A fabulous introduction to fused glass - one day course

X

Description

This workshop offers a wonderful and comprehensive introduction to the art of kiln formed glass, using solely Bullseye transparent, opal and iridescent glass. You will gain an understanding of the materials, techniques and processes involved while producing your own masterpieces! Using sheet glass, frits, stringers and wire, you will be shown how to cut glass, add inclusions and create voids & bubbles. I will teach you, inspire you, provide all materials, while using professional tools for each person, give you refreshments, lunch and lots of mojo and guidance to create viable designs and finished pieces. No prior glass experience is necessary, just enthusiasm and a smile! For reassurance you are in safe hands, I have been practicing fused glass since 1996 as my full time occupation following my BA Degree in Three Dimensional Design in Glass. The studio has a total of 6 kilns, this is the real deal, all quality and professional, providing you with my knowledge & experience. My professional Glass Studio is located in the sunny coastal town of Worthing just a short walk from the sea front, it's easy to park nearby & the station is only a short stroll. These one day courses run every month on Friday and Saturdays. If there are 4 of you and you'd like to request your own date, just ask and I will create a date that suits you! Looking forward to seeing you here at my incredible glass studio really soon for a great day of creativity, fun, glass and giggles! :o)
