Fused Glass Cabachon making

On this one-day workshop you will learn how to make small fused glass cabochons (an alternative to shaped and polished gemstones) using a mix of plain and dichroic glass, for jewellery setting. You will also learn about the properties of glass and how it changes during the double firing process. There will be time for you to design your own pieces, explore further techniques and experiment using Frit (small broken up particles of glass), Confetti (very little thin glass flakes) &/or stringers.

All pieces will be fired in a kiln for collection on an agreed date.

Sat 29 Apr / 10am – 4pm / £65 / £60 concessions
