Showing events in December 2021

Festive Glass Fusing for Children: Level 1
4 Dec. 2021 10:00-11:30

*** FULLY BOOKED *** Please contact us for waiting list


Event category: Children's Workshop

Price: 10.00
Location: The Stained Glass Museum
The session leader will explain the principles and theory of glass cutting, fusing and firing, explaining the various terms and stages used in fusing glass. The techniques you will be introduced to will include fusing clear and coloured glass using fritt, confetti, stringers, noodles and some metal inclusions, with special emphasis on the construction of designs. Young people will get to work on their design and make small glass items of their choice, such as tiles, coasters, jewellery or decorative hangings. The session leader 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 the young people can achieve by themselves, ensuring that everyone will have a rewarding time.

Your glass will need to be kiln-fired after the workshop is finished. This process takes 24 hours and will usually takes place on the following day because someone needs to be on the premises during firing. Once your fused artwork has been kiln-fired and cooled, we will contact you to let you know it is ready for collection.

All young people must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the workshop.
