The advanced two-day weekend course provides an excellent opportunity to further explore fused glass jewellery with a focus on achieving a personal style and a professional finish.

We concentrate on designing and creating our own individual sheets of glass using transparent, opaque, dichroic and reactive combinations of glass with access to a wide variety of inclusions, frit, stringers, and other decorative media. We will work mainly in the Spectrum COE 96 (Oceanside) glass range.
 
You will learn:
  • To explore and combine appropriate combinations of glass (by COE)
  • To work with reactive glass combinations for new and interesting decorative effects
  • To understand kiln firing schedules for full fuse, tack fusing and fire polishing as well as decals and glass paints
  • To make your own personally designed sheets of glass on day 1 with which we will shape and create individual pieces of jewellery on day 2
  • To work with decals, fibre-board, glass media and silver foil and other inclusions
  • To use cold working studio equipment for fine cutting, drilling, sand blasting or etching to produce finished glass pieces for jewellery
  • To plan and present your designs to include the necessary findings to ensure your jewellery is wearable to a professional finish
  • We will problem solve together and work individually learning from each other’s experience and creativity
  • We’ll design and make a final piece by the end of day 2 using techniques we have covered
  • We’ll admire each others work and be encouraged and inspired by our creativity!

Plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits accompany our courses along with a friendly and inspiring studio atmosphere in which to learn new skills. We look forward to you joining us!
