About the Course
Create your very own piece of fused glass art to treasure forever.
This glass art workshop will start with a brief explanation about the types of glass and the different firing schedules to create different effects. (Don't worry, you won't be bombarded with technical information)
You will be provided with enough glass to create two sun catchers and a larger glass art piece approx 18cm x 15cms. Both pieces have been pre fired giving you the perfect blank canvas. I am now offering the option to create a set of four coasters as well as the two smaller practice pieces.
Materials include various types of glass; pre fused cabochons, glass sheet, decals and frit (crushed glass in various grades) As the workshop is held at Fired Works, Chalfont St Peter where you will find plenty of inspiration in the gallery. Marie will be on hand to assist and guide should you require it.
The firing will be a tack fuse which will leave some interesting texture to your finished piece. Once this is cooled, a further day in the kiln and your piece will be melted around a mould to create a free standing curve. If you prefer you can leave this flat to have framed or to put in a stand.
The glass workshop will take approximately 2 - 3 hours and all refreshments are provided. There is no rush to finish your pieces in the timescales so you may take as long as you need.
