Description

In this half-day workshop, students will learn how to use a torch to fuse colored glass to copper. You will have the opportunity to make an assortment of jewelry and display tiles.

Students will be enameling, which is the process of applying a thin coat of finely ground glass onto metal. When heated to a high temperature, the glass melts and fuses to the metal allowing for creative, colorful designs. 

The torch oxidizes and blends the pigments, creates patterns, and causes chemical reactions that do not occur with kiln firing. Firing times are intuitive, allowing for control of heat placement throughout the artwork.

Cancellation & Class Policies

Student Withdrawal
Requests for cancellation by the student at least seven (7) days prior to the first day of class will be honored (minus a $20 processing fee).  NO REFUNDS will be given for a student cancellation made less than seven (7) days in advance of the first day of the class.

Class Cancellations (Weather)
When Public Schools of Petoskey are closed due to inclement weather, CTAC-Petoskey classes are cancelled. We will do our best to provide a make-up opportunity for the missed class. Refunds will not be given if the student is unable to attend the rescheduled session of class. Workshops and one-time classes will be handled on a per-class basis. School of Ballet students are asked to make up the missed class in an alternate session approved by their instructor.

Student Absence
We are unable to offer refunds or make-up sessions for classes missed due to student absence.

COVID-19 Symptoms or Exposure
If you suspect that you have been exposed to or display symptoms of COVID-19, please do not come to CTAC for your in-person class. We will offer a prorated credit (never expires) or refund for two weeks of your missed class for all cancellations due to suspected COVID-19 infection and/or exposure. If you choose to drop the remainder of your class, you will receive a prorated refund of the tuition of the remaining sessions.

COVID-19 Class Cancellations
In the event of a COVID-19 outbreak or state mandate, CTAC will announce the closure on its website and phone system (231-347-4337). Prorated refunds will be issued for the remaining sessions.

Minimum Enrollment
Crooked Tree Arts Center reserves the right to cancel any class that does not meet its minimum student enrollment prior to the first class session. If a class is cancelled by CTAC for lack of enrollment, CTAC will offer a full refund to the student in the manner in which tuition was paid. (Cash payments will be refunded by check.)
