Saturday fused glass creative day for beginners and improvers
It’s high time that 2021 got better, so why not treat yourself to a Saturday fused glass creative day in our spacious Kent glass studio. Better still, bring a friend or loved one too!
Come and explore warm glass with us, using both float glass and then Bullseye fusing glass. A generous quantity of materials, lunch and refreshments are included. You’ll impress yourself with what you can create! Artistic ability is useful but by no means essential.
If you’ve not played with glass before, don’t worry. We’ll teach you and soon have you cutting with confidence. You can even make something beautiful without cutting glass at all! We have a wide range of colourful sheet glass, frit, stringers (think “glass spaghetti”) and more. Come and be spoiled for choice.
If you’ve done some glass fusing before, let us help you move up to the next level. Try some reactive effects, kiln carving or working with inclusions (things other than glass) between layers of Bullseye glass. If you have any particular things you’d like to try, drop us a line or give us a ring.
What can I make?
You can make coasters, small dishes, window hangings or even art for your garden. The choice is yours; the smaller the items, the more you can make. (Why not have a look at our Facebook page & see what our previous visitors have made? Note that some of them are regular weekly visitors, especially the people making huge things!)
On the weekly classes, students pay for their own glass, while on this Saturday fused glass creative day the cost of the glass is included for a coloured item up to 20 x 20cm (or several smaller things) plus float (window) glass for your first (practise) item.
Your glass will be fused after your course and can be collected or posted to you (this typically costs around £7 depending on its size & weight).
