What will I learn? Steve is one of only a few professional glass artists choosing to work with enamel powders to colour the glass (as opposed to using pre-coloured glass). He has developed his own techniques for working with these enamels, creating unique patterns and effects. Steve will share these techniques with you, and take you step- by-step through the glass-fusing process so that you can create your own unique piece of fused glass art.
Whats the plan? On day one, as well as glass cutting and mould making, you will be able to make several sample pieces whilst you practise your enamel application techniques. These samples will serve as ‘drafts’ for the main piece that you will be making on the following day. They will be fired in the kiln on the first night so that you can see how they have turned out on the morning of day two.
On day two you will be able to focus all day on making your main piece which can be up to 60cm x 30cm in size. This course is all about design progression, and learning from your first attempts with the samples – assessing what has worked, and what maybe didn’t come out quite as you expected – so that you can make appropriate adjustments in your finished design.
Who else will be there? Places will be strictly limited to five per workshop to allow everyone ample access to Steve’s expertise.
What can I take home with me? You will be making your own unique glass wall-hanging, to a maximum size of 30cm x 60cm. You can create any design that you wish, perhaps taking inspiration from our coastal surroundings or you can bring some ideas with you. You will be making samples on the first day, which you will also be able to take home. Your fired pieces will be ready for you to collect by Midday on the Sunday (or we can send it to you via courier for an additional charge if you are not able to collect in person).
Whats the cost? The cost of each place is £450. This must be paid in full to secure your place. We accept payment by credit/debit card over the phone, by cheque or by bank transfer.
Can I bring a friend? To allow everyone plenty of space to work only those paying for a place will be able to attend during the day; however your friends and family are welcome to come in at the end of the day to see the fruits of your labours before your piece is fired in the kiln, and again the following day for the grand kiln-opening!
Where is it? At Steve’s fully equipped studio in the heart of St Davids in the picturesque coastal Pembrokeshire National Park. The address is The Steve Robinson Glass Studio, Goat Street, St Davids, Pembrokeshire SA62 6RQ.
Where can I stay? We will be pleased to do all we can to help you make the most of your visit to Pembrokeshire. Please just ask if you would like details of recommended accommodation in or around St Davids.
