Course programme

One day Glass Fusing Workshop

The workshop will have a maximum of eight students, allowing for ample individual as well as group tuition.

During the morning session the tutorl will explain the principles and theory of glass cutting, fusing and firing, explaining the various terms and stages used in fusing glass.

The techiques will include fusing clear and coloured glass using fritt, confetti, stringers, noodles and metal inclusions, with special emphasis on the construction of designs. This will be followed by students designing and making small glass items of their choice, such as tiles, coasters or decorative hangings.

The afternoon session will be largely used to explore the remarkable properties of dichroic glass, starting with an explanation of the process of manufacture and demonstrations of some of the wide variety of patterns and colours which can be produced, using clear, coloured or black glass as background. Students will then participate in designing, cutting and making their own pieces.

Actual fusing will take place after the workshop and students completed pieces will be available for collection or may be posted on to them.

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 materials will be provided and additional silver fittings or dichroic glass can be purchased on the day.
