Depending on your level of experience we will briefly cover:

• Basic safety, tools & equipment.
• Basic terms; warm glass, what is fusing.
• The glass we use and others, compatibility & ‘accessory’ glass.
• Learn to cut and handle glass with confidence.
• What happens to glass in the kiln.
• Ideas and designs for simple gifts & decorations.

Having learnt the basics of cutting glass and creating fusible designs, you will be able to make several small fused glass items depending on how quickly you work and how complicated you want your designs to be. You could choose to make a set of 4 coasters, picture tiles, several decorations, a matching dish & coaster, individual trinket trays & dishes or a combination of these items.
I’ll be on hand with instructions and with advice & guidance; or bring your own ideas and inspiration.

Firing (fusing & slumping) of your items will take place after the workshop – during the following 2 weeks.  Once they are ready, you can arrange to collect or they can be posted – P&P will be charged depending on size & weight.
