Course/Workshop Description

Bombina Glass and Green Door learning would like you to join them to create a fused glass Lantern. Create beautiful decorative glass pieces using this exciting technique. A relaxed and enjoyable day where you'll learn how to cut glass safely and assemble for fusing. No experience necessary, and all materials included. In this workshop you will learn about glass fusing and create 4 glass panel pictures for your Lantern. You will learn the basics of glass fusing, the use of different types of glass and colours. Each creation is unique will create a wonderful piece of art for your home. This workshop is a great introduction to the world of glass fusing. Fused glass pictures are usually made by heating two layers of 3mm glass together in the kiln to produce a single piece of strong 6mm glass. By the end of the course, you will be able to cut and grind glass safely to create a beautiful, fused glass piece. You will understand how each colour will affect the one underneath and how the glass needs to be arranged for firing. We will discuss the properties of glass and compatibility(the chant of the glass fuser!) We will explore the different effects that can be achieved using glass frits, powders, and inclusions of metals. I will also teach you how to use glass paint in the piece to achieve a strong design. It’s so satisfying to make a useful object that you will keep always. We will make 4 glass panels ready to be slotted into your Lantern. Your day will start at 10:00am and finish at 4pm. Refreshments will be provided during a coffee/tea break.Please bring a packed lunch. No experience necessary, all fused glass courses are suitable for beginners and improvers alike.
