Carla Stevens: Fused Glass Sugar Skulls
Get used to hearing, "You MADE that?!" These fused glass sugar skulls are show-stoppers! The best part: no experience necessary!
Using our pre-cut blanks, you will apply glass bits, stringers, vitrograph, murrini, dichroic, frit, and more to create your very own sugar skull! The size is 6 X 8 and can either be hung in a window, or mounted on a 8 X10 board (included) for the wall. All materials are provided!
We have allotted 2 hours for this project, but everyone works differently, so you may be done sooner.
Local artist, Carla Stevens, is coming to Melt specifically to teach this class. She is locally known for her outstanding concrete, mosaic, fused and stained glass artwork and has extensive experience in all of these mediums. I encourage you to visit her Facebook page, Carla Stevens Glass Art and her website, www.carlastevensglassart.com to see examples of her amazing artwork. She is really fun to work with and will bring a lot of energy to this class!

While your safety is our top concern, each student will be required to sign a standard liability waiver prior to the beginning of each class.
