One Day Introductory Fusing Glass Class for beginners is usually held on a Saturday once a month. In this class you can produce a number of objects such as bowls of various shapes, coasters, wall hangings, jewellery – almost anything within the area of kiln space provided. We are generous with the materials we allow you to use in comparison with other classes. This is also the only day course in London if not the whole country to get through the same amount and often more than others manage in an entire weekend or over a series of evening classes.
Areas covered: design, glass cutting, glass compatibility, firing cycles, many decorative techniques.
Fused Glass Christmas Decorations
Come along and make your own fused glass Christmas Decorations! A seasonal fusing day course where you will learn to safely cut and shape glass and combine it into a range of festive shapes for full fusing or tack fusing, ready to hang on your tree or in your windows!
Working with fused glass is an adventure in colour, no previous experience is needed, just a willingness to play! In this exciting day course we will develop our skills in fused glass exploring decorative techniques to make decorations for your tree or perhaps candle holders.
We’ll use inclusions in the glass including copper, mica, bubbles, dichroic glass (the jewel-like glass with reflective and refractive qualities). We’ll provide information on where to buy supplies of tools and glass for the future. There is a limit of 6 people per workshop for faster learning and 1:1 attention.
If you love working with colour you will enjoy making and designing your own decorations it isn’t difficult and the combinations are limitless. Come and surprise yourself and rediscover your creativity!
The decorations your make will be fused overnight and you can either collect them from the studio by mutual arrangement (or we can post them out to you after the course if you prefer).
A great day out making gifts and beautiful festive decorations for your home! Happy Christmas!
