Intermediate Fused Glass Boot Camp:
Stips, Bars, Powders, and More

Pattern Bars, Strip Construction, Frits & Powders, Coldworking: 5 Complete Days of Fusing Goodness!

This class is ideal for:

  • Artists who understand the basics but who want to take their creativity to the next level.
  • Experienced fusers who are largely self-taught and want to learn new techniques and fill in their knowledge with a wide array of tips, tricks and best-practices.
  • Out-of-towners who want cannot attend weekly classes but who want to benefit from the kind of education that only a world-class teaching studio like Helios can offer.

What we will cover:

Here are many (but not all) of the things you'll learn at the Helios Intermediate Fused Glass Boot Camp:
