Come and not only find out but also make some truly lovely jewellery yourself.
This is a great way to introduce you to glass fusing. Even if you are convinced that you aren't artistic you will be amazed at what you can produce with some relaxed, individual guidance.
There is a maximum of 4 people so that everyone can have plenty of attention.
You will learn the basics of cutting and fusing glass. We will use bullseye sheet glass, dichroic glass, confetti ( very thin flakes ) and stringers ( thin rods ) .
Once you have produced your pieces they will be put in a kiln to start fusing. Not finished yet..... you can then decide on the findings ( components used to assemble your jewellery ) you want to use. Silver and gold plated pendant bails and earring posts are included in the course fee.
Fusing takes hours so you are welcome to come back and collect your work or I will send it to you at no extra cost.
On a practical note...We are dealing with glass so I recommend that you wear old clothes, closed toe shoes and bring your glasses if you ever need to wear them. Aprons and safety goggles will be provided.
