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.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

Want to review this course?

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.
