I cannot recommend Linda’s casting class strongly enough.
She is a fused glass pioneer, has been kiln casting glass longer than just about anyone anywhere, and is an superb teacher. You will not find a more experienced kiln casting artist or more generous instructor.
If you are looking to learn how to cast glass in a kiln you will not find a better opportunity.
