Weekend design and make – glass fusion workshop

Glass Fusing Workshop – a Two-day Making and Design Workshop

Day One

In this workshop you will gain an understanding for the different techniques, working with Bullseye glass.

In the morning session you will learn how to cut glass, emboss shapes, make inclusions and decorate your work with frits and stringers.

We will take a break during which I will provide a buffet lunch.

In the afternoon, you will create a flat panel, using what you have learned, ready for firing in the kiln overnight.

Day Two

To start the day, I will unload the kiln so we can review the pieces we made on Day One.

Following this you will learn some advanced cutting techniques, after which you will design and make two new, original pieces. Later, these two items will be fired in the kiln.

At the end of the day’s session, one of your pieces will be refired and ‘slumped’ over a shaped mould to form either dish or a decorative wave.

Fired works can be collected from the studio at a later date, or posted to you by arrangement.

Cost: £280 per person
