Fused Glass Jewellery

Learn how to cut, prepare and fuse small glass pieces using a ‘hot pot’ kiln and microwave.  Traditional glass fusing in a kiln takes hours, but in this workshop you will use a microwave and a ‘hot pot’ kiln which fuses small pieces in just ten minutes or less!  You will experiment with clear and coloured glass, dichroic glass and metal inclusions to create two or three pieces of jewellery, such as a pendant and pair of earrings.

This workshop is suitable for beginners and all equipment and materials are provided, though you are welcome to bring your own ideas, patterns and pictures as inspiration.

This workshop is now fully booked.  To be informed should space become available use the Join Waiting List button on this page.
