Fused Glass Workshop: with Susan Purser Hope
This workshop led by Susan Purser Hope will introduce you to the pleasure and excitement of working with a new creative material – fused glass. You will be invited to bring images of what you would like to reproduce. Then you will sketch your design and place it under a clear base glass.
By applying frits (small glass granules), stringers (glass sticks), confetti (wafer thin glass sheets) and paints you will create and capture your favourite things. Your panel will be fired in a kiln and part of the joy of working with glass is seeing the transformation of your work pre and post firing – it has its own special magic.
