FEATURED COURSES
 
3 Day Glassblowing
with KT Yun
 
3 Day Glassblowing Course for Beginners
 
Immerse yourself in hot glass!

This three day course offers you the opportunity to discover the potential of this unique material, with enough time to fully immerse yourself in hot glass techniques. You will learn how to gather hot glass from the furnace, then blow, shape and add colour; master basic forms such as paperweights, spheres and vases, and then progress onto further forms such as bowls and plates. We will also look at sculptural techniques for creating more complex forms. This is an excellent fun and stimulating course, if you are looking for a better understanding of glassblowing techniques.

Reactive Fusing
with Helga Watkins-Baker
 
Reactive Fusing Glass Course
 
Test your reactions down at The Glass Hub!

Combine Bullseye sheet glass, powder, frit or metal foils to get reactions when fusing, resulting in special colours and effects. We will experiment with the use of reactive opal and clear glasses with copper-bearing glasses or copper leaf or silver foil, or fuse sulphur or copper-bearing glass, powder, and frit with other reactive elements. Reactions range from subtle to dramatic and will enable you to develop new inspirations in glass design.
