fusing glass – beginner’s class
One Day Introductory Glass Fusing Class usually held on a Saturday once a month. In this class you can produce a number of objects such as glass bowls of various shapes, coasters, wall hangings, jewellery, you will be allocated a space in the kiln on which to fire your day’s creations. The largest piece you can make will be up to a maximum of 30cm square or round, with a couple of smaller pieces too if you have time. We are generous with the materials that we allow you to use in comparison with other classes. As a result you cover more in a day than other classes can in an entire weekend or over a series of evening classes. And it’s not prescriptive, allowing for more creativity.
There is a limit of 4 people per workshop enabling faster learning.
The advantage of a small class is that you can experiment with many different effects and have an experienced adviser on hand at each stage. There is a minimum age limit for insurance purposes of 16 years or older unless accompanied by a guardian who is also booked onto the course.
Lessons are taught by Eleanor Watson & Richard Paton with over 20 years experience.
Areas covered: design, glass cutting, fused glass compatibility, firing cycles, many decorative techniques.
The fusing and slumping in the kiln will take place after the workshop and the results can be collected or posted, which is an additional cost of £30.
Price = £160 for the day, materials included (10:00am – 4:30pm).
There is a minimum age limit for insurance purposes of 16 years or older unless accompanied by a guardian who is also booked onto the course.
