About the event
At this introduction to art glass, designed for beginners, you will learn how to design and craft two small glass landscapes with glass artist, Keith Sheppard. Your creations will be wave shaped which means that they can sit on a window sill to catch the sun and reflect dazzling colour around.
We will use a wide variety of colours and glass products – from sheet glass, rods, powder frit (small pieces of glass) and even liquid glass with endless design possibilities. Choose your colours, learn to cut and handle glass safely and with confidence, and watch demonstrations on techniques and designs.
Your completed fused glass art works will be fired at Keith’s studio and then returned to the centre for collection.
Please note: Health & Safety guidelines around clothing and footwear will be issued following booking.
