Fired glass is fascinating to work with and brings a unique perspective to 3 dimensional art. If you’ve never worked with glass before, we will show you the primary techniques involved in cutting, shaping and assembling glass ready for fusing.
There are many applications for glass art but given its ability to change with the light and produce beautiful colours and shadows, windows and outside in the garden is a common location.
