day fusing extravaganza workshop will be held on 10th/11th August. During the 2 days we
start with cutting glass, and then kiln-carving with clear glass. We then make
a piece of jewellery using dichroic glass, which is fused in a microwave kiln
before we engrave it and put it into the main kiln. Then we start on colour. We
make one picture or plate using cut glass and one using glass frits and
powders, and perhaps paints. You get a light lunch each day and a folder of
information to take home with you. We cover the basics of designing for glass,
fusing and slumping glass into moulds, with firing schedules and annealing
information. You will have a minimum of 4 pieces to collect once they have been
fired. People work at different rates and have different requirements so some
people spend a lot of time on their pieces and some people whizz through and
want to make more pieces. You also get introduced to various cutting, grinding
and polishing machines and materials. The cost of our 2 day course is normally £190.
We are offering a £10 discount to applicants through CACD.
A day of Raku firing, for
those of you who wish to experiment with Raku. Enjoy the company of other

Use your own glazes or mine and then we will fire up in my purpose built Raku
kiln. Bring sandwiches for lunch, I
will provide teas, coffees & cake.
Price to cover the days
costs £15 each.
