Glass for Good

Glass fusing parties for fundraising

It's a win-win situation: You learn to make beautiful fused glass art, and Bullseye Glass donates up to $800 to your school or non-profit organization!

How it works

  • You recruit 16 people to attend a 2.5 hour introductory kilnforming class at a Bullseye Glass Resource Center for the regular price. (There are several classes to choose from.)
  • Bullseye Glass collects the class fees and donates up to $800 (depending on the number of participants) to your organization!

Bullseye provides space, an instructor and teacher's assistant, and all the necessary supplies and materials. The organizer or participants can bring refreshments to enjoy during class. After class, we'll fire the projects you create. They'll be ready for pick up a day or two later.

Block Party: Carving Glass With Heat

Create numbers or letters or other graphic imagery on a luscious slab of glass using a ceramic fiber paper design and the right amount of heat, a technique known as kilncarving.

First Glass Fusing Class

A great way to introduce yourself (or the artist in your life) to the fundamental concepts of creating glass objects in the kiln. Using a wide range of glasses, students make an 8" x 8" fused and slumped plate.

Hip to be Square: Graphic Coasters

Learn the basics of powder printing, a screen printing method that uses glass powder to create images with rich textures and colors on glass—and create a set of coasters your guests will want to steal!

Day of the Dead Glass Skulls

This class introduces the "pâte de verre" (French for "paste of glass") technique. Students fill a plaster silica mold with granules of glass to create a sculptural form that, despite its sugar-and-icing appearance, is strong and long lasting.

The Necklace Project

Work with a wide palette of sheet glass colors and pre-designed part sheets to make two kilnformed glass pendants. Students receive a brief introduction to the fundamental concepts of fused glass and glass cutting.
