Fused Glass Jewellery Workshop
(+3 more dates)
Come along and have some fun in a gorgeous, arty environment while learning to make a variety of fused glass jewellery pieces.
Merryl’s Mosaics is open to the public to come and attend a one-off fused glass jewellery class in Melbourne. No experience is necessary, just book in and come and have a fun time making unique jewellery pieces to take home with you. This class is perfect if you're looking for a unique adult party, a hen's party, a corporate workshop or an experience gift for special occasions.
You will learn how to make five different types of glass jewellery, which you will then make into pendants earrings, rings, brooches or cufflinks. During the class, you will learn how to cut glass and see how different glass behaves so that you can achieve different outcomes.
You will learn how to make:
- Fused glass jewellery with a variety of finished surfaces
- Dichroic glass jewellery
- Cabochons (colourful glass beads and organic shapes) using a variety of techniques
- Jewellery using reactive glass
- Jewellery using inclusions like silver foils
- A variety of stacking techniques to create unique pieces
You can make up to eight pieces of jewellery as part of the course with a maximum of six dichroic pieces (if you would like to make more pieces there will be an extra charge for the glass and jewellery findings).
Your pieces will be left at Merryl’s Mosaics for firing and can be picked up about a week later.
You will be given your findings and a small tube of jewellery glue when you pick up your pieces to take home and stick onto your jewellery pieces.
If you enjoy the class, you will be able to book in to our Open Studio in the future and continue making Jewellery pieces to your heart's content!
