Three Birds Workshop

Let’s create our popular Three Birds design together! We focus on using the scoring tool to create smooth, rounded bird bodies. You choose your base shape and glass colors for your design. 15% off garden art or table stands for participants.

Cost: $45 or a MoltenWorks gift certificate

When: Wednesday, April 17th OR April 24th, 7 - 9pm

Flower Varieties

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!

Geometric Shapes

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 pattern ideas.


Jewelry Workshops have a new look!

Create 5 pieces of jewelry in three phases over three days. You will cut your own glass, attach your own earring findings or pendant bails, wire wrap your own jewelry if you choose, finish your jewelry pieces with hand-selected chains & clasps and package your jewelry, walking away with a gift-ready piece.

Phase 1: Introduction to Fused Glass Jewelry

Includes step-by-step instruction for cutting your own glass. You will create 2 of your 5 pieces in this phase.

Phase 2: Create & Place

See what your pieces look like from Phase 1, create your final 3 pieces, attach your own earring findings or pendant bails, and learn to wire wrap your own jewelry.

Phase 3: Finishing Touches

Wire wrap any remaining pieces, select chains for any pendants and style for backs of earrings. Attach your earrings to earring cards and package your pieces in exclusive MoltenWorks jewelry boxes. You will leave Phase 3 with a “gift-ready” project.

Jewelry Workshop Schedule: Thursdays starting March 7

Phase 1: 6 - 8pm

Phases 2 & 3: 7 - 9pm


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 or MoltenWorks Orientation is required to attend a Depth Workshop.

Included base shape options: Tray, large square, large circle (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 so your art stands independently)

  • 12” round (garden art or table stand available as an additional upgrade)

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.

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

Cost: $99

Seattle Skyline

You choose to put the Seattle Skyline in the background or the foreground of your design. Maybe you put a ferry and the Great Wheel in front. Or our iconic skyline may sit in front of the Olympics or Cascades. Just some ideas.

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

Cost: $99
