Beginners Sewing Course XL

Beginners Sewing Course XL

Tuesday 27 July - Tuesday 31 August
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Beginners sewing course XL is an extended version of the classic Beginners sewing course. It is a 6-week evening course, so there’s two extra projects to make. This extra sewing practice makes a huge difference to your sewing skill and confidence.

It is a good starting point to learn expert sewing techniques whether you want to progress into dressmaking, soft furnishing or craft projects. It’s also a great refresher if you’ve not sewn for a while. You’ll learn how to understand sewing machines, get experience of using different stitch types, learning about stitch lengths, widths and tensions. I’ll explain what the different presser feet are for and you’ll learn how to measure and cut fabric.

Get Creative With Fused Glass

Get Creative With Fused Glass

Saturday 14 August
11:00 am - 4:30 pm

Have you ever tried fusing glass? It is a lot of fun and utterly addictive. In this workshop you will learn how this is done and give it a go. You can make a beautiful glass bowl, a colorful suncatcher or something else that has a personal meaning to you. If you already have basic skills, you can work on your desired project or learn a new technique.
Fusing enables individual pieces of glass 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 few days after the workshop, depending on the complexity of the project. All tools and materials will be provided.

The workshop is limited to two participants.
To inquire or book a place, please email Irina to: 523.glassart@gmail.com
