Step up a notch on this two-day course, discovering how to combine glass fusing techniques and heat to achieve depth and texture. Using sheet glasses, frits and powders, create two fused glass masterpieces.
We begin at 10 am. There will be two pieces of clear base glass at each workstation and a firing chart for the end of the day. On your first day you’ll get a chance to brush up your cutting and edge grinding skills on the scrap box. We’ll have a brief chat about glass fusing stages in the firing chart. This will determine the techniques and glass types you use to create the first layer of your work. We have a brief discussion at the kiln at 3pm before the first night of glass fusing.
We begin at 10am. You will each have a copy of the second firing schedule. The work will be cool enough to handle so we can discuss the results from the previous day. Then you can begin creating the surface texture layer. As the day progresses you will learn about the chemical reactions as glass fuses and its impact on the effect you’re striving to achieve.
We aim to be loading the kiln by 3pm where we will go over the firing schedule.
The work will be ready to collect from Midday the following day. Postage at cost.
