About this course

Stained glass is a beautiful and creative medium. This course will show you how to produce interesting patterns, textures and shapes in glass.
You will cover the basic principles of glass fusing including positive relief, negative relief, tack fusing, full fusing, use of confetti and stringers. Additionally you will undertake an individual project of your own choosing including the use of slump moulds. The programme for students with some experience in glass fusing will be by negotiation.

How will I be taught?

Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstration, instructions, one-to-one tutorial guidance, group discussions and you will be encouraged to look at the work of other craftspeople and artists, both contemporary and historical and keep a sketchbook/ notebook to record goals/ ideas, processes and progress.
