This full day private workshop taught on a one-to-one basis can be scheduled for any day of the week and can be flexible time wise within the hours of Creek Creative Studios. I recommend 10.30-3.15 with 45 mins for lunch but you are welcome to amend this to suit your plans.
I am happy to teach anyone from complete beginners to advanced glass fusers and can provide guidance on many topics including introduction to glass fusing; how to use your kiln; slumping; draping; using frit; texture in glass; glass reactions and many, many more. If you have a topic in mind, please contact me and I will let you know if I'm comfortable teaching that subject.
As the tutor, I provide many different forms of support including technical and artistic guidance (if asked) and ideas - whatever you need from me.
The one-to-one environment gives us the chance to discuss all things glass, adapt my teaching to your interests and teach beyond the boundaries of traditional class subjects. I'm passionate about glass fusing and love to meet anyone with an interest in the artform.
I aim to ensure my workshops provide friendly and supportive environments for all students. Everyone is welcome from ages 16+, provided you are able to work relatively independently and have reasonable dexterity. For children below 16, they are welcome to attend at the discretion of the tutor and must be accompanied by an adult (not participating in the class). Please contact Yvonne at CKJ Artisan in advance of booking using the 'Chat with the Maker' button.
Yvonne is an experienced fused glass tutor and artist at Creek Creative Studios in Faversham, Kent. Disabled students are very welcome. The classroom has disabled access (toilets and cafe require walking up a slope or stairs). Blue badge parking available on request. If you wish to discuss your specific requirements with me I'd be very happy to speak to you and will do my best to provide you with the support you need for your day.
Please note this is a face-to-face workshop. The student will be asked to confirm that they are following governmental guidance on quarantine & safety and will be required to wear masks whenever moving around the building.
All equipment you need will be on your table or will be brought to you. You are welcome to remove your mask when seated. The tutor is fully vaccinated and will be wearing a mask or shield.
If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask using the 'Chat with the Maker' button.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
All basic materials and equipment are provided in the cost of the workshop. Tea/coffee/soft drinks will be available on each day.
Lunch is not included in the cost but Creek Creative Studios has an award winning free-from cafe and is also based in the town centre so you will have plenty of options for food. Given the coronavirus restrictions, please let me know well in advance if you would like to eat at the Creek Creative Studios.
In addition, you can purchase specialist dichroic glass if you want to use it and you can pay extra to have your pieces slumped.
4¾ hours (flexible times to suit)
