About the Course

Working from my home studio in Wells this course is designed to give the student an introduction to borosilicate glass as a material and how to pattern and sculpt marbles.

Starting with simple control and manipulation the student will learn through a combination of examples and hands on guidance.
Beginning with how to shape a clear glass marble we'll then try some different decorative techniques before moving on to a vortex marble for a final piece in the afternoon.

Borosilicate glass is generally slower to work than other types of glass due to the temperature required to melt it, however it's consistency makes it perfect for shaping marbles.
You can expect to make 3-4 marbles during the course.

Price is per person and the course if for up to 2 people.

What's included in the price?

All tools and materials are provided.
Tea and coffee obviously included, who can work without it?

All the glass will need to be annealed and cool down overnight so can either be collected the following day or posted free of charge.
