Covid secure fused glass taster, Monday 2nd November
We’re running a Covid secure fused glass taster day on Monday 2nd November, in our Kent studio.
Frustrated that courses always seem to run at the weekend, when you’re working, looking after little’uns or at the football? Join us on a Monday instead, from 10am to 5pm on 2nd November.
There’ll be a maximum of four spaces on the course, to allow ample room for social distancing. Bring a face covering in case you need help with anything from less than 2m away. Soap, hot water, paper towels, hand gel etc. will all be provided, to help keep everyone safe.
You’ll be offered a welcoming coffee / tea etc. and a brief look at what happens to your glass in the kiln. Then come upstairs into the studio and learn to cut glass (or brush up and learn new tips if you’re already confident working with glass).
There’ll be a great range of fusing glass to choose from, the tools will all be provided, as will lunch, refreshments and free on-site parking. Oh, and soap, hand sanitiser and paper towels…
You’ll need to bring a face covering with you, but (unless government rules change) you’ll only need to wear it when / if you’re less than 2m from someone else.
What can I make?
Included in the course fee is enough Bullseye fusing glass to make something up to 20 x 20cm square as well as your practise item(s) made from window glass. You might like to make a window hanging, a small dish or two, some coasters, keyrings & / or jewellery, Christmas gifts for those “hard to buy for” people… The choice is yours. If you have loftier ambitions, extra glass can be bought from us; if you’re planning to make a splashback for your cooker, please let us know in advance!!! (We also offer kiln hire for your own projects…)
We’ll give you as much (or as little) help as you need. There’s nothing we enjoy more than the look of surprised delight at what people achieve on our courses!
Do I take my glass home at the end of the day?
In short, no. Your glass will be fused after your course. This takes around 24 hours (plus a further 24 hours if you then want it slumped to make something 3D). This means that it won’t be ready to take home on the same day as your class.
You’re welcome to either come back to collect it, or it can be posted to you (this typically costs around £7 depending on its size & weight, as obviously the packaging is very important!).
