Glass Fusing Course - Taster Day
Contact course provider
About the Course
We offer a one day introductory class in the art of fusing glass. You will learn how to cut glass and then design your piece before assembling it in the kiln ready to be melted and fused together.
This course runs regularly throughout the year. Please see our website for specific dates.
What does the course cover?
Your tutor will begin with a lesson in basic glass cutting. For those who are beginners, don't worry, we will have you cutting sheets of glass with confidence in minutes! For those who have cut glass before, we may show you a new trick or two!
We aim to give students a taste of the exciting possibilities in glass fusing. You will design a plate, cut your glass pieces and assemble them in one of our excellent Kilncare Glass kilns to be fused. Your pieces will be fired overnight and will be ready for you to collect the next day, or if you prefer they can be sent out to you at no extra cost.
What do I need to bring?
Just yourself and a pair of sturdy closed-toed shoes. All of your glass, materials, tools will be provided.
We will provide a delicious cold lunch from Pret a Manger as well as light refreshments throughout the day. Please let us know in advance if you have any special dietary requirements. We will do our best to cater to everyone but this cannot always be guaranteed.
