Fusing glass taster day

X

Description

Selected by the Michelangelo Foundation, Laura’s glass orchids were exhibited at the 2018 inaugural Homo Faber exhibition held in Venice. Now recommended by the Homo Faber guide as a Master Artisan in the field of glasswork, Laura upholds the Michelangelo Foundation’s ethos with her glass fusing courses; aiming to ignite a passion for the medium and inspire new practitioners to perpetuate crafting excellence. We begin the day at 10am with a brief lesson on scoring and breaking sheet glass, followed by a demonstration using the edge griding machine. You can choose from a variety of pre-made patterns, or better still create your own freestyle. The day is yours to play! With dozens of colours in sheet glass, powders and frits, you can let your imagination run wild. As the day progresses, you’ll learn about how different glasses behave under heat, giving you the best chance to achieve your ideas. We aim to have the work ready by 3pm. I’ll give a brief talk at the kiln, describing the glass fusing stages of the firing programme. You will be able to collect from midday the following day. Happy to post. WARNING: Glass fusing can be addictive. Prepare for withdrawal symptoms! Laura Hart’s award winning glass flowers, butterflies and ‘Picasso’ works have exhibited in premier galleries around the world; Corning Museum USA, Etienne Gallery Netherlands, Vessel Gallery London, ‘Glass Life Forms’ 2016, Tresor Craft Switzerland. Collect 2017/18/19/20. 'Homo Faber', Michelangelo Foundation 2018, Venice. National Glass Prize 2021. British Glass Biennale 2022. Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition 2023.
