The half-day glass fusing course is designed to give total beginners an introduction to a new skill...and have some fun! At the end of the 3hrs, you will have created 4 coasters (10cm x 10cm) or fused glass wave (20cm).
I keep the glass fusing classes small, to make sure it's easy to give everyone as much input as is required. There is a 2m gap between all work-stations, to help maintain social distancing. We also provide visors (or you can wear your own mask), and there is lots & lots of hand sanitiser. All equipment & materials are disinfected before the start of each day.
You don't need to bring any materials, as everything required to design & create the coasters or wave is provided. The only thing you need to wear are closed shoes (e.g. no sandals), and to bring some lunch. We can also arrange lunch at a small cost, if required.
You'll start the day by creating a design - you can bring your own, or we can provide a design. You'll learn how to cut the glass & then build up your design which is then fired overnight. You will be able to collect your design the next day, or we can arrange to post it to you (you just need to cover the cost of the postage).
If you need to self-isolate, or new Covid restrictions are introduced, your course can be rescheduled.
Timings: 10am - 1pm

I attended this two day course on 8th & 9th February 2020 and I really enjoyed it. There were only two of us with our instructor Cass, and I made two pieces of stained glass, never having done this before. Cass is a talented artist and a very good teacher. The class was informal and friendly and I learned a lot in a short space of time. Cass is very patient and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. I would definitely recommend this class for beginners or a refresher course. Helen.
