This accessible form of glass fusing includes creating small flat pieces as well as using moulds to create small shallow bowls and plate shaped glass pieces, 10-15 cm sq.
Create your own designs by layering and placing different glass forms together with other materials. You will focus on making tiles with two types of glass and using colour. These can then be placed in moulds to shape tiles into dishes.
Use of tools and all materials are included in the cost and the course is suitable for all levels of participant.
Pieces made on this course will need to be fired in our kiln. This is a long process so will not be completed during the day. Participants will be invited to collect their pieces at a future date, this may be a number of weeks from the course date due to kiln space.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
Tools, materials, firing, good coffee, tea & biscuits

I hadn't done any painting since my school days (a long time ago!) and was pretty terrified but Janet walked everything through with such patience and encouragement I was able to get over my insecurities and paint a picture I was proud of! Everyone in the class I was in, had different insecurities but by the end everyone had painted a beautiful picture and felt confident that they could continue to grow! Her experience in painting flowers 'in the flesh' is well demonstrated and she knows how to bring out the delightful characters of every species; even the most tricky of characters! Her techniques for composition are genius!
Jill is a wonderful teacher with years of experience of glass art and teaching under her belt. Having never done anything like this before I was able to produce beautiful pieces in just a few short hours! The space at Cambridge Makers is also really lovely and welcoming and has excellent facilities.
