OLD FORGE – View will host a recycled glass fusion class on two Wednesdays, Dec. 13 and 20. Learn how to create fused plates and bowls using a two-stage fusing process.

The class will meet from 4 to 6 p.m. each day. In the first class, participants will learn how to create a fused plate.

In the second class, participants will learn how to cut and create a recycled bottle wind chime or holiday decoration.

Glass fusion is a process used to join glass pieces together — typically by partly melting the glass at high temperature.

Commonly, the fusion process takes multiple pieces of glass that has been put together, and heating them — usually in an electric kiln.

The total cost for the two classes is $65 for visitors and $60 for View members. All materials will be provided.

View is located at 3273 State Route 28. Register for this class online at ViewArts.org or call 315-369-6411. Deadline for registration is Dec. 11.
