleries including the deCordova Museum and Boston’s Society of Arts & Crafts. His work has also been exhibited at juried craft shows, such as Craft Boston. At the 2015 Holiday Craft Boston show, he received the “Award of Distinction in Glass”.
