About the Course

Bullseye coloured glass is made up from a variety of basic chemicals. When some of the glasses are combined with one another or with certain metal foils, the chemicals interact and produce special “reactive” effects.

These effects can range from subtle to dramatic and can prove quite versatile in your art and design. Learn more about the basic chemistry behind these effects and how to use them to enhance your work.

In this class you will look at samples of reactions between different “coloured” glass, why this happens and how you can create the effects, using the chemical composition of the glass. You will then make your own samples, and a couple of coasters * using many forms of glass and foils.

Basic understanding of fused glass and cutting skills achieved at taster session are beneficially to this course.

Max 4 per session, please contact me for more details. Additional Dates can be arranged to suit. More photos to follow

Please note: Workshops at my studio at B Box Studio, Newcastle upon Tyne are run at times to suit for small groups or on a one to one basis. If you have booked a suitable time and date could you please ensure that if for any reason you cannot make it that you let me know.
Time slots especially at weekends will have been specifically planned and I will have made family arrangements to cover. I would therefore appreciate advance notice or contact prior to the workshop if you can’t attend. Thank you.
