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 and make a set of 4 coasters that will be fused overnight in one of our excellent Kilncare kilns. The second project will be a larger piece that will again be fused overnight. It will then be slumped into an S curve shape using our creative paradise moulds. Your pieces will be ready for you to collect after 3 days, 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.
