This is an intensive workshop where you will learn comprehensive glass fusing and slumping skills.

Specifically you will learn:

  • Understanding glass fusing and slumping
  • Supplies and equipment
  • Fusable glass in all its forms
  • How to cut glass using mosaic cutters, free hand scorers and a glass
  • cutting system
  • The basic fusing process
  • Make your first fused glass pieces

Includes glass and all materials for the full-day workshop. In the morning you will make some small items (jewelry, coaster, small dish) in order to understand different firing outcomes. We have an hour lunch break - there are a lot of local restaurants so you can eat locally or bring your own lunch. In the afternoon you will make a piece 26cm x 26cm. This can be in the form of a flat art piece or a platter/dish. If you choose to make a larger item than what the course offers - or an additional item - you can do so but will be charged for the additional glass, materials and firing. The value of the pieces you will make is worth approximately $120 so this is a good value for money course. 

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served.

The glass fusing course for beginners was a fantastic, hands on workshop! The studio was light filled and full of amazing glass and equipment!! The course provided some theory and lots of instruction on cutting and grinding glass and the basics on fusing and slumping . I was able to create some gorgeous pieces and then a colourful platter. I feel very inspired to work with glass more using these techniques. Will definitely come back!!

A fabulously interesting and creative day. Merryl is keen to share her knowledge and skill to provide a great experience. I would recommend this studio class for anyone interested in glass fusion.

Fantastic introduction to glass! I'd never done anything with glass before, but by the end of the day I could design and create a piece which I will use in my home! I'll definitely be back for more glass working in future! This is just the beginning!
