This fused glass platter and small glass dishes are an example of what you can make using glass fusing techniques.

Glass fusing retreat

As Advent approaches, spend some time away from the hustle & bustle, chestnuts roasting, tinsel and Christmas shopping. Combine a couple of days’ quality time focussing on God with reflecting His creativity in your own. We’ll follow the Northumbria Community (non-ecumenical) rhythm of daily prayer, with the opportunity to go to Canterbury cathedral for a service if you choose.

In the studio you’ll have the chance to experiment with tack (contour) fusing, full fusing and slumping; materials for 3 – 4 medium pieces (e.g. dishes, wall hangings, soap dishes, coasters, candle holders) are included, or you might prefer to make more small items such as jewellery, keyrings, fridge magnets etc.

You’ll get to work with Bullseye sheet glass, frit, stringers, frit balls, confetti, glass enamels and more. Your creations will be fused (and if desired, slumped into moulds) after your course and will be ready for collection or posting a few days later. (Post and packaging are charged at cost.)
