Workshops focus on advanced glass cutting techniques, building on the knowledge introduced in a Sip N’ Fuse class. Each workshop is designed with a specific technique or design to help you advance your glass-working knowledge. Participation in at least one Sip N’ Fuse class is required for workshop attendance.

Flower Garden Workshop

Flowers are a popular design on any fused glass piece, either as an accent or as the main attraction. We’ll cover how to cut a variety of petal shapes so you can design the flower garden of your choice. We’re going to tack-fuse these projects so you can see and feel the texture of each glass piece. Participants also receive 15% off garden art and table stands so you can proudly display your design!

When: Tuesday*, January 8th, 7 - 9pm OR January 22nd, 7 - 9pm

Registration is open for these workshops. Click here to reserve your spot.

*We are typically closed on Tuesdays. We will open at 6:45pm for class participants.

Quilt Blocks

Many quilt blocks are combination of triangles and squares, which works perfectly with glass fusing! Bring the quilt block pattern of your choice to create or use a pattern we provide. We will focus on cutting straight lines for squares and triangles using the scoring technique.

Check out our Pinterest Board for quilt pattern ideas.

Introducing Depth Workshops

Two-part workshops in which you create a single design on two separate pieces of glass, creating a unique depth to your art.

In the first class you will create your background, or the image that is furthest away from your point of view.  In the second class, you’ll create the foreground, or the scene/image closest to you, on another clear base piece, taking into consideration the design on your first piece.  

Prerequisite: Participation in a Sip N’ Fuse class with Instruction is required prior to attending a Depth Workshop.

Included base shape options: Tray, large square, large round (black, white and clear options)

Exclusively for these workshops, we’re making special sized base pieces, available as upgrades. Cost: $60

  • 9 x 13 glass for a horizontal scene (slumped in an arch to freestand)

  • 12” round (garden art or table stand available in addition)

Fishbowl

A fishbowl is a natural example of depth perception. Perhaps your background has seaweed gently waving or a coral reef. Or you see a rocky background, perhaps home to an octopus or sea anemones. In the foreground, there may be fish, a sea star, or more seaweed. Perhaps a shipwreck or submarine dominates your vision.

Register Here.

When: March 6th AND 13th, 6 - 9pm

Cost: $99

Mt. Rainier: A Depth Workshop

Mount Rainier is the backdrop of so many beautiful PNW scenes. Working off an iconic picture of our local giant, we will create a scene with Mt. Rainier. For your foreground, we will prepare 3 - 4 design options to inspire you, including the Lodge at Paradise, a camper, local wildlife or wildflowers. Register Here.

When: March 20th AND 27th, 6 - 9pm

Cost: $99

When: April 3rd AND 10th, 6 - 9pm

Cost: $99
