Two day glass course
10am – 4pm
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 with coloured glass.
Break for lunch.
In the afternoon, you will create a flat panel, using what you have learned, ready for firing in the kiln overnight.
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.
One of your pieces will then be ‘slumped’ over a shaped mould to form either dish or a decorative wave in a subsequent kiln firing.
Fired works can be collected from the studio at a later date, or posted to you by arrangement.
No previous experience required.
