Our ever popular introductory day to making fused glass for complete beginners!
We will teach you to cut and combine glass safely to make your choice of a range of beautiful items for your home. From bowls and dishes, to coasters and colourful panels, candleholders, plates and floral slumps, we'll show you lots of different decorative techniques, inclusions and glass media and you can decide how you want to use them on the pieces you design and make.
The course is limited to a maximum of 4 people at a time within the studio (plus the tutor) in line with the requirements of national Covid-19 guidance for social distancing. We will supply you with new face visors (which we require everyone to wear whilst inside the studio) with optional face masks and gloves if you want to wear them too.
Items will be fired and slumped into our moulds after the course is over with the option to collect them from the studio or to have them posted to you (in the UK only) for an additional fee of between £15 -£20 for p+p depending on the weight and size of your parcel. If you are making larger items, we would recommend you collect your pieces in person.
We will be working with Oceanside COE96 glass (previously Spectrum 96 on this course).
An exciting and creative day, learning new skills, you'll be surprised at your lovely results!
Please note we will be working at benches most of the day so we will be standing up to cut and combine our glass. We can provide stools to sit on in between times. Please consider this when booking.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
The course is open to adults over the age of 16 years, and no previous experience is necessary.
All materials and firings are included in the course fee.
We will supply tea, coffee, herbal teas (in disposable cups), and biscuits too.
