So you've already done an introduction course in lamp working glass and are wondering how to continue ?
This 2.5 day course offers you the opportunity to improve on your initial skills, learn new techniques and create a piece of glass jewellery.
Penny Carter our professional glass artist will begin the course with a brief refresher introduction based on the techniques you will have learnt on your taster day. You will then be designing and making your own necklace using your favourite colour combinations and techniques learnt. With just two students on the course Penny will be able to guide you personally demonstrating techniques which might be useful specifically for you.
Day two the first days beads will be annealed and ready to come out of the kiln. You will be able to file and clean the beads yourself. You will then have the opportunity to carefully make the right beads for your necklace and develop skills and colour knowledge. The aim is that by the end of day two you will have a good selection of beads to make into a necklace tomorrow.
Day three, (half day)
Creating the necklace. Stringing, measuring and knotting.
Under the guidance of Penny you will be able to finish your necklace and have plenty of beads to spare.
Please wear a long sleeved tea shirt which you don't mind if it gets spoilt. Occasionally little bit of glass ping off and can burn tiny holes.
