Description

This is an intensive workshop where you will learn comprehensive glass fusing and slumping skills.

Specifically you will learn:

  • Understanding glass fusing and slumping
  • Supplies and equipment
  • Fusable glass in all its forms
  • How to cut glass using mosaic cutters, free hand scorers and a glass
  • cutting system
  • The basic fusing process
  • Make your first fused glass pieces

Includes glass and all materials for the full-day workshop. In the morning you will make some small items (jewelry, coaster, small dish) in order to understand different firing outcomes. We have an hour lunch break - there are a lot of local restaurants so you can eat locally or bring your own lunch. In the afternoon you will make a piece 26cm x 26cm. This can be in the form of a flat art piece or a platter/dish. If you choose to make a larger item than what the course offers - or an additional item - you can do so but will be charged for the additional glass, materials and firing. The value of the pieces you will make is worth approximately $120 so this is a good value for money course. 

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served.

This glass fusing workshop was brilliant and provided sufficient information to have a real go at making a range of beautiful glass artworks. Merryl and her assistant Georgina both provided excellent advice about the best approach and techniques to use throughout the class. I strongly advise that you have a look at glass fusing artwork examples on the internet beforehand, so that you can bring a few ideas about what you might like to try for your large piece at the workshop. Making glass fusing items is highly addictive and a great experience!

Merryl and Fleur were fabulous! My girlfriend and I rocked up with little idea and big ideas! We had googled the type of thing we wanted to create and Merryl took us step by step through the process and helped us put them together. Starting with three practices, a smaller piece (coaster), then the last piece building the platter that we had hoped to create. Although I haven't picked up the fired pieces yet, I had a great day and learn't just the right amount. Merryl and Fleur are great teachers and very patient.....:-) Thanks!!
