Easter Spring Introduction to Fused Glass

Ocean Studios Performing & Visual Arts
A fun, relaxed half-day fused glass session in beautiful surroundings where you can make a beautiful piece or pieces of fused glass

In this 3 hour course you will make a beautiful Easter or spring-inspired fused glass picture (or you can choose a theme personal to you.) Guided by professional glass artist and tutor, Annette Daly, you will learn skills such as how to cut glass how to choose the best type of glass or accessory for different effects on your piece which could be a medium-sized spring scene such as a flower meadow or you may decide to make a spring-inspired abstract piece or several smaller pieces like Easter eggs. You will be able to use a wide range of top quality Bullseye glass and accessory glass, some of which is unique to Annette Daly Glass to make your piece.

Your piece will look beautiful framed or hung in a sunny or well-lit spot or it can be curved to be free-standing or you could purchase a beautiful oak stand at the class for your piece (available to view at the class.)

This course is suitable for both beginners and those with fusing experience aged 12+ to adult. Refreshments (tea, coffee and cake) are available to help keep your creative juices flowing. Don’t worry if you don’t feel you are very creative. Fused glass is a very tactile and forgiving medium and even complete beginners can get fantastic results.

Your glass picture will be fired in a specialist glass kiln after the course and will be available to collect from Ocean Studios a week or so later or it can be posted (postage charged at cost).

The course will be run in a small group to ensure lots of individual attention and is subject to a minimum number of people attending. If less than the minimum number sign up to this workshop, you can transfer to another session or get a full refund.

Next steps – Annette runs longer and multi-part fused glass courses which will enable you to make larger and more complex pieces and to also learn more in-depth skills. She also runs Fused Glass jewellery courses which range from short tasters like this one up to a multi-part Foundation course run over 4 weeks.
