Glass Fusing Slumping - Make a Bowl
One day workshops with Jenny Timms & Mike Caddy

"A fantastic experience.Jenny & Mike really know their stuff and were so patient ." - Sharon

Slumped Glass Fusing Tack-Fusing - creating curved glass forms with texture, for beginners and those with some glass fusing experience.

On this workshop you'll learn how to create beautiful, textured fused glass art, combining glass sheets, glass frit, crushed glass, enamel pens and stringers to make a fantastic bowl approx 30cm across.

You can choose to make a fused glass round or square bowl up to 30cm in size or two smaller bowls using base sheets of clear fusible glass as your starting point.

If you've enjoyed learning the basics of glass fusing on one of our other fusing classes, this is a fascinating next step for your new fused glass hobby!

Slumping involves adding form to fused glass after its initial firing. You'll create the flat forms for your projects first, and after the first tack firing these will be 'slump-fired' in to the mould.
Once cooled your pieces will be ready for collection!

This class will equip you to create your own further slumped fused glass designs, and teach you more sophisticated fused glass construction techniques. We include a discussion on the firing schedules required for these two different processes for those interested in the more technical aspects.

After some design sketching (we can help with this if you haven't done it before), we'll review all of the materials available for you to use - including coloured fusible glass, frits, stringers, globs and enamel pens.
You'll learn how to cut pieces of coloured glass if needed too!

You'll then construct your bowl as a flat piece of art; after the first tack firing we'll then fire your piece a second time in to a mould.

The skills you've learned on our beginner's fusing class will come in handy here, although this workshop is perfect for beginners too!

  • Fusible glass sheets for the basis of your projects
