Description

Decorate your own lantern with fused glass panels in just
one day!

"...a perfect introduction to glass from a master artist and teacher. " - Nik

This one-day class will introduce you to the basics of glass tack fusing and you'll make your own coloured 28cm high lantern!

One-day glass fusing beginners lantern class for up to 5 people - Info.

The class begins with a discussion of the concept of glass tack fusing (sometimes called contour fusing), discussing common issues and a review of the materials you'll use.

You may like to come up with some basic design ideas, or we can help you on the day.
There'll be a wide range of glass frit, glass noodles and enamel pens for you to create your lantern glass panels from.

You'll be creating 4 decorated glass panels to replace the plain glass supplied with the lantern.
The glass panels will be fused as a single layer of fusible glass at around 750 deg.C, retaining the texture of the frit and other glass materials you use to make your design.

As the panels for your lantern need to be kiln-fired overnight and allowed to cool slowly, we'll contact you when fired so you can collect. We'll show you how to assemble the glass panels in to the lantern.

Your lantern is suitable for use with a block candle, a tealight or battery-operated nightlight or fairy lights.

Tack fusing is fast becoming a popular art form and this class will give you an inspiring introduction to the exciting world of fused glass!
