Christmas Glass Fusing Workshop with Jill Bagnall
Saturday 14th December 2019, 11.00 am to 3.30 pm
Create a fabulous free-standing, kiln-formed glass wave, finished size 15cm tall by 38cm long (6ins x 15ins). Gorgeous in your home or a wonderful ‘I made this especially for you’ gift.
Bagnall, designer/maker at Fusing Ideas Glass, will introduce you to kiln-forming
and the skills to create a beautiful work of art.
Everything you need is supplied, plus guidance and advice to create something truly unique.
No previous experience is necessary.
Creativity Unleashed; the perfect way to relax and unwind from pre-Christmas stress.
Price: £75 per person includes all materials, equipment use and kiln firings.
Please note: Lunch is not included in the price.
Booking essential, maximum 10 places.
After an introduction
to safety, tools & equipment and terms & processes, you will learn about
the glass you will be using.
You will learn, hands-on, how to handle, cut, chip and nibble sheet glass safely and then you will start on your own design.
You will use clear and coloured sheet glass, and add ‘accessory glass’ to create your gorgeous art. Some ‘glittery inclusions’ and reflective (dichroic) glass will be available to add sparkle (well, we are thinking Christmas) to your finished piece if you wish.
The design will be completely up to you, using any
of the materials available. Jill will guide and advise how you can achieve it.
It is a substantial piece 15cm by 40cm landscape.

at Jill’s studio during the following week and delivered back to the Willow early
on Saturday 21st for you to collect in time for the ‘big day’.
Alternatively, it can be posted out to you for a flat fee of £12, via DPD.
