Fused Glass Jewellery Taster course at Rainbow Glass Studios (half day)

X

Description

Our exciting new taster half-day course in fused glass jewellery is for anyone with "magpie tendencies" who loves a bit of sparkle and shine! Perhaps you have always wanted to try working with fused glass on a small scale, but not known where to start? Our half-day taster course will get you on the right sparkly track! During our time together, you will learn to confidently cut small shapes in glass using traditional tools, and go on to combine them to make the following: Stud earrings A pendant with a bail (on a chain or choker) A bracelet with a fused glass cabochon A brooch or pair of cuff links Perhaps you would like to make a matching set, or explore a variety of different glass or techniques? There will be dozens of examples on display in the studio on the day for you to learn and to choose from. It’s a fabulous introduction to small scale fused glass, making jewellery you will be proud to wear! No previous experience needed, for adults over 16 years old. Or children over 12 if also accompanied by a fee paying parent or guardian. Please note the course takes place in a working glass studio, so we will be standing at benches whilst working. Stools are available in between times. Unfortunately the studio is unable to accommodate wheelchair access. Thank you.

What's included in the price?

All materials are provided including the glass, a supply of dichroic glass, jewellery findings on which to mount your glass creations once fused. We also give you a pack of the recommended adhesive to assemble your jewellery afterwards. We will post your glass to you (for a nominal fee of £5 to UK addresses only) once fired, as the glass fusing process takes 24 hours, so your glass will follow you home once it is ready. Plentiful tea, coffee and herbal teas with biscuits will also be available too.

I'm Eleanor, I'm a jeweller and glass maker and I love colour, texture, design and pattern. I work across all of these in a variety of media including fused glass, enamel, silver, copper, anodised aluminium creating my one-off jewellery and glass pieces. I retrained as a jeweller in 2012, and I work with my husband at Rainbow Glass Studios where I thoroughly enjoy teaching weekend courses in glass and enamelling. I believe everyone has creativity and I want to encourage you to explore yours!
