This is an opportunity to experiment with glass fusing techniques. There are many possibilities and whether you are new to glass or have experience of fusing there will be lots to inspire you, with beautiful results.
A variety of glass cutting and fusing techniques will be taught and you will have a choice of objects to make. Previous students have made glass table wreaths, t-light holders, colourful hanging ornaments and Christmas scene coasters. You will be introduced to different glass materials; frits, stringers, confetti and how they are used, as well as the end results when fused and melted. Some projects will need two firing processes.
