Fused Glass Afternoon
From 1.30 until around 5pm
We start the course with a general introduction to glass fusing with a bit of technical and safety information thrown in.
We’ll spend the afternoon creating a 3D textured art glass panel or tile that we will fire for you in our glass kiln after the class and deliver to you within the following week. You’ll learn the basics of cutting and shaping glass in relation to using it to create texture and image. You’ll have access to a huge range of glass powders, frits, ribbons, stringers, confetti, nuggets and more to build up a beautiful and unique piece of art. Creativity and imagination is the key.
Fused Glass Day
From 9.30am until around 5pm
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, bubble paints, kiln papers, dichroics, confetti, frits and stringers. We’ll also experiment with kiln carving with carbon fibre board and rope to create relief.
During the course of the day, you’ll have the opportunity to create:
- Some pieces of fused glass jewellery that you can take home on the day
- A window hanging, tile or pair of coasters
- A large fused and slumped dish
The larger pieces will be fired and slumped over the course of the next few days and can be picked up or delivered to you at no extra cost.
