If you have ever fancied having a go at Glass Fusing, then this is the workshop for you. Spend a whole day playing with glass, learn new skills, meet like-minded people, use your creativity to make something beautiful and totally unique.
During this full day workshop you will spend the morning learning the basics of glass cutting and the principles of glass fusing. We will also look at the different types of glass products and non glass inclusions available. You will then create 4 sample tiles using a variety of materials including sheet glass, glass powders/frit, stencils, glass stringers and metal inclusions.
After a break for lunch, we will design and make 2 further pieces - an S curve candle shade and a flat piece which you could frame or can be slumped into a plate for an extra charge......or if you would rather, spend the afternoon making further small pieces such as coasters or trinket dishes.
Please wear comfortable clothes and closed toe shoes - no sandals please.
There will be a break for lunch (45 min - 1 hour)
