HeadsHeads ‘n’ Tail Glass Art - Intermediate class - 3wks -  $75 tuition + Glass
In this class we will be creating a wall hanging using heads and tails, zinc, Rondels, etc. 
What are Heads and Tails? When glass makers create sheets of glass, the ends of those sheets can form unusual and
interesting shapes.  They cut the glass sheets to precise sizes when they come off of the
annealing Lehr and the head ends are what is left over.  Sometimes called tail ends, these glass trimming pieces are
usually pretty enough to serve as a decorative piece without any changes, but they are great for art projects! 

Below are a few links to more ideas.  
This class will include Cyndee's help in creating an awesome wall hanging. We will be using saws, circle cutters, came benders
and much more.  Limited to 1-2 layers in this class (3 layers shown)

Bring glass cutting and soldering equipment.
