Stack Fusing Weekend
Introducing my new Stack Fusing Weekend course! In this class you will taken step by step through the process of designing and making your own 3D glass block, built up using layers of sheet glass, frit and powder. You can make your piece to any design; either totally abstract or you can bring along an image to work from. This technique is particularly good at conveying a sense of depth, so try to choose an idea which you can divide into a foreground, midground and background; if you're unsure at all, just bring a selection of different images along and I'll help you. On day one you will design and create your layers, these will be fired and ready for day two, when you will stack them together, whilst adding more colour and detail to your design. The stack will then be fired and made ready for pick up the following week. The finished piece is approx 8" x 8" x 1.5". Refreshments will be available throughout the course and a light lunch will be provided at 210 Bistro on Saturday lunchtime. Suitable for absolute beginners or those with some experience in glass fusing. Maximum group size - 8, Minimum age 12. There is full disabled access to the studio, and parking can be arranged for persons with limited mobility. Introductory price of £145 (normally £175) Groups of 4 or more people can book a private 2 day session at anytime, (weekend or during the week if more suitable) I can't wait to see all your fab designs!!
