Workshops are held for a maximum of 3 people at a time and you will receive full instruction and support to create a unique piece of glass art to take home once the glass has been fused in the kiln. You will have access to a wide range of coloured Bullseye art glass and accessory glass such as , stringers, frit and powders and be shown examples of what you could make, for instance a sun catcher, glass gift tags, a bowl or dish, coasters, candle holder etc. I will explain how glass reacts to heat and how it transforms into beautiful art work by using different programmes in the kiln. No prior knowledge is required and you will be amazed and delighted as what you can achieve! If you wish you can learn how to cut the glass yourself or I will do the cutting for you if you prefer. Other equipment such as a grinder is also available for you to try as are moulds which will transform flat fused glass items into shapes such as a bowl. These will require a second firing and will incur an additional cost however many items can be completed in the first firing and will be ready to take collect or post on 24 hours later or, if you are staying in our holiday accommodation, by the end of your stay with us
I have a passion for glass and have been fusing at home since taking up the craft two years ago I have a small studio in my home with my own kiln. My work is inspired by the beautiful surroundings both countryside and coastal near Bude in Cornwall and I combine working with glass alongside hosting in our family run holiday let. I run workshops as an introduction to glass fusing. These are in groups of no more than 3 people and take place in my home.
