Fused Glass Jewellery making
Learn how to make pendants in beautiful fused glass. We’ll teach you how to cut the glass and compose your pieces to best effect, before firing.
We will work with coloured and dichroic (dichroic has a wonderful shimmer) glasses layering to produce different effects. We’ll bring you more materials (frits,stringers,transfers) and techniques throughout the day and by the end you will have made a number of cabachons (pendants) and, optionally, pairs of earrings, ready for firing. We can usually supply you with the silver plated ‘bails’ to fix to the back of your pieces, for a small extra cost. Your pieces are normally ready within a week. Suitable for beginners.
Our studio facilities are excellent and our teaching environment is relaxed, friendly and informal – as well as benefiting from beautiful views over ancient meadow land!
