Course description

Stained and Fused Glass - Professional Skills - All Levels:

Our craft courses will teach you a range of creative skills you can use to start a small business making and selling your own unique products. They're also a great way to improve your dexterity, meet new people and develop an interest.

Introduction

Students of all levels are welcome. You will receive individual advice and guidance to complete a project of your choice appropriate to your level of experience.

Traditional techniques using lead, copper foil and glass applique are taught as well as contemporary warm glass techniques - painted, fused and slumped glass.

You will be able to create a wide variety of beautiful and decorative pieces using these techniques - tiny pieces of jewellery, coasters, bowls, light catchers, lanterns, mirrors and panels for doors, windows and the garden.

Students may achieve a skill set which will enable them to gift or sell their work as well as undertake commissioned work.

Working with glass in a group situation can be relaxing and sociable but also stimulates ideas and, for many, becomes a lifelong learning opportunity and an interest with commercial potential.

By the end of the course you will be able to:

Cut glass into a variety of shapes

Explore colour and light in order to create designs for glass projects

Prepare working drawings and maquettes

Cut and shape lead, apply copper foil and solder

Prepare glass for fusing / slumping in the kiln

Understand the processes required to complete projects to the highest possible standard

Use materials, tools and equipment safely

If you're self-employed, you might be able to deduct your enrolment fee from your taxable income.

Assessment

On-going assessment and via individual progress records.

Next Steps

Many students go on to make and sell pieces commercially.
