Title: Glass: “Fused Glass Garden Spinner”
Description: The Garden Spinner is a great class for the beginning glass fuser. In this 2 day class, you will get an introduction into embossing glass as well as an introduction into the world of glass fusing. The pieces will be fired overnight in my studio and returned for wire wrapping and decorating the next day. The completed Garden Spinner is perfect hanging on a porch or in the garden where even the slightest breeze will make it spin.
