Who it’s for:
This workshop is for those new to working with glass or those who have a little experience of working with glass.
What you’ll learn:
The morning will be split into two halves. In the first half, you’ll identify the colour and shapes that you are attracted to, and will be given help to cut them. In the second half of the morning, you will take time to assemble these in a quiet, meditative way.
You will be given patterns to work with. As you gain confidence, you can begin to design your own pieces.
You will learn the difference between transparent and opaque glass, the different forms of fused glass including sheet, frit, confetti, stringers, noodles and dichroic, and how to work safely with the different types of glass. This knowledge will help you to produce a beautiful bowl, 18-20cm in diameter, with your own mandala design.
