Girls Night Out
The other weekend, I went out for a Girls' Night Out at our local paint your own pottery place. They also do glass fusing, which I excitedly tried for the first time. It was a blast! We were able to bring our own wine and snacks and we all decided we were going to go back for another night out. This is something we could actually do at my school with our kiln. I just have to figure out temperature controls and buy some glass cutting tools. There is a way to pre-cut the glass and melt it into little pieces, so when the kids use it the edges are rounded. Have any of you art teachers done this before? Do you have any tips for this type of project? What we did at this store was assemble our designs with little pieces of glass, using tweezers and glue. After it was glued together, they fired it and we picked it up a week later. Here are mine!
