Some New Class Dates

Just a quick note to say I’ve added some new class dates – not many for now, as I am busy with the residency, but I have had quite a few people asking, so I thought I’d get some dates planned in!

There are two “Introduction to Glass Fusing” sessions: during a glass fusing day, I will introduce you to the world of fused glass. We get stuck in early with learning how to cut glass during the first part of the morning, practicing your skills with plain window glass – many students like to make a something like a wall hanging or panel from the shapes they’ve cut. Once everybody is comfortable with this, we move on to using coloured art glass, and I will show you a variety of methods for creating your own unique pieces by using layering techniques, inclusions, frit and more. All materials, tools and equipment are provided, including access to my vast array of glass! You’ll get the chance to make a some small pieces, along with perhaps a small window hanging, free-standing panel or coaster or two. The day lasts around six hours or so, and does require an element of hand-strength and dexterity for the cutting. Suitable for all adults, and possibly mid-teenagers by arrangement. Work to be fired after the day, ready to be collected at a later date.

I must be mad, as I am a Mum, but whilst my 19 year old son is fantastic, I doubt he will be planning anything grand for me (that can’t wait). So I’ve planned in a short making session for Mother’s Day. I am sure other Mums appreciate being taken out to lunch or afternoon tea, but equally, they just love spending time with loved ones. So why not spend a bit of quality time together and make something? This short session, which will last about two hours is a fun but relaxed session. Each participant is provided with a pre-cut glass blank to make a sun-catcher or small wall panel and I will show you how to decorate it with a variety of glass accessories or mosaic size pieces of coloured glass. See a sample below!
