Fused Glass Courses

Lunch and refreshments are provided on all courses, as are all materials and equipment. Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements or allergies. Please wear closed toe shoes for safety reasons. Whilst we strive to be totally inclusive, the Stonefield Glass studio is attached to our family home and we are unable to accommodate some wheelchairs. Please get in touch to discuss your specific requirements.

Please note that courses will only run with a minimum of two participants. If your booking is the only one for a date then I will contact you to arrange a date change or a full refund.


Fused Glass Jewellery Day

We start the day with a general introduction to glass fusing with a bit of technical and safety information thrown in.

You’ll learn the basics of cutting and shaping glass in relation to small detailed jewellery pieces. We then go on to explore the effects of using different glasses, micas, inclusions and oxides, dichroic glass, confetti, frits and stringers. Creativity and imagination is the key.

We’ll look at different techniques for turning the cabochons you produce into pendants, earrings, brooches and other items of jewellery including working with different jewellery findings, fixings, balls and wireworks. We’ll use a combination of the microwave pot kiln and the Kilncare electric kiln, but anything fired in the electric kiln will need to be picked up or posted (£4 fee) to you the following day. By the end of the day you’ll have produced beautiful glass jewellery pieces to wear with pride and wow your friends and family.


Fused Glass Introduction Day

We start the day with a general introduction to glass fusing with a bit of technical and safety information thrown in.

You’ll learn the basics of cutting and shaping glass for the kiln and we’ll explore various creative techniques including layering and stacking, using metal inclusions, micas, oxides, glassline pens, kiln papers, dichroics, confetti, frits and stringers. We’ll also experiment with kiln carving with carbon fibre board and rope to create relief.

You’ll create two pieces – one hanging piece using inclusions, micas and Glassline pens, and an art glass platter. Your pieces will be fired overnight in our Kilncare electric kiln and will be ready to be picked up the following afternoon. If you’d prefer we can send your pieces on to you by courier (this costs £10 – you can arrange and pay this on the day of your workshop).
