Discover the world of gorgeous glass at the Sun Lakes Rock, Gem & Silver Club (SLRGS). No need for previous experience, as the club offers wonderful instructions in many types of glass.
Glass has been used since Ancient Greek and Roman times, notably stained glass to depict religious scenes in churches, etc. SLRGS offers three types of glass classes.
Stained glass is cold glass. It involves cutting and combining different colored glass and textures, then using copper foiling and soldering techniques to bind the pieces together.
Fused glass, which is warm glass, involves using a kiln. The glass is fired at different temperatures, depending on the results you want to achieve. SLRGS offers classes in fused glass where you can create a variety of objects from birds, to bowls, to wall art.
Dichroic glass is simply glass that has metal infused or coated on it, producing metallic, vibrant results.
