New beginner’s kiln-formed glass class taught at Placitas Community Center

Kiln-fired glass is an ancient art form that employs special glass called dichroic glass, which sparkles with the metals with which it is made. Two layers or more provide a canvass where you can create with every color of the rainbow. Fused glass jewelry pieces are easy to create. Cathryne Richards is the instructor for this fun class. There will be three beginner’s class sessions starting the starting April 19, from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m. and continuing on April 26 and May 3.

The glass fusing will take place at the Placitas Community Center, 41 Camino de Las Huertas. Materials to finish your first project will be available for a seven-dollar fee. Glass, dichroic glass and tools for glass cutting and shaping will also be available for sale at the first class. A field trip to gather supplies and ideas will be scheduled in May. Everything from working with crushed glass called frit, firing, slumping or molding your pieces in the kiln, to finishing and marketing your jewelry are topics covered over the course of the open workshops. Call the Community Center to reserve your space in the beginner’s class on April 19 at 867-1396.

The community center is also looking for someone to volunteer to teach a six-week course in Spanish.
