GREAT DAY OUT - Learning with Fun

 Beginners' One Day Glass Fusing Workshop    cost £89 for the day - £45 half day 

 Glass Fusing Classes / Workshops held at Acorn Cottage, Billericay, Essex (near Basildon, Wickford, Brentwood and Chelmsford ), where you will learn to cut glass and make a selection of items. At our Fused Glass Class you can make upto 3 items of glass art which can be either a standing wave, picture (flower meadow - sea scene etc), dish, light catcher, 2 coasters, or piece of wall art). and upto 3  jewellery items  (pendant, earrings, bangle/ring/cufflinks) or make another piece of glass art.   Check out the Students' Work to see what previous students have made.  Please discuss with me your requirements.   You need no experience . You will also learn about different types of fusing and glass thicknesses and qualities and how they affect the finished article.  Glass, dichroic glass, frits and stringers etc are all included in the price.  

 The workshop runs from 10am to 4.30pm on the last Saturday of most months (subject to change)  and are held at Acorn Cottage in Billericay.  A delicious lunch is provided and taken in the delightful garden during the summer.   Workshops accommodate upto 6 students. Many people make up a group of friends for a "girly day out" an alternative to the "spa day" or "hen night". The pieces will be fired and I will fit the jewellery findings. You can either return one week later or I can arrange for the items to be posted.Just bring enthusiasm - ideas if you have them - if not there are plenty of books and samples for you to look at. Please wear comfortable clothes and CLOSED IN SHOES
