Jill Bagnall, designer-maker at Fusing Ideas Glass, will introduce you to kiln-forming and the skills required to create a beautiful & unique work of art. Everything you need is supplied, plus guidance and advice to create your design; no previous experience is necessary. Creativity Unleashed; the perfect way to relax & unwind.

Booking essential, maximum 8 places.
After an introduction to safety, tools & equipment and terms & processes, you will learn about the glass you will be using. Jill will teach you how to handle, cut and nibble sheet glass safely & introduce some design ideas & techniques.
Using clear and coloured sheet glass and ‘accessory glass’ you will create your unique design, so feel free to bring pictures for inspiration. Make it seasonal, abstract or designed to co-ordinate with your home, Jill will guide and advise how you can achieve it using the materials available.
