You will learn all about glass and use a range of glass fusing techniques eg basic fusing/slumping, inclusions, fibre papers to be able to make coasters, hanging suncatchers or a small dish. You will make 2 or 3 projects on the day. I am very flexible about your designs so come along with a few images for inspiration and we will discuss how to create your interpretation as part of the workshop.

As a secondary school art teacher (2001-15) I am happy to teach anyone of secondary age. My youngest glass attendee was 8 and has been with her mum for a day out with a difference making glass bunting. I request that a parent remains with any young person coming on a workshop.
