Introduction to Fused Glass

with Amanda Taylor

Saturday, November 7, 10AM – 5PM
O-AT-KA Studio

Join Amanda Taylor in her new light-filled O-AT-KA glass studio in Burnsville, NC to design and create a one-of-a-kind fused glass window or panel. Bring a photo or drawing for inspiration and prepare for a fun and creative day out of the house. Taylor will fire the pieces, to be picked up at a later date or shipped for an additional fee. The class fee includes all materials and tool rental.

Class cost varies between $75 and $250, depending on the size of the finished piece.


Participants must wear cloth face coverings over the nose and mouth and properly socially distance during workshops.

For availability and interest in our Fall or future workshops, contact Community Outreach Coordinator Melanie Finlayson at 828.765.0524 or melanie@toeriverarts.org. Alternative dates are available for Amanda Taylor’s classes; please reach out for more details.

Amanda Taylor is a kiln-formed glass designer, crafter and instructor. She is passionate about teaching people of all ages the joys and creative freedom of kiln-formed glass.
