About the Course
Learn how to work with frit, stringers and cut glass to create your own work of art. You will learn how to handle and cut glass safely and to understand how the process of fusing works.
You will then spend the afternoon making one or more pieces to your own design under our expert guidance and supervision.
4 students to a class to ensure plenty of attention.
We will fuse and shape your pieces in the kiln and can then post them to you or arrange for you to collect them within two weeks of your course.

An absolutely fantastic course, Jan and Alison are both welcoming and very knowledgeable on the subject, making for an informative and enjoyable day.
Plenty of theory, advice on tools and techniques, and enough time to get very 'hands on' with as much or little support as you need (as an absolute beginner I needed plenty!)
The course is suitable for all abilities, from complete novice to those with more experience in working with glass. I would definitely recommend it.

A fantastic day, love all things glass, thought I would try to make something and hopefully learn a new skill in the process.
The day is not disappoint, 3 of us on the course, all made to feel very welcome - chocolate cake as well!
As described on the website, morning spent learning the 'technical bits & how to use the various tools safely', afternoon, the fun bit making our chosen piece.
Will be going again! Looking forward to seeing the finished product once it comes out the kiln.

I completed this course earlier in the week. Fantastic!
Tuition is clear and easy to follow, and Jan is on hand to guide you through any techniques you may find tricky and offer alternatives where appropriate.
Can't wait to see the result. As a practicing fine artist, I enjoyed stretching my repertoire and discovering a new area of work to consider.
I would recommend this course for any stage in the artistic journey, from beginner to pro.

A great day learning the basics of glass fusion including some good theory of tools materials and techniques and interspersed with lots of practical work, developing techniques and the designing and making a large piece of my own, with good support from Jan. A thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing day, totally absorbed in creative glass work. The lunch was great too.
