Glass Fusing Mini Fish Sculpture - afternoon workshop

"Another great workshop" - Maggie B-W

Make a pair of funky fused glass fish on this fun half-day workshop

On this workshop you'll create two fused glass fish ready to display on the wooden base we supply, like the ones we sell in the gallery.
You'll also gain an insight in to some of the basics of glass fusing - a gentle introduction to a craft many of our students have gone on to enjoy developing in their own home.

You'll learn how to cut the fish shapes in glass, which you'll then decorate with glass paints and bubble powders before firing in the kiln.

Each fish is made up of two layers of clear glass; you'll decorate the lower layer with glass paints and bubble paints and can also decorate the top later with enamel pens for addition detail if you choose. The stiff wire used to susppend your fish will be added just before we fire your fish.

After firing we'll prepare a simple wooden base for you to display your fish and let you know they're ready to collect!

This is a fun and accessible mini workshop - suitable for beginners.

The course cost of £69 inc VAT per person includes:

  • Enough clear glass to cut 4 shapes for two fish
  • Coloured glass paints and coloured bubble powders plus enamel pens
  • Wooden base to display your fish
  • Use of all tools and apron
