On October 14, 2017, an intimate group of VAA members experienced a hands-on glass fusion workshop at Robert Straight’s studio. Robert demonstrated glass cutting techniques and provided members with all the necessary tools and glass to make a small piece. tack fused or full fused. He worked with each person on their project and it was put in the kiln overnight for fusing. This was an overnight process so the projects came out of the kiln the next day.
