Today is the final day of registration for a glass fusing camp for kids that starts one week from Monday. STARworks is offering the camp, which is designed especially for children age 12 to 16.
The program will be taught by Dave Wilkie, a former Montgomery County Schools principal who specializes in glassblowing and fusing as a volunteer at STARworks Glass. Students will learn how to create fused objects – including glass tiles, dishes and other items – using pieces of cut colored glass that are laid out and fired in a kiln.
STARworks Glass coordinator Nick Fruin says, “Fusing is a fun and safe way to learn about what is actually happening to the glass when it is heating up and why it takes so long to cool down.”
Registration closes today, and the camp begins Mon., July 22, and will run from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon each day through the week. Information is available at 910-428-9001 or online at http://www.starworksnc.com.
