Children's Fusing workshops


These workshops are for children aged between 5 to 11 years old and all students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the duration of the workshop. (older children can attend these workshops but they may feel they are a bit immature for them) 
The children will have an opportunity to make their own individual piece of fused glass. They will learn how the glass is affected by the heat in the kiln and what the different types of glass are (sheet glass, stringers, noodles and frit as well as transparent and opaque glass ). All the glass is either pre-fused or ground on the edges, therefore there are no sharp edges on the glass, except with the frit and they will use scoops whilst handling the frit, there is no glass cutting involved in these workshops.  
There will be an opportunity to make one of the following pieces within the 1 hour workshop 
Bespoke lid for a small wooden box  (£22.00 including the box
Fish or Dragonfly (£14.00 each)
Small panel  for hanging in the window (£14.00)
