New Dates are now live!
This course has had a revamp. We have included new techniques and designed it to improve existing skills. This is now the perfect next step following our Glass Fusing and Slumping Two Day Course.
Develop your understanding of colour and layering and, learn how to harness the chemistry of fused glass. Explore the reactive potential of Spectrum's System 96 Glass.
This is a LEVEL TWO course - some prior experience necessary. If you are unsure about whether this is the right course for you, one of our knowledgeable staff would be happy to advise you on 0117 958 8820.
What does the course cover?
On day one students will develop their cutting skills before putting them into practice to make a multi layered colour project. Learn how to control volume and shape through the use of kiln furniture. You will create a series of test tiles combining glass, frits, stringers and noodles exploring the reactive potential of the sulphur and copper bearing glasses.
On day two you will review these experiments and use them to create your own free standing glass art panel. This will be slumped over an S Curve mould and posted out to use after slumping.
You will gain accurate technical information to help you to be experimental. You will also have a handbook to take home. We teach small groups with a maximum of eight to ensure individual attention.
On completion of the course you will receive a Guild Membership card which entitles you to 10% off your next course as well as other benefits.
What do I need to bring?
Nothing but yourself and a sturdy pair of shoes (no open toes!). All your glass, materials and use of tools are included.
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.
