This course is aimed at people who would like to know how to make fused glass. You will be shown how to cut sheet glass, design your piece and make it. Basic fusing schedules will be covered. You will be using Bullseye sheet glass, frit, stringers and confetti in a wide variety of colours. The course can be undertaken by children over the age of 14 as long as they are aware that they will cut their own glass. Younger children should try the "No-Cutting Required" course.
The 3 hour course will be from 9.30 am - 12.30 pm or 1 pm - 4 pm and is really a taster session.
6 hour course (£150) would be 10 - 4 pm. We will have time to go over fusing shedules in more depth as well as produce more pieces on this course. Ideal for someone hoping to do this themselves in the future. You can either follow my teaching session or you can make a piece you have thought about and want to make.
Light refreshments will be served as and when required.
You can bring a packed lunch with you, or there are several pubs in the area that will serve lunch.
3 hour course you can make 1/2 coasters or plate. The 6 hour course you should be able to make a coaster, ring/soap dish and plate in the time permitted and cutting
