Introduction to Glass Fusing

Introduction to Glass Fusing

Join Shirely Eccles for an introduction to the skills and techniques involved in glass fusing and slumping.

You will have the option to make two kiln-fired pieces; a bowl/platter and either coasters, a suncatcher or a wind chime.

You will have the opportunity to experiment with a variety of ideas and glass materials.

You will have the opportunity to experiment with a variety of ideas and glass materials.

In project 1 you can create either a small wall hanging, coasters, sun catcher or a wind chime.

In project 2 you will learn techniques to design your own sheet of art glass.

This will then be used to form a slumped bowl or platter.

Suitable moulds will be discussed and prepared for this process as the technique will include two firings. 

These will be taken away for firing in a kiln and will be returned to The Base for you to collect after the course.
