Fused Glass for Beginners - One day workshop
Learn the basics of glass fusing whilst making one, or a selection of small pieces of your choice. With over 25 years experience in Glass, my classes are run in small groups with no more then three to a class. You will learn how to handle and cut glass safely and to understand how work with fusing using the materials available to you, including cut glass, frit, stringers and a good collection of hand made studio glass components. You will then have a fun afternoon making one or more pieces to your own design with plenty of guidance and advice. You will have the freedom to make one or several items in a style and shape of your choice. You can select from a range of bowls, window hangings, window curves and other shapes. Your pieces will be fused and slumped ready for collection or postage after the course. This is a great course with a very experienced tutor. Jan, has worked in Contemporary fused glass for more then 15 years and has been working with traditional stained glass for 25 years. She has mentored and taught a number of new artists their skills over the last 10 years and has recently completed working on a series of ecclesiastical commissions including a large single fused and hand painted panel created for the Holy Cross Hospital in Haslemere, Surrey. She has been teaching Fused glass for over 15 years to Adult Students in the UK and New Zealand, and will offer additional private tuition days and more advanced one on one courses by arrangement. The UK studio is located on the West Sussex Coast, in South Bersted, near Bognor Regis, and only 7 minutes from the main Chichester Bypass. I am easily accessible by car and public transport. The studio is situated in a beautiful garden setting behind my home. Full payment for courses is due on booking. Fees are non refundable within 60 days of your booking unless the place can be filled. You can also transfer your booking onto a friend, should for any reason, you be unable to attend.
What's included in the price?
I supply all tools, materials, and safety equipment required although you are welcome to bring your own if you have them. A steady stream of tea, coffee, cake and fruit is on hand throughout the day. Please bring a packed lunch. Fridge storage and a microwave can be provided. In the summer months, lunch can be eaten in the garden and during the winter, I have a dining area inside for you to use. Please wear comfortable clothing with layers and flat, covered, sturdy shoes. We have adjustable chairs available in the studio but you will likely be spending quite a bit of time on your feet.
