Relax, chat, have fun and create something beautiful and timeless. This course is a hands on workshop with no experience required. We will be working in the old stables at Lamport Hall. I will provide you with step by step tuition including demonstrations, hints & tips & all the basics of working in fused glass.
You will make at least 5 items in this workshop with an opportunity to make more for the extra cost of materials. Starting with a pair of simple coasters and a sun catcher, and you will also work on two larger pieces in the afternoon, working with frit, stringers, millefiori and sheet glass to create a stand is alone sculptural piece and a functional candle stand or dish.
There is an option to extend this course to a second day where you can continue the focus on cutting curves and working with other materials to create more interest and depth in your work. In the morning we will make a kiln carved piece using fibreboard and glass. You will use decals and accessory glass to make a pair of birds to hang in a window or on a tree. Working with different glass frits, 2mm and 3mm bullseye glass, you will learn how to layer your glass to create depth in a stunning picture that you can have framed or a crashing wave to be mounted on a wooden stand. You will have access to glass Frits, millefiori, confetti, stringers, glass paint and much more.
We will also take some time to discuss kiln work and kiln schedules.
