NEW: Two day glass fusing course
Next one: Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd September 2017
Ideal for those who have already attended one of our one-day fusing workshops, this two day course will help you develop your glass fusing with enamels skills even further. You will now learn how to cut glass (straight lines and circles) and also how to use fibre paper for simple mould-making to create relief in your glass (sometimes called kiln-carving).
Read our FAQs:
Whats the plan for the two days?
On day one, as well as glass cutting and mould making, you will be able to make several sample pieces whilst you practise your enamel application techniques. These samples will serve as ‘drafts’ for the main piece that you will be making on the following day. They will be fired in the kiln on the first night so that you can see how they have turned out on the morning of day two.
On day two you will be able to focus all day on making your main piece, a panel which can be up to 60cm x 30cm in size. This course is all about design progression, and learning from your first attempts with the samples – assessing what has worked, and what maybe didn’t come out quite as you expected – so that you can make appropriate adjustments in your finished design.
Who else will be there?
Places will be strictly limited to five per workshop to allow everyone ample access to Steve’s expertise.
What can I take home with me?
Your main piece can be a maximum size of 30cm x 60cm. You can create any design that you wish, perhaps taking inspiration from our coastal surroundings or you can bring some ideas with you. You will also be able to keep all the sample pieces you made on the first day. Everything will be ready for you to collect by Midday on the Sunday (or we can send it to you via courier for an additional charge if you are not able to collect in person).
Whats the cost?
The cost of each place is £450. This must be paid in full to secure your place.
What does the cost include?
The all-inclusive cost covers your tuition, all materials that you will be using, protective mask and apron, a yummy pub lunch and other refreshments on both days, the items you make to take home, and fixings with which to hang your main piece.
Can I bring a friend?
To allow everyone plenty of space to work only those paying for a place will be able to attend during the day; however your friends and family are welcome to come in at the end of the day to see the fruits of your labours before your piece is fired in the kiln, and again the following day for the grand kiln-opening!
