Glass Fusing Workshop for Beginners



6.5 hours Class size 1 to 10

label $190 - $220 (or 4 payments of $48 - $55 Afterpay)
($220 per guest when you book for 1 guest, $190 for 2+ guests)


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

During the class you will gain an understanding of glass fusing and slumping and acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to fuse glass. This includes everything from how to cut glass using mosaic cutters, and free hand scorers, to the basic fusing process.

In the morning you will make some small items (jewellery, 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. Tea, coffee and biscuits will also be served. 



Knowledge required
This course is targeted at people with no glass fusing skills or for someone with a little knowledge but no application.
 
What you'll get
  • You will know the basics of fusing glass
  • Make some small pieces to learn and then create your first glass artwork

What to bring

Wendy Jones May 2021


I had an amazing time at my first glass fusing course. Merryl and Fleur were so friendly, knowledgeable, supportive and encouraging. The studio is well organised and well stocked with a great amount of materials and tools to use. There is a fantastic array of artwork on display showing different techniques. The day went too fast having so much fun. Would definitely love to attend more classes.
Truly inspirational Merryl! Thank you!

Kasey McClay May 2021


The teacher was very kind, and explained things in a way that was easy to understand. She had a lot of patience, and was happy to spend the time explaining something until you could understand. All needed materials were provided and were high quality. The venue was spacious, but it was very difficult to find parking

Lesley Hall May 2021


This was a thorough introduction to glass fusion. The support from both staff was amazing and I cam away making something I am proud of. Seriously considering going back for some casual workshops

Jenny Griffiths May 2021


The introduction to glass fusing class was excellent. Merryl was informative and supportive. Her helper Fleur was also excellent and helpful. The supplies and tools were exactly as required for the class. And the value for money was certainly worth the investment. Whole heartedly recommend and definitely planning on returning. Thank you for an amazing day!
