Our workshops have been developed to provide a quiet day of creativity and gentle tuition and we hope the feeling of going home with a desire to learn more.
This one day course aims to equip you with the skills, tools and glass to create 3 projects
A Pair of 9.5cm x 9.5cm Coasters
A 8cm x 20cm Hanging Wall Plaque / Suncatcher
A piece of Dichroic Jewellery (Pendant, Earrings, Cuff Links, Brooch etc)
We start the workshop with a description of the basic tools used to score and cut glass and a short demonstration on how to break glass safely. You will then be given the opportunity to practice your cutting skills on some standard float glass and once you feel comfortable, we will cut and prepare some pieces of fusing glass, ready to build into your first design.
After a break for lunch we will carry on and learn a little more about what sort of materials can be fused into the glass and then cut and prepare glass pieces for your second and third project
Tools and glass for each student will be supplied and are included in the course price.
Because of the time associated with fusing glass, projects will be taken away to fuse in a kiln and brought back to the shop in time for the following Saturday
The course focus is always on fun and friendly creativity with lots of personal tuition from an experienced glass artist.
FOOD: Hot and cold refreshments will be provided throughout the day but we would suggest you bring your own lunch to the workshop. The marvelous Mulberry Tree Cafe is adjacent to the shop and if you wish you can purchase reasonably priced and always delicious food.
The course costs £55.00 to include materials, use of tools and refreshments throughout the day.
