An introduction to a wonderful array of glass in many forms. Learn how to cut, shape and assemble materials to create beautiful pieces of your own. Become familiar with different firing techniques and fuse finishes. Design 2D and 3D projects such as coasters, light catchers, bowls, platters, plant pot stakes or jewellery.

Want to review this course?

As I was new to glass fusing, I struggled with glass cutting on first day, but soon picked it up on second.
At the end of the 2 day course, I had learnt, how to cut glass, different types of glass, and what they are used for, and how they are likely to come out when fired.
I really enjoyed it and was pleasantly surprised with my end result.
Great hosts, in a lovely countryside setting, offering tea, coffee and biscuits with lunch included in the fee.
Look forward to improving on my next course.
