Who it’s for:
This workshop is for anyone with no or little experience of working with glass who would like to make an 18-20cm bowl of their own mandala design.
What you’ll learn:
You will learn about 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.
The session will be arranged in two halves. In the first half, you will identify the colours and shapes that you are attracted to and cut them with the help of the tutor. In the second half, you will assemble these pieces in a quiet, meditative way. You will be given patterns to work with to guide you and as you gain confidence, can begin to design your own pieces.
