Further Fused Glass Jewellery Weekend
New course! The hotly anticipated follow on course from our Fused Glass Jewellery Taster Day.
On this exciting, project-led course, develop your understanding of how to use coloured glass and frit to make beautiful jewellery pieces. On the first day create designs on dichroic glass that you will etch using a sandblaster, practice the crackle technique, tapestry technique and discover ways of manipulating frit to create landscapes on a jewellery scale. These techniques have been created or specially adapted for jewellery by your tutor Catherine Dunstan. On the second day, the focus will be coldworking the pieces from the first day. Use a jewellery grinder bit to grind an edge for wire-wrapping, use an electric linisher to polish your edges. Get creative with jewellery findings and try out jewellery casting moulds.
There will be a maximum of 8 students to ensure individual attention.
What do I need to bring?
Nothing but yourself and a sturdy pair of closed-toed shoes. All of your glass, materials and use of tools are included in the price.
We will provide a delicious cold lunch from Pret a Manger as well as light refreshments throughout the day. Please let us know in advance if you have any special dietary requirements. We will do our best to cater to everyone but this cannot always be guaranteed.
