Introduction to Glass Fusing with Enamels - Full Day Workshop

X

Description

Learn to use glass enamels! Steve is one of only a few professional glass artists choosing to work solely with enamel powders to colour the glass (as opposed to using pre-coloured glass such as Bullseye). 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? After a health & safety briefing, Steve will be demonstrating the techniques he uses, from preparing the glass to applying the enamels, through to assembling the piece ready for the kiln. There will be opportunity for practicing the application of colours in the morning, and then a break for lunch. Upon return to the Studio you will then have the rest of the afternoon to make your wall hanging. Steve will provide as much personal assistance and guidance as you need. Who else will be there? Places will be strictly limited to FOUR per workshop to allow everyone ample access to Steve’s expertise and amplresocial distancing. 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 local surroundings or you can bring some ideas with you. Your piece will be fired in the kiln the same day, and will then be ready for you to collect early afternoon the next day (or we can send it to you via courier for an additional charge if you are not able to collect in person). Where is it? At Steve’s fully equipped studio in Totnes in the picturesque South Hams area of South Devon. Where can I stay? We will be pleased to do all we can to help you make the most of your visit to Devon. Please just ask if you would like details of recommended accommodation in or around Totnes.
