Description:

Have you ever wished you could make fused glass jewellery that is unique to you? That has your name and your story woven into the designs? If so, this advanced course is for you.

On our two-day weekend course, we lead you into a more personal approach to developing your creative and design skills in fused glass jewellery. This course will push you onto a new level of glass jewellery design and making with a focus on achieving a personal style. The course is aimed at students who have some prior experience of working with fused glass for jewellery and who wish to develop their design skills for a more professional finish.
We are booking now for November 2017.

From a place of personal inspiration, we will explore design, focussing on creating our own highly individual sheets of glass using transparent, opaque, dichroic and reactive combinations of glass, with the use of lots of inclusions, frit, stringers, and other decorative media. (We will work in Spectrum and Bullseye glass ranges)

You will learn:

To explore and combine appropriate combinations of glass (by COE)
To work with reactive glass combinations for new and interesting decorative effects
To understand kiln firing schedules for the techniques for full fuse, tack fusing and fire polishing as well as decals and glass paints
To make your own personally inspired and designed glass on day 1 with which we will cut, shape and make individual pieces of jewellery from on day 2
To work with decals, fibre-board, glass media, frit powders and other inclusions
To make our own elements for inclusion in glass
To use studio equipment for fine cutting, drilling to produce finished glass pieces for jewellery
To plan and present your designs to include the necessary findings to ensure your jewellery is wearable to a professional finish
We will problem solve and work individually and as a peer group to learn from each other's experience and creativity
Design and make a final piece(s) by the end of day 2, using techniques we have covered
Admire each others work and be inspired by our creativity!

A weekend to push the boundaries of your design, creativity and personal style and give you the opportunity to use the studio's cold working tools too.

What's included in the price?

All materials are included, as well as plenteous supplies of tea, coffee and biscuits.

You may bring your own lunch or go out to enjoy the many cafes on Stoke Newington Church Street at lunchtime.

There will also be a supply of jewellery findings with which to finish your pieces to take home.

Eleanor Watson is a great teacher. She combines serious learning with great fun in a creative atmosphere. I'm a beginner and I love the glass fused jewellery that I created under Eleanor's expert guidance. Her post-course follow up is second to none. Materials supplied were quality and generous.
I'm looking forward to the next one. Highly recommend.
Thank you Eleanor.

This was a brilliant course which really moved my creativity and skills forward. The class is small enough that you can get the help you need while big enough to have a fun, creative atmosphere. The pieces I produced are remarkable - far better than I dreamed were possible. Eleanor is incredibly helpful and supportive and willing to share her expertise. Highly recommended!

This is my 3rd course with Eleanor and as usual it was excellent. She is a friendly and knowledgable tutor and has a wealth of knowledge that she eagerly shares. She guides without influencing your work so the pieces you create are yours and original. There is an abundance of materials you can have a go with, so all you need is a bit of imagination and you are set. I would encourage anyone who has thought about trying to make jewellery to go and book a course with Eleanor. I had a brilliant time.

I had a wonderful time on the advanced fused glass jewellery making course, taught by Eleanor Watson. She is a skilled and knowledgeable tutor, who brings the best out of the participants with a friendly mixture of encouragement and advice. All materials were supplied in generous amounts.

I came away with some beautiful pieces of jewellery and recommended the course without hesitation.
