Fused Glass for Beginners

Saturday 25 May
11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Have you ever tried fusing glass? In this workshop you will learn how this is done and give it a try. If you already have basic skills, you can work on your desired project.

Kilnformed or fused glass is a craft known since ancient times and used for making jewellery and vessels. It was largely forgotten through the ages until it was re-discovered in 1950-ties. Currently, fusing glass is a popular hobby as well as a distinct and versatile art form.

Fusing glass enables individual pieces to be transformed into a single object when they are put together and exposed to high temperature in a kiln. Depending on the temperature used, different textures and other interesting visual effects can be achieved. Furthermore, placing the glass into a mould or on a prop can produce three-dimensional forms with varying complexity.

In this workshop you will:

• learn the basics of fusing glass
• become skilled in cutting glass and assembling simple forms
• learn how to achieve desired textures and other effects
• design and make your own glass objects to take home

Note that your creations will not be ready at the end of the workshop, but will be available to collect from the studio 2-3 days after the workshop. Tools and materials will be provided, but please bring an apron with you.

For more information and to book a place, please phone 07446858812 or email Irina at 523.glassart@gmail.com
