Lois' Wednesday Morning Fusing Club at AAE Glass

1228 Lafayette St.
Cape Coral, FL 33904
With so many glass artists in SW Florida this time of year, AAE Glass wants to add another fusing club on Wednesday mornings.  If you haven't had a chance to visit the AAE Glass Art studio yet, what are you waiting for?  Our studio has the best glass fusing equipment and teachers in SW Florida not to mention we stock all Bullseye glass, frit stringers molds and more, all in a fun and relaxing environment.  I would like to introduce you to one of our teachers as well as some of the content she will cover on Wednesday mornings.  If you are interested in this fusing club or just visiting the AAE Glass Art studio in general, call 239-471-7724 for more information.
