Description


Further  Fusing Workshop – half day

This workshop is designed for those who have had some experience of cutting glass (a taster with me or a starter workshop somewhere else) as you will cutting your own designs from larger pieces of sheet glass.

I supply absolutely everything you will need (equipment & materials) to make your own beautiful fused glass; just bring yourself (in comfy shoes!).

Workshops all take place at our small, well equipped studio in Worthen, Shropshire SY5 9HN, google maps Fusing Ideas Glass
Class sizes are small usually max 3, which means a good student to teacher ratio.
Unleash your inner creative, learn a little, have fun and, above all, enjoy yourself!

 

Workshop structure:

You can choose what you make using a variety of techniques:

♦ Frits and Powders
◊ Reactive Glass
♦ Inclusions
◊ Kiln Carving
♦ Tac fusing and texture
◊ Cutting to fit
♦ Layering glass to create new colours and tones

Those who have done my taster workshop (or a starter somewhere else) will have had a brief introduction to some of these techniques, in this workshop you can develop your skills further, or learn new, and you will be working with larger sheets of glass.
With small classes I can structure your workshop for you; so, before you come we will discuss what techniques, from the above list, you would like to use. Call first if you would like to talk through the options before booking.

You create and place your projects in the kiln ready for firing, I 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 I’ll post out via DPD depending on size & weight – £7.65 or £11.25.
