New to kiln-glass? Or ready to polish some foundational skills? Boost your creativity in the studio by upping your confidence in the basics of working with a kiln.
In this 2.5-hour live, online class, you’ll learn via computer from your own home or studio. Don't miss this opportunity to learn studio basics with Ted Sawyer, the head of Bullseye’s Research and Education Department. You'll learn about preparing shelves, programming kilns, and working with firing cycles. The more comfortable you become with these studio fundamentals, the readier you’ll be to have fun in the studio. Ted will facilitate classroom interaction through group chat and draw upon everyone's questions and comments to tie the session together during a live Q&A time.
- We will be using Zoom for the live class sessions. For optimal streaming, Zoom recommends using their desktop program or mobile app. (Only use their web service if you cannot access the other options.) In addition, we strongly recommend using a desktop or laptop computer with all of the following: high-speed internet, a web cam, a microphone, and speakers. A tablet may suffice. Phones, however, should be avoided. Smartphone screens will be too small, and a landline phone will not allow for any interactivity.
- For additional help navigating Zoom, watch our Zoom orientation video.
- Prerequisites: Recommended for new kiln owners, those thinking about getting a kiln, or others who want to know more about how firing schedules work.
The Class PDF: At least a day before the class, log into the classes website and go to Account > My Available Downloads where you'll be able to download the class pdf. It contains the instructions and links you'll need for accessing class.
