Learn the art of glass fusion in this compact 3 hour workshop. We’ll cover how to cut glass safely and how to prepare your piece for kiln firing. We’ll cover different glass products that are used for different effects, how to create colour changes and add detail including how to incorporate metal iso that you final piece can be hung around the home. If there is time at the end you can also create a small piece that could be used for a pendant.
There will be a small glass kiln on display so that you can take a look at a glass fushion kiln and watch as several pieces are loaded (these will be fired after the workshop). This workshop includes materials and notes and no glass fushion experience is needed. Final pieces will be posted out approximately 1 week after the workshop.
More than experience
You've never been behind the wheel like this. Under the guidance of our experienced potter you'll briefly be in the passenger seat but soon be taking control and creatingcups, bowls etc to be proud of. We keep class sizes small no more than 6 students to make sure you each get the proper attention. Each student will have their own wheel to work from and those with prior experience can get stuck in without the formal introduction. Our tutor will demonstrate wedging, centring clay and throwing along with other basics to get the juices flowing.
