Make your own unique festive decorations and ornamental pieces in beautiful coloured glass.

We are delighted that International Glass Artist Karen Redmayne will be taking our Fused Glass workshops this year. You will learn about different types of glass used in fusing work, dichroic and iridescent and also about the all important COE (Coefficient of expansion) – vital to understand in glass fusing as it makes sure the right types of glass are used together.

You will learn how to cut, and what can be done with glass in a kiln in terms of fusing, stacking, tack fusing and slumping. You will also learn about various inclusions and their different applications, using frits, stringers, stamps and foils and other fragments. You will be able to make jewellery, coasters, plaques, waved sheets or Christmas decorations, the choice is yours depending on the amount of glass you wish to use.

Karen's July course will be focusing on Lakeland Flora and her November course will focus more on Christmas decorations. However these are only loose suggestions and of course, you are free to choose your own theme whatever the month.
