Glass Jewellery Making Class

Saturday 18 September
10:30 am - 4:00 pm

If you are new to fused glass, but would like to design and make few pieces of your own bespoke jewellery, then this class is for you. You don’t need any prior skills or knowledge, just imagination and creativity. We will use colorful glass, which incorporates metals and is perfect for making sparkling jewellery, and both microwave and larger glass kilns.

In this workshop you will learn:

• the basics of fusing glass
• how to cut and layer glass in preparation for fusing
• how to fuse glass in a kiln
• post-fusing processing, such as grinding and polishing
• how to attach jewellery findings to glass

At the end of the workshop you should be able to take home a finished pendant (or two) and a pair of earrings (or two) of your own design. You are welcome to bring your own ideas or follow a pre-designed project. The skills that you will learn will help you start making glass jewellery at home or in a studio setting. Tools, and materials will be provided, but please bring an apron with you.

The class is limited to two people.
