New to glass fusing and would like some one to one support...or maybe you want to go to the next level with help where you need it.. then this course is just the thing for you!
Choosing from a large selection of fusing art glass and all the equipment we have at Tregarth studio you will have the whole day to make a statement piece or several smaller pieces with one to one tuition and my undivided attention (!) But don't worry several students have lived to tell the tale and have been thrilled with what they have achieved! :)
To keep us both safe, all students are required to wear the face shield provided all day except when eating lunch and adhere to social distancing. You will also be asked to confirm that you have had no contact with any one suffering from Covid 19 or been asked to isolate in the 2 weeks prior to the course date.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
You will be provided with refreshments and homemade cookies on arrival while we cover the health and safety policies and discuss your ideas. We have a large selection of clear and coloured art glass, frits, stingers, glass enamel paint, decals and inculsions, kiln carving and selection of slumping moulds for bowls and dishes and lots of ideas to help you achieve your chosen design. If you have a project in mind or need some help deciding on what to make, this course can be tailormade to suit you!
You will be shown how to cut glass with plenty of practise before you start cutting art glass for your design. You can choose to make one large piece or several smaller pieces with lots of advice and help on hand all day, just for you.
Lunch is a two course meal usually served around 1.00pm but the beauty of a one to one is the day is yours so we can be flexible. Some students have said it was worth coming for the food alone!
The afternoon will be spent finishing your designs ready to place in the kiln. The pieces will be fired and ready for collection or posted on to you with an additional cost to cover post and packing.
