How will I be taught?
The course provides an environment in which the student can gain knowledge and skills in basic techniques of fusing. The tutor will use a variety of teaching methods, including one to one tutorials, group discussions, critiques and tutor guided workshop practise. By the end of the day you will have produced a variety of small decorative fused glass items. Your tutor will discuss your progress with you on an individual basis.
What do I need to bring with me?
Students should bring their own paper and pencils.
The materials requirements of each student and the amount and type of glass differs widely so you will be asked by the tutor to pay for any materials you use on an individual basis which will amount to about £10 payable on the day.
There will be an hour for lunch.
