Introduction to glass fusion afternoon half day taster (beginners)

X

Description

Book in for a 3 hour AFTERNOON beginners session which will introduce you to the art of glass fusion in a relaxed, friendly group.

In this taster workshop, we will look at the different kinds of glass used in glass fusion then move on to design and make your own piece of fused glass.

You will learn how to cut and assemble your glass pieces then leave them to be fired in the kiln. You will need to return a few days later to collect your pieces of work - or they can be posted to you at additional cost (please let me know if you think you may need this option when booking so I can let you know more details about P&P).

You can expect to make the equivalent of two coaster-sized pieces of fused glass - but you don't have to keep to coaster size and/or shape!

You will be able to choose from the following with each of two pieces:
* Coaster
* Trinket Tray shape
* Tea Light shape (self-standing in front of tealight)
* Picture Panel (square - held in wooden stand for small additional charge on day)
* Suncatcher with hanger for window display
* Set of windchimes
* Mini bunting

If you prefer, you will alternatively be offered to select a slightly different method of construction for the fused glass and make small decorative hanging glass designs such as birds, animals, and seasonal shapes such as trees, eggs, gnomes, bunnies and more.

This requires more cutting of shapes from the glass but adds to your skills and practice!

You don't have to choose in advance - see the options and samples at your workshop. You can always go half and half if you can't make up your mind :)

You can work from your own ideas for designs (within the size parameters explained in the workshop), or you can use my ideas for inspiration, or follow my step by step guides if you prefer.

Maximum number on workshop is 4 people (adults only please)

Hot and cold drinks are included throughout the session.
