This workshop offers a basic introduction to glass working and in particular, glass fusing. Each participant will get to take home a beautiful jewellery piece of your own. First, you will be introduced to various glass types suitable for fusing creations. Then, spend time picking up basic glass cutting skills with your own hands. Practice on industrial float glass to gain confidence in cutting regular shapes, before working with actual fusible coloured glass that will be used to create your own fused glass item. Learn how to use the grinding machine to polish sharp edges before assembling your final creation. Follow our existing design templates or go wild with your imagination!
Once you are happy with your creation, place your piece in the kiln and learn the basics of how to operate the kiln. As the kiln heats, up, enjoy a tour of the family-run glass workshop where you will see various glass equipment and materials. Finally, return to the mini gallery to view glass art pieces made by local and international glass artists and craftsmen over the decades.
For this jewellery workshop edition, you have a choice of pendant, cufflinks or earrings. Your piece will come complete with the jewellery metal findings so that your piece can be worn.
Pieces will be fired toward the end of the workshop and will require time to cool (approx. 2 hours). We will then use special jewellery glue to attach the metal findings. The completed piece will be available for collection three days later, and Pippa will arrange collection and distribution. This workshop is for beginners and no prior experience is required. Please contact Pippa firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place.
