Fused Glass Sun Catchers with Janie Yakovlevitch


Catch the sun in your home or garden with this beautiful hanging fused piece. 

In this fun and easy class you will work with a wide range of materials as you create your three-paned fused sun catcher.  This class will expose you the basics of glass fusing. You will learn how to:

  • Decorate with small pieces of glass and millifiore
  • Play with frit (finely ground glass) and stringers to decorate your heart
  • Create metal reactions using silver wire and copper inclusions
  • Paint with fusing paints, a very easy way to add design and intricacy into your fusings.

After your panels are created we will then fuse and join them together with wire ready for hanging. 

  • Level: All levels
  • Cost:  $85 all materials included
