Make a fused glass free-standing curve

X

Description

Make your own unique fused glass curve that you can stand up freely on a flat surface to enjoy your glass creativity.

You will create a curved design on glass using a range of different glass forms including frits, powders, confetti, coloured glass, mica powders, glass paints, glow in the dark powder and more.

Your piece will be fired flat to fuse all the elements together, and then a second firing will bend the glass so that the finished piece can be stood vertically on a flat surface. This will allow light to shine through from a window or candle to bring out the colours in your glass.

You will work with float glass and float compatible materials.

This workshop is for both the experienced and complete beginners.

I had a most enjoyable morning on Thursday, learning so much and creating 4 panels for a lovely lantern in Gen's fused glass class.
The atmosphere was congenial, knowledgeable, fun and learning a new skill as a beginner was great.
Thanks for the experience and I'm looking forward to seeing the finished result!

Had a wonderful morning with Genevieve yesterday making panels for a lantern. Her workshop is in the huge basement of her house, and was easy to find.
It was very well organised and Genevieve is very professional, knowledgeable and professional - I ran a bit over time but this wasnt an issue. Im looking forward to going to collect my fired pieces in a week or so. Would highly recommend.

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

Thank you for being such a fun student! I had a great morning and can't wait to give you your lantern complete with your four unique fused glass panels.

What a lovely morning spent with likeminded people taking part in the fused glass taster workshop! We can't wait to see our pieces once they've been in the kiln. It definitely made me want to pursue this craft. I would recommend it to anyone!

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

I had a great morning with you all and loved seeing you all take the same student suggested theme to create your own individual unique flower meadows. I hope you will all be really pleased with the finished results.
