glass before fusing

Friday 19th January 2018 10am – 5pm. Full day Workshop,  including a light sandwich lunch.

Workshop structure:

♦ Safety in the glass studio – it’s all common sense really!
◊ What is glass fusing? And other terms we use.
♦ Introduction to art glass; types & compatibility and the tools you will use.
◊ Learn to cut and handle glass with confidence – yes you can!fusing workshop
♦ Various design techniques

In the morning you will create up to 4 coaster or tile sized ‘projects’ (10cm square), two of which can be slumped into trinket dishes if you wish.
– These could be 4 the same, 2 pairs or all different and it’s your choice!
I will guide you through some techniques to create your own pieces; it may be abstract or pictorial, working with cut coloured glass, glass frits & stringers and/or glass powders – let’s see where your creativity takes you. By lunchtime you will be ready to ‘go large’.

After a light sandwich lunch (provided) and a break, we go back into the studio and you will aim to make a larger project(s) using the skills & ideas you have nurtured in the morning.
This may be a large plate or shallow dish, a light catcher/candle shield. Or you could choose to do a set of matching coasters with a dish, or 2 smaller plate/dishes – again the choice is completely yours.

You will place your work on kiln shelves ready for firing, we do the rest.

Firing; fusing & slumping, are overnight processes and will take place during the following 2 weeks. Your lovely fused glass can be collected after that.  If you can’t collect we’ll post out at cost, depending on size & weight.
