This day (10.30am until 4pm) is a chance for you to get a little taster of what goes into making fused glass pieces. It looks at the basics of cutting and assembling glass as well as telling you a little bit about the nature of glass and how it reacts inside the kiln. It’s designed to be a fun introduction to fused glass.
You’ll first learn how to cut glass before being set free to design and make your own pieces. At the end of the day you’ll have made a glass hanging measuring 10cm by 15cm and a coaster. You’ll be given a wide range of colours to choose from in sheet, frit and stringer form as well as being able to experiment with inclusions such as copper foil. Don’t worry, these terms will be explained! Light refreshments such as tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided throughout the day, however please bring a packed lunch. Please wear comfortable casual clothes and closed toed shoes (ie no sandals). The class size is limited to 3 people, so you’ll have ready access to help and support to ensure you create something you are proud of. There is a minimum class size of 2 people, so if you’ve booked onto a day that has no other bookings, we can either arrange for you to join another class on another day, or you will be given a full refund (you’ll be notified if this situation arises, 5 days before the class date). Since your pieces will need to be fired in the kiln, you won’t be able to take them home on the day (firing can take over 12 hours). We can either arrange for a suitable time for you to come and collect them or I can post them back to you for an extra £3.50. * If none of the dates listed are suitable for you and you’re able to book at least two spaces, then do let me know and we can try and find another date that would work for us all. * Cancellations up to 4 weeks before the course 90% refund, after that date a 50% refund will be given up to 1 week prior to the course. If for whatever reason I cancel the course then I can either offer another suitable date for all of us, or I will refund you the full 100%.
