Kiln glass classes take the form of either Glass fusing and slumping or kiln carving. Glass fusing uses the kiln to create imagery in glass. In this session we will learn how to produce simple yet affective pieces of fused glass. A number of the pieces we produce can then be slumped to create functional works of art for the home, whilst the others can be used as jewellery or stand-alone works of art. You will learn about the use of frits, paints and foils to create different effects. Kiln carving is a type of kiln forming. The process uses materials such as fibreboard, fibre paper and plaster to add texture and relief to glass. In this class we will learn to create moulds for kiln carving out of a number of different materials. The course will introduce you to glass cutting techniques, firing schedules and cold working.

Want to review this course?

I booked onto this course with no knowledge of glass. A thoughrally enjoyable and informative day. My wife and I love our new glass bowl which I made. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone wishing to learn more about kiln glass. Its a good idea to take images as inspiration as I found this really helped me to come up with ideas. I would also recommend the local bakery for lunch.
