Description

Fused Glass Ocean Wave - make your own glass Ocean Wave art approx 250mm wide on this 1-day workshop suitable for beginners.

Discover the pleasure of glass fusing while making your very own Ocean Wave glass art - complete with wooden display base.
The materials and tools needed to create your own Wave are provided, with enough time to make a piece like the ones shown.

You'll be using float glass, coloured frit and glass you'll crush with a hammer to make the water 'spray' for your wave.
You'll start by cutting a number of glass shapes out of glass under our expert guidance.
You'll then lay out the first layer, and build up the overlaping second layer to ensure a strong end result.

Then it's time to add coloured glass frit and crushed clear glass if desired to create your own individual sea-themed piece of glass art.
After firing you'll be able to collect your glass wave and attach it to the base which we'll supply.
You're now ready to enjoy your art at home!

This class will give you a brief introduction to glass cutting, basic tack fusing, including the difference between the types of glass you can fuse with, and some of the essentials of kiln operation and is suitable for all levels, especially beginners.

This class runs from 10-30 to (approx) 5pm at our Northants studio just outside Towcester
