Saturday, 25th March 2017, 1.30pm – 4.00pm.
This half-day workshop is designed to introduce beginners to the techniques necessary to begin creating fused glass artwork. Areas covered will include fusing clear and coloured glass using fritt, confetti, stringers, noodles and metal inclusions, with special emphasis on the construction of designs. Students will then have the opportunity to design and make small glass items of their choice, such as tiles, coasters, jewellery or decorative hangings.
The tutor will provide examples of the different techniques, processes, fittings and results for students to handle and examine, but the emphasis of the workshop will remain on the creative designs that students can achieve by themselves, ensuring that every student will have an enjoyable and rewarding day.
All glass items will be kiln-fired, typically on the day following the workshop, and can then be collected. The workshop will be held in the Stained Glass Museum workshop, South Transept Triforium, Ely Cathedral. Costs are £45 per person including materials, equipment and tuition. Friends of the Museum receive a 10% discount.
