Glass Fusing with Natural Materials, with Roxanne Denny
Sunday 1 October, 1pm to 4pm
Fee: £45 per person
Join us and glass artist Roxanne Denny for a beginners' fusing course using natural materials inlcuding our own Egremont Red pigment derived from the iron ore here at Florence Mine, as well as other metals and minerals.
During the course you will learn to produce simple fused items, including an introduction to the materials we will be using, compatibility and how to cut glass. Over the three hours you will be able to produce between two to four pieces of your choice from wall hangings, coasters and bowls. These can be collected in a few days after time in the kiln. It may be helpful to bring some ideas of what you would like to make or inspirational images to give you a starting point when deisgning your pieces.
Courses are limited to eight people maximum to ensure that everyone will receive enough time and attention - so book early to secure your place. The course fee also includes all materials and use of equipment. No previous experience is necessary and it is suitable for those aged 16 and over.
