In this 4-week course, students will explore the potential of using reactive glass in kiln-forming glass. You will learn what makes a glass “reactive”, how heat and layering pieces when firing can affect the intensity of a reaction.
By the end of this course, you will have a clear understanding of the basics of reactive glass and how to begin to use the effects of reactive glass in your own fused glass creations.
Key Course Concepts:
- Understand the science and properties of reactive glass.
- Explore the different types of reactive glasses and their applications.
- Learn how to incorporate reactive glass techniques into your fused glass projects.
- Make reactive glass part sheets to use
Tuition for this class is underwritten by a grant from the Windgate Foundation.
