Glass fusing days – the perfect way to spend the school holidays.
We have spaces on our glass fusing day course on Sunday 5th August. It’s ideal both for beginners and people who’ve done a bit of glass work before but would like to do more.
We use Bullseye fusing glass, so you’ll have a wide range of glass to choose from. “Too much choice” is the usual refrain!
You’ll be greeted with pastries and fresh tea & coffee, & have a quick look through the process of fusing – what happens to the glass in the kiln. After that, we’ll head into the purposed designed studio and get to grips with glass cutting. Even experienced glass cutters often pick up useful tips!
Experiment with float (window) glass for your first fused creation, before we switch to Bullseye fusing glass- a riot of colour and form. You’ll have the chance to experiment with glass confetti as well as stringers, frit and funky frit balls.
All of these can be combined to make your very own designs- one off unique creations to treasure, birthday and Christmas presents; it’s up to you!
You’ll soon be cutting glass with confidence and will amaze yourself with what you create. You’ll get to put your own work into the (cool) kiln ready for fusing. It takes around 24 hours in the kiln, plus another 24 hours slumping if you’d like to make something 3D like a bowl, trinket dish or a stand-up plaque. You can choose to either come back to collect your work once it’s fused, or we can post it to you for a small extra charge.

Here are some pictures from last weekend’s taster day. Two couples joined us, none of whom had ever cut a piece of glass before. They had a fantastic time and are now planning their next course with us!
