What you'll do

In this three and a half hour class I will show you how to take glass fusing materials such as frit, stringer, sheet glass, confetti and frit balls to create imagery on sheet glass. The sheet glass will act as a canvas for your design and will become a Menorah. In the first half hour of class a small talk about how glass is fired in a kiln will be given, a demonstration of how to use the glass materials will be shown, and then I will guide you through making your own fused glass menorah. Stencils and a selection of small pre-made glass shapes will help you to create a personal and visually pleasing art piece. Later I will fire your work for you in my kiln and glue together the parts you have made into a menorah. Work can be picked up at my home the following week, or shipping arrangements can be made for an additional cost. Couples and parent child teams can pay for one spot and make a Menorah together too!

Charissa

I have been a practicing studio artist for over 24 years, using both natural materials and glass to create sculptures and utilitarian objects. I grew up with a glass artist for a mother and worked in the research and education department of Bullseye Glass for 2 years. After receiving a BFA in Glass and an MFA in Fibers I moved to Portland and established my studio. With over 24 years of experience in teaching art to both adults and children, I can lead students through techniques in a fun way to create a piece. My studio is a fun creative playground of art making I am happy to share.

Where you'll be

Although my studio is a bit of a drive from the center of Portland the space does not disappoint! Our class takes place in my lovely 900 square foot studio. Lots of room to create! You will also have the pleasure of seeing many artworks I have created and whatever piece is in process at the time.
