Friday Morning Glass Fusion Open Session
What a fab way to spend a couple of hours – in smARTsy’s lovely art workshop, surrounded by inspiration in the company of friendly, like-minded people. Whether you are a total beginner or already addicted to this gorgeous art form you are guaranteed to have a great time as you create your own pieces. We’ll look at lots of examples including coasters, dishes, and ornamental glass art. You are welcome to base your piece on any of my own as long as it is technically achievable in the time allowed! I’ll then give a short talk in which you’ll learn about fusing finishes and slumping, the different forms of glass and how to make them the size you want to be. After discussing which fuse finishes you’d like, the glass will then go into the kilns to fuse and will be available to collect after about a week or it can be posted to you at an additional cost of £10. Hot or cold drinks are available throughout the session. Tuition fee for the 2 hours is £10 and is covered by the non refundable deposit to be paid with PayPal please. The cost of materials is payable on the day. please see below. Additional fancy glass may be purchased if you'd like to go a little crazy! These sessions are 'stand-alone' and are equally suited to beginners and more experienced customers.
