Are you looking for something memorable to do with your child this summer? In this unique session you and your child/children can work alongside each other to make a beautiful fused panel, so no need for you parents to just watch, you can get creating too! You will begin by learning the principles and theory of glass cutting, fusing and firing.

After this you will be taught how to cut the glass and try cutting the glass yourself. Other techniques you will be introduced to will include fusing clear and coloured glass using fritt, confetti, stringers and noodles. You will get to work on your design and make a 10cm x 10cm glass piece. The session leader will provide examples of the different techniques, processes, fittings and results for you to handle and examine, but the emphasis of the workshop will be on the creative designs that you can achieve by yourselves, ensuring that everyone will have a rewarding time.

 

Your glass will need to be kiln-fired after the workshop is finished so you will NOT be taking your glass home on the day of the session. each firing takes 24 hours. Once your fused artwork has been kiln-fired and cooled, we will contact you to let you know it is ready for collection. This will usually be within a week of completing the workshop
