Explore something new, why not give it a go? I have new workshop dates scheduled for glass fusing classes during May 2018 in Celbridge.  Do you fancy making your own gifts or framed artworks?  Then this is the course for you.  It is also a great way to unwind and meet new creatives.  The glass fusing course will be one session a week over three weeks. Classes are available on Tuesday mornings, Thursday nights and Saturday mornings. Read on for more information and dates, view a short video or contact me to add your name to the list.

Come, learn a new craft and have some fun!

These glass fusing classes will introduce you the joys of working with brightly coloured glass to design and create a glass image for framing, a slumped (curved) glass piece for display and two small pieces of jewellery. Each one of these art pieces would make an ideal gift.

Glass fusing is about layering pieces and particles of glass together. They are placed in the kiln overnight at controlled temperatures where the glass melts and fuses together to create a beautiful image. All class material, 2 kiln firings, one small picture frame and light refreshments are included in the course fee. Morning or evening sessions are available. No previous experience of working with glass required.

On completion of the course participants will have gained a knowledge of glass fusing and have make your own original small scale artworks for framing or as a gift.

I also do other workshops including ceramics, printmaking, fibre art and other processes so watch out for my introductory videos. Looking forward to welcoming and meeting you.
