This fused glass taster gives you a fun, creative and informative introduction to glass fusing. Learn something new and be surprised at your unique finished pieces. You will learn how to cut glass and then be introduced to a range of products - frits and powders, coloured glass, confetti, metallic flakes and more. You will be shown a number of techniques for applying the products and will make a trinket dish, window hanger and two jewellery pieces.
You will work with float glass for your trinket dish and window hanger and then move to Bullseye glass to make two jewellery pieces (choose from pendant, brooch, key fob, fridge magnet).
This is a great experience if you are looking for something to do with some friends or family. If you have been wondering whether glass fusing is for you, then this fused glass workshop is a great way to see whether you want to do more glass fusing without making a big commitment. Whatever your reason for coming, you can be sure you will have a morning of fun and creativity!

What a lovely morning spent with likeminded people taking part in the fused glass taster workshop! We can't wait to see our pieces once they've been in the kiln. It definitely made me want to pursue this craft. I would recommend it to anyone!
Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:I had a great morning with you all and loved seeing you all take the same student suggested theme to create your own individual unique flower meadows. I hope you will all be really pleased with the finished results.
