Glass Fusing: Garden Sculpture

Sunday 4th Jul 2021, The Lookout Studio, The Base

Three glass circular sculptures in a garden.

This workshop will offer you the opportunity to further experiment with glass fusing techniques.

There are many possibilities from abstract garden structures to flowers, birds or wind chimes. Whether you are new to glass or have experience of fusing there will be lots to inspire you and ideas to share.

We will plan and cut our glass according to our design and assemble it ready for firing in a Glass Kiln. We will use a variety of glass materials, from sheet glass to frits and stingers. Once fired you can assemble your glass piece to metal structures or stakes or suspend it from structures, ready to hang in trees. Suitable glues and assemblage techniques will be discussed during this workshop. Some metal structures and stakes will be available for sale.

Please remember to bring your face covering with you as visitors over the age of 11 are required to wear them in the building, unless you are exempt from wearing one. If you remove your mask to eat or drink you must put it back on straight after.

This workshop will take place in person at The Base.
