Poppies of Rememberance
Pressed Dried poppy sun catcher
In this class you will make a copper foiled suncatcher from 2 pieces of clear glass that will have the dried poppies sandwiched between them (a selection of dried poppies supplied on the day). The sun catcher can be either square, rectangular or circular in shape. You will be given the opportunity to cut the glass yourself or you can have it cut by me.
You will be able to take your piece away with you at the end of the workshop.
Please be aware that if you leave your piece in direct sunlight the pressed poppies will discolour over time
Cost £45.00 per student max of 4 students (£5.00 is donated to the poppy appeal for each complete poppy piece)
Sunday 7-11-21 Morning workshop 10am to 12.30pm
Fused glass slurry poppy complete with 2 x glass leaves (1hr to make the petals)
On this workshop you will learn the slurry technique and will make 8 x petals to be fused into a double thickness poppy head and this will be fused in 2 x separate firings. In addition to the poppy you will be able to have 2 x fused glass leaves added to the copper pipe stem and this can have a personal message added (up to 6 characters per leaf) This technique is very simple to do and you can choose whether you would prefer a traditional red poppy or a different colour (selection available on the day)
Due to the firing process you will need to arrange to collect your completed piece from the studio the following week.
Cost £35.00 per student max of 4 students per class (£5.00 is donated to the poppy appeal for each complete poppy piece)
