October 6, 2019 | Headlines

TONKAWA —  Creating luminous pendants, ornaments, tiles, bowls, nightlights and much more is the focus of Glass Fusing, a popular community enrichment class offered by Audrey Schmitz at Northern Oklahoma College.

The class will meet on Thursday and Tuesday for four sessions in October in Creative Arts Building Room 110 from 6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. Dates are Thursday, Oct. 17 and 24 and Tuesday, Oct. 22 and 29.   No prior experience is required.  The class fee is $35, which does not include the cost of the glass.

 “The price of the materials will vary with the project,” Schmitz said, “For example, a pendant or small ornament will start at $5.” Attendees can choose to make one or more items during each session, and all materials will be available for purchase on site. Along with learning the basics, there will be many opportunities to experiment with adding glass dots, confetti, stringer, mica, copper foil and nichrome wire to achieve one-of-a-kind works. Those with prior glass fusing experience will be able to tackle advanced projects if they choose.”

The class is limited to 10 students. Because of the special nature of the class, pre-registration is required and walk-ins cannot be accommodated. NOC community enrichment classes are non-credit courses and have no grades, tests or attendance requirements.  To register call 580-628-6224 or visit the NOC Registrar’s Office in the Vineyard Library-Administration Building For more information about the class, contact Schmitz at 580-628-6670.
