Do you have a kiln and not sure how to successfully fire it for glass? Or are you interested in understanding how glass fires in a variety of situations? Then this is the class for you. In this class a variety of topics will be covered to enable you to better understand how glass works in a kiln and thus have greater success when firing glass. We will discuss firing schedules for various situations including slumping, tack fusing, full fusing, firing thick glass and also cover areas such as annealing, viscosity, COE and glass dynamics.
This program will be predominantly lecture based with some demonstrations. This class is suitable for the beginner. Notes provided.
