Description

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.

This was a fantastic course and I enjoyed every minute of it! Merryl is a fantastic teacher, she is very knowledgeable and is happy to pass that knowledge on to her students. One of the things I really loved about this class was that all glass and equipment were included in the price. No requirement to buy tools and glass before I even new if I would enjoy it. I recommend this course to anyone that is thinking of getting into glass fusing.
