Glass slumping and fusing: an introduction
Who is this course for?
This is suitable for beginners and those with experience.
You will learn how to make light catchers, medallions and small bowls using coloured glass as an introduction to the technique of glass slumping.
In the first session we will be learning about slumped glass and how to create formers out of clay which will be fired as moulds. Then we will arrange different glass in and on the formers, which will be put back in the kiln to fuse the glass and melt it to the shape of the formers.
