Introduction to Fused Glass Sunday 14th July 2019
Join us in the Summer for our popular fused glass workshop, perfect for complete beginners.
Learn how to make your very own glass pieces in our colourful and welcoming environment in the basement of Little Beach Boutique, right in the heart of the North Laine, Brighton.
You will be introduced to the techniques needed to make your own unique dish, coasters, wall panels and jewellery and be able to make 3-4 of your own glass pieces which will be kiln-fired afterwards.
Groups will be a maximum of 6 people, with plenty of opportunity to ask questions, practice cutting and layering glass to make your own pieces for kiln firing.
Suzanne will guide you through...
Techniques of kiln-fusing, including 'tac' fusing and slumping
Working with different glass forms, including powders, frit and stringers
Adding detail into glass, using enamels, decals, stencilling and metal inserts
There will then be time to practice the techniques that you have been introduced to, giving you the time and materials to make some pieces to be fired.
We will fire your pieces after the workshop, ready for you to collect at a later date, or post them to you for a small fee.
- Running time 11 am - 3 pm with a short lunch break.
- Groups will be no more than six people.
