Looking to begin a glass art hobby? This one-day workshop covers the basic skills for fusing and slumping glass into a platter.

What you'll learn:

  • Cutting glass
  • Glass behaviour under temperature
  • Design
  • Preparing glass for firing
  • Slumping onto a mould
  • Basic firing schedule

You will make two glass pieces; a small piece 13-17cm square/round, and a medium piece 21-26cm square/round.

The day will start with a couple of videos showing fusing and cutting basics over coffee or tea. Your teacher will be on hand to explain more and answer questions and then into the studio where you will learn to cut class.

Before lunch, you will pick your two platter moulds and look at the glass that is available and examples highlighting various techniques. You'll work with a range of glass including sheet glass, frit, powder, and stringer.

After lunch, you will design your pieces and then cut your chosen glass. You will then clean your glass and assemble it into the kiln. The basic firing schedule can then be organised so you know when to pick up your finished pieces!

Please note: your slumped pieces will be available 3-5 days after the workshop. You will need to come back to the studio to pick up or we can arrange to send the finished works.

Although my journey with glass started with lead lighting 30 years ago, I learned to make fused glass in 2009. Without boundaries, I found it the perfect medium to explore and develop my creative skills.

Glass is a fascinating medium, and I am constantly learning, experimenting and developing new methods to create new pieces that reflect my story and environment.

Building my new studio in the hills has allowed me to share my passion for glass with others through a series of courses and workshops.
