Glass Fusing - Garden Art
Half day workshops with Jenny Timms

"One of the most enjoyable craft days I have had and a fabulous piece of art too." - Louise

Create your own freestanding garden glass art on this half-day workshop for beginners and those with some glass fusing experience

In this workshop you'll discover how to create beautiful, textured fused glass art for your garden, combining coloured glass, enamel pens, glass frit, crushed coloured glass and stringers.

This workshop is suitable for beginners, but If you've already enjoyed learning the basics of glass fusing on one of our beginner's classes, this is a great next step up for your new fused glass hobby.

Tack-fusing involves fusing layers of specially cut glass shapes, frits and powders and stringers on to a base to form your design. The pieces are fired at a lower temperature than for a fully fused piece, resulting in a piece of fused art with beautiful texture!

This class will equip you to create your own fused glass designs, and teach you more sophisticated fused glass construction techniques.

We'll ask you to do some research, and if possible, some design sketches before the class so you'll get maximum benefit from your time with us. We'll provide guidance on this, if needed.

Your design may include shaped sections of coloured glass - in which case we'll teach you basic glass cutting as well.

The starting point for projects on this class is a base layer of COE 90 clear fusible glass, 30cm in diameter, already cut for you.
You'll cut coloured sections, place frit and other materials and build up your piece.

Once your piece is ready for the kiln, we'll fire it and mount it in its metal stand and let you know when it's ready for collection.

The course cost of £145 inc VAT includes:

  • Clear 30cm diameter circular glass base for your project
  • Metal stand (approx 90cm high)
  • Clear and coloured fusible glass, frit, enamel pens and stringers to make your project
  • Use of all tools and apron
  • Refreshments during the day
  • Maximum class size 4 people for individual attention
  • Initial kiln firing
  • All your work to keep, after firing
  • Eligibility for our Project Days Programme
  • Class runs from 1pm to 5pm (approx) at our Northants studio near Towcester
