Intermediate glass fusing at the Cheshire School of Glass

Intermediate glass fusing at the Cheshire School of Glass

About the Course

The two-day intermediate course is an intensive programme for those who have completed the basic fusing course and are in search of more in depth knowledge of fusing. This includes working with precious metals, using different types of glass and looking at what can be achieved with them and a greater understanding of the kiln firing process.

This course will also show you how to make moulds for casting glass and also working with mould-making refractory materials for slumping into various shapes. Through exploring these techniques, you will have the opportunity to make a mirror with a glass frame surround, as well as a wall hanging or a bowl.

Jenny taught us all so much in 2 days. A wonderful experience and we all learnt so much. I had been on a basic fusing course prior to this one and would recommend both highly to anyone interested in learning kiln- based glass skills to anyone.

Having done a course for beginners, I wanted to learn more. The two day intermediate course was ideal. It provided me with a good mix of technical information and practical work, as well as allowing some time for homework and reflection. I was introduced to a number of techniques including complex glass cutting, casting, sand blasting, metal inclusions, silver stain and enamel work. Jenny is very enthusiastic and she made sure that I was able to carry out my designs. I came away with, what I think, are some fine pieces and desire to continue my glass explorations. The atmosphere in the studio was great and I was sorry to leave. Big thanks to Jenny and Steph for all their support!

The two days went so quickly doing this course. I learnt so much in such a short space of time. I would highly recommend doing this course to anyone before considering getting a kiln of their own. I have done both the basic fusing and intermediate ( with a discount of 10% after completion of one course). Great facilities and a brilliant teacher.

An excellent two day course full of useful information, lots of handouts and plenty of high end materials to experiment with. Jenny catered for eveyone's previous experiences in glass. Some of us had done courses with Jenny before, some elsewhere. A good mix of technical theory and practical to really give you a grounding of glass fusing. We made a lot of quality pieces in two day. I felt we all really had our moneys worth. Fab course. I recommend it.

I wanted to know how to use a kiln safely and fire the work. I have been on several courses before doing glass fusion. This course was incredible. Jenny gave us all so much information and handouts and made the whole daunting experience of buying a kiln and using it in your own home easier. Jenny's technical knowledge and support is wonderful. She is the lovliest lady and really goes out of her way to create extremely high quality courses. I have since booked Images in glass course because Jenny offers a discount for people who have been on previous courses.

The course was so full of information and really excellent! I had heard of Jenny's reputation through the glass company Pearsons Glass and the fact she teaches at a University, I knew she really knew her stuff. But she was modest and so approachable. I have a kiln and I am beyond the initial fusing stage so I wasn't sure what I could be taught. How wrong could I be? Jenny is inspirational. I recommend this course. I personally think you could do this course as a beginner as well as experienced. The other 3 ladies and myself had mixed ability and Jenny catered for all our levels.
