This course is a terrific opportunity to make exciting decorations from glass.
You will be guided through the stages required to make fused glass ornaments based on a series of geometric shapes, which can be assembled and decorated in a variety of different ways to make unique outcomes.
There will be enough time and glass provided to make a range of ornaments and you will be given individual support and guidance to design and make your own bespoke work in response to the task.
