Over the course of this two-day class, students will learn how to safely use a variety of coldworking tools to shape and bevel the edges of a fused glass piece, as well as how to sand and grind the top and bottom surfaces of a kilnformed object. Students will be introduced to the tile saw, belt sander, lap wheel, angle grinder, loose grit, lathe, diamond hand laps and sandblaster through hands-on experience with each tool. The class will also include a discussion on the effects of fire polishing coldworked surfaces. Students will leave class with two samples, and are qualified to come back to participate in our Coldworking Open Studio.
All experience levels welcome.
