Funky Fused Glass Jewellery Making
Half-day workshops with Jenny Timms

"Jenny's infectious and her patience is commendable." - Sue

Fused Glass Jewellery - make your own jewellery and learn about kiln fusing on this class for beginners.

This afternoon workshop will teach you how to cut clear and coloured glass, and create interesting 'jewels' to turn into pendants and earrings. No previous experience is necessary.

We will cover the basics of glass cutting using professional grade tools, and then building these pieces of glass into cabochons.
You will be shown how to make a tiny glass ‘sandwich’ - the filling being coloured glass frit and/or dichroic glass.
These pieces will then be fused in our kiln, making your glass sandwich into fused glass cabochons.

Due to firing and resin curing time the construction of the pieces will be done after the class by Jenny or Mike.
We provide sterling silver findings to make 2 finished pendants and 2 pairs of earrings.
Of course all your completed work is yours to take home; additional silver findings are available if you'd like to finish off more of your 'jewels'.
We'll send you photos of your pieces once fused (or feel free to call in) so you can choose which pieces you'd like us to attach bails and earring posts to.

You will learn:

  • Glass cutting
  • An introduction to glass fusing
  • What works well as a designed piece of glass jewellery
  • How to have fun with glass and explore new ideas

Please bring :

  • Flat enclosed shoes (no sandals) and old clothes; an apron is provided
  • Enthusiasm
  • Your close-up spectacles if you wear them
  • Some ideas for what you might like to make – a quick internet search for fused jewellery might be helpful, but even better are your own ideas!

The course cost of £85 inc VAT per person includes:

  • Enough glass to make up to 5 pendant-sized cabochons and matching earring cabochons – depending on your cutting skills
  • Silver findings so 2 of the best cabochons can be made into pendants, along with the matching pair of earrings
    • 2 x Sterling Silver Bails, 4 earring posts and 4 earring butterflies
    • Optional 18" Sterling Silver Mini Snake Chain Necklace (small extra charge)
  • Use of tools and apron
  • Refreshments during the class
  • Maximum class size 5 people
  • All your work to take home (after firing)
