Fused Glass Egg Workshops!

By Bonnie Wright, Curator of Education and Community Engagement

Have you tried your hand at tack fusing?

Fusing is a technique used to bond together pieces of glass using heat from a kiln. Tack fusing is a form of fusing that allows some textures, composed while cold, to stay partially intact after the fusing process has taken place.

Museum of Glass now offers seasonal tack fusing projects, including Santas and wreaths during the holiday season and conversation hearts on Valentine’s weekend. The next seasonal project, Easters eggs and hatching chicks, will take place on March 12 and 13!

Fusing opportunities take place on the second full weekend of each month. On months with no seasonal project, MOG will revert to its traditional full fused tile making workshops.
