Who is the course for?
This course will suit those keen to explore an interesting area of creativity. Previous experience of working with glass is not required as the course is suitable for those with some experience and those with none of making decorative objects by fusing glass.
What does the course involve?
Over the three weeks there will be an opportunity to explore techniques in fusing glass. Each week will focus on a different project which might include creating jewellery, a square plate and a decorative curved panel, or sun catchers and coasters.
What makes this course special?
This course will make use of some unusual materials to create beautiful items to keep. There will not be time to fire the items during the course so your focus will be entirely on learning some basic and more advanced principles of fusing glass and trying them out of three separate projects (one per week). All the items you make will be available for collection a week after the course has finished.
There are no formal requirements for this course excepting an enthusiasm to learn some new skills and explore your creativity through fusing glass.
What are the assessment methods?
The tutor will provide demonstrations, support and feedback to help you learn and begin to master each new technique.
Are there any additional costs for the course?
The course costs include a pack of materials which will be enough to make three items. If you are quick and have time to make additional items you are welcome to purchase an additional pack at cost from the tutor.
