One to One Glass Fusing
A one-to-one course exploring techniques of melting glass in a kiln to produce a range of fused glass items. If you are a beginner, you will learn about the science of glass and how it is formed in the kiln, and will design and create a range of fused glass items including a bowl, which will be your main project. If you are looking to hone your existing skills, want an in-depth look at firing programs or try more complicated techniques we can design a course specific to your needs.
One to ones run from 10am - 4pm, with half an hour break for lunch.
All are taught by experienced tutors who are experts in the area of glass-working. Lunch and use of all tools is included.
Including materials option:
Prices include materials for a medium sized bowl and a few small fused items.
Excluding materials option:
If you would like to make something larger, such as a bespoke piece please choose this option.
All options include on Hobbyfuser or FK4 firing per day, surcharge applies for larger kiln.
Whichever option you choose, we will call you once you have made your booking to confirm a date, discuss what you hope to achieve and design the day to suit you specific needs.
If you are unsure which option to choose and would like advice, please call Catherine on 0117 958 8820.

Fantastic day !By Claire Banks
I originally booked this day as I was unable to make it to the fusing and slumping weekend , then because of erratic work schedules I had to cancel then was able to do the basic weekend anyway ! they were very understanding at the creative glass guild and I when I finally did this day I knew I wanted to cram as much as possible into the one day , possibly take advantage of the larger kilns I was going to make a huge piece of wall art but eventually decided that I wanted to learn a technique covered in the master class , I also experimented with frits, powders, stencils and reactive glass , covering many techniques with samples as well as my main project . I am amazed how much got done in one day ! Simon was a great teacher, he answered all my questions concerning how various effects could be achieved and offered lots of advice for my project . I had various hand-outs to take away with specific schedules and I am soooooo inspired to continue creating with glass . Can't wait for my project and samples to arrive in the post ! oh and lunch was great as well ! Thank-you so much to Simon and all at the creative glass guild - wish I lived nearer so I could rent a kiln and studio space !
