About the Course
Glass Fusing & Kiln Forming Introductory course - 3 days
10am - 5pm
The brand new Hart Glass studio has been holding glass fusing & kiln forming workshops from September 2017. We’re in the same location in Cavendish, Suffolk, but now with three new dedicated areas of work; a large light and airy cutting room, kiln and cold working room and mould making room courses are better than ever!
We will be running three day courses quarterly - see dates above or get in touch - for four students per workshop. So, if you have ever wondered, ‘How do they do that?’ or thought, ‘I’d love to have a go!’ this is your perfect chance to give that creative spark a chance to shine. If you’re a beginner with burning curiosity, or you’ve done some glasswork and you’d like to indulge your skills, a relaxed studio environment guarantees a fun, informative and inspirational experience.
This introductory course aims to give you a taste of a wide variety of glass fusing & kiln forming techniques and a clear understanding of the processes.
