Discover glass fusing and experiment with Bullseye fusing glass to create a decorative piece of artwork. Learn the core skills for fusing, from cutting glass, to designing and building artworks using a variety of coloured glass elements and embellishments. You will also learn about the fusing process and the firing programs used to create different effects. You will be encouraged to try some practical experiments and will benefit from the technical information and supervision provided by your tutor Christine Wolfe. This workshop involves minimal glass cutting and is suitable for beginners. NOTE: Due to the firing and cooling down processes involved with all glassmaking it is not possible for participants to take work home on the day it is made. Work needs to be fired and cooled slowly in a kiln. Your creations will be taken away, for firing, and returned to NYAS, for collection. What can I make? In a 2-hour workshop we are focused to get you cutting and making right from the start. You will be provided with a pre-cut piece of clear base glass, which can be decorated with coloured glass elements. Choose from the following to make on your workshop: 1 x 12 x 10 cm hanging suncatcher. You can cut the base glass in half to create two smaller pieces. These will incorporate hanging loops for you to display them when they are finished. 1 x 12 x 10 cm panel, to be attached to a tealight holder (included in the price). What do you need to bring? Just bring yourself, your enthusiasm, and a pair of closed-toed shoes (no open-toed footwear). All your materials and tools will be provided. The cost of one hanging suncatcher or tealight panel are included in the workshop cost. You can make an additional hanging suncatcher or tealight holder in the session for £6, to be paid on the day.
