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.
