Here is a fantastic opportunity to join in at Rocketfrog Stained Glass Studios and learn to create some amazing pieces of art through glass fusing. Often referred to as warm glass, or glass art fusion, the glass fusion process will have you arranging various pieces of glass in layers which are then heated in a kiln to about 810 degrees Centigrade.

Rocketfrog Stained Glass Studios is set up in Mount Gravatt East and provides some of the most phenomenal glass-based classes available.

Jet Carroll, who is the creative and innovative force behind the development of Rocketfrog Stained Glass Studios, holds a BA in Architectural Glass and has been working with glass since 1991. Since 1999 Jet has taught glass art to all ages including specialist art therapy classes.

With Jet's advice and help you will be stunned and excited with the amazing results you can achieve by manipulating glass inside the kiln. Your fused glass projects will give you unique and beautiful designs for all sorts of glass objects including jewellery pieces, funky magnets and tea light holders. You can also incorporate your fused class creations into leadlight or mosaic designs. What you can do is only limited by your imagination (and a little help from Jet).

If you would like to create some treasures of your own by changing fusible glass into sun catchers, coasters, magnets, trivets, glass mobiles, jewellery or inclusions for mosaic or lead light work then join Jet at one of next month's One Day Fun Day! Glass Fusing Workshops.
