Fancy getting creative with glass in a fun and relaxed environment? Whether you have had a go at fused glass art before or are a complete beginner, this workshop is a great way to learn a variety of glass fusing techniques and to meet some new creative people, come along and make a beautiful fused glass picture to be proud of.
In the morning session we will discuss and design your ideas, create the background using glass powders frits and metals. Then later we will use all the different glass colours, equipment and techniques available in our studio including lampwork torches, to bring your pictures to life.
You will be shown how to safely use the tools and equipment and then it’s over to you (along with help and advice along the way) to turn your ideas into art!
The courses are held on the site of the Red House Glass Cone, near Stourbridge in the heart of the Glass Quarter. You can spend some time looking around the site, glass blowing demonstrations are held weekend afternoons. There is also a coffee shop on site but tea and coffee will be provided.
Your pieces will need to fired over night, but will be available for collection a few days after the course. Or they can be posted for a small additional postage fee.
