Glass fusing is the technique used to bond glass pieces together by melting the glass at high temperature in a kiln.
Amazing creative pieces can be made by using this technique. Glass fusing is an accessible and rewarding art form for all levels and all abilities.
So immerse yourself in the joy of glass fusing for 2 full days. This weekend is designed to introduce you to the limitless creative possibilities of the technique. Whether you’re new to glass fusing or have tried it before, this weekend is designed for you.
You will complete a number of pieces using different fusing techniques and will be involved in actual kiln preparation and firings.

Loved every minute of it and could easily have stayed for another two days! Jude let’s you freestyle as much as you want while providing the inspiration and the help on techniques.
It feels so creative yet very accessible. I left with lots of pieces I’m turning in to jewellery.
Jude demonstrated different glass fusing techniques that we later practised. She encouraged imagination and experimentation in a guided and supported environment. I learnt a great deal from her knowledge and from her approach. I would thoroughly recommend Jude’s glass fusion courses.
