That first one sounds like an art class, you sure you aren’t taking jewelry or stained glass or hot glass or ceramics?
Haha, I wish! Nah, it’s Heat Transfer Lab, so we’re just looking at how heat moves around in different situations. So a whole lot of heating up a metal rod and blowing air at it or waiting for it to cool down normally.
I did take a fused glass class this summer though, and painted some ceramics! It was way more fun because you actually got to see how things changed after the firing~
