The glass jewellery making classes are back!
For the time being they will be held as one-on-one workshops, once a week, to keep all of us safe. You can come with one other person as long as it is a family member or someone from your close social ‘bubble’.
If you are new to 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 colourful fusable glass, which incorporates metals and is perfect for making sparkling jewellery, and both a microwave and a larger glass kiln.
In this class 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 class 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 ideas or follow a pre-designed project. The skills that you will learn will help you start making your own glass jewellery at home or in a studio setting. Tools, and materials will be provided, but please bring an apron with you and wear a mask.
