Glass fusing for beginners is a workshop which will provide you with hours of creative fun. Come along yourself, get together with some friends or purchase as a special gift for someone who loves to try new crafts.
On this course you will spend the day creating 4 wonderful products to be proud of. We will begin at 10am with a brief introduction to health and safety and this will be followed by your first task. I will concentrate on teaching you how to cut glass effectively, clean it and apply extra features to make a sun catcher.
Task two will be something a little smaller and more delicate – jewellery. You can practice your cutting and joining skills in this task by designing and creating either a pendant, brooch or pair of earrings. You will also be given the chance to use dichroic glass which will give some beautiful effects to wow your friends.
After a short break we will move onto our 3rd piece – a coaster/tile. Although a straightforward shape, I will demonstrate how you can add copper inclusions into your piece to make them extra special.
Finally, after lunch you will make your last and largest piece of the day. You will have a choice of product which can be discussed at the time based on your earlier experiences and what you feel comfortable doing.
The course will end at 3pm – please note you will not be able to take your products away with you on the day as they will need to go into the kiln for several hours. Products can be collected the following week. Alternatively they can be delivered by post.
Price: £70 including all materials and kiln firing
Drinks and snacks will be provided but you will need to bring your own packed lunch
