Have some fun and learn a new skill. In this two-hour workshop, students will learn how to fuse a glass wave using a 4″x4″ flat glass sheet and bits of crushed transparent glass in shades of blue and green. Your unique design will be fired to a tack fuse to create a textured, 3D work of art to be displayed on a mini easel or used in a decorative way in your home. Your beautiful creations will make a wonderful holiday gift for a loved one, as well. Kids are welcome in this workshop, but ages 6+ only, and ages 6 – 10 must be accompanied by a parent!
About the instructor: Sharon Warren is a glass artist with a BS in Marine Engineering from the US Merchant Marine Academy. She has had the opportunity to show her work and teach internationally as part of a US Navy family. Her glass journey started in 2008 with glass blowing classes at Tidewater Community College in Portsmouth, Virginia. In 2010, her focus shifted to fused glass. While living overseas, she had the incredible opportunity to take the Orsoni Master in Mosaic class in Venice, Italy. After her family retired from the military, they settled in Belfast to be near family. Sharon is also one of our Summer Art Market artist vendors and will be part of our 2023 Holiday Pop Up!
Sharon says, “Glass is a tool to bring my artistic visions, precious moments, and scientific experiments together in a way they can be shared with others. Everyone wants to find a way to leave their mark on the world, and for me, I find this through my glasswork.”
