I absolutely love fused glass and fuse something almost every night.
All you need is a small kiln and some imagination. A fantastic and
affordable class is at William Holland Lapidary School.
Class there costs $250 a week (double occupancy) and it includes
room and board (and the food is great, buffet style , all you can
eat). I don’t know of anywhere else you can go for a weeks vacation
for $250, and learn a lapidary skill at the same time from one of the
worlds best. Look at some of the teachers listed and you will see
what I mean. Addy DePietro teaches a fantastic class (about 8 times a
year) in fused glass using Dichroic Glass.
Two sources for Dichroic glass are Austin Thin Films
http://www.dichromagic.com/ and Coatings By Sandburg
Good luck and good fusing…
Love and God Bless
