Alternative Techniques with Fused Glass Pendants

SUN 9 September 1-3.30pm at Barton Grange Garden Centre

Whether you’ve tried other types of glass-working before or are a complete novice, you will learn how to use and work with fusing glass to produce a range of pieces of your own design. We will begin with an introduction to glass fusing, including cutting skills and technical information. The session promises to encourage students to think creatively about how the pendants will be worn. We will cover an array of metal, fibre and glass inclusions, painting, and layering, as well as wire wrapping. You will get a feel for how glass fusing fits in with other glass art such as mosaics and glass painting, and how these can be combined. You can expect to create a number of experimental glass pendants to use as keychains, necklaces, or window danglers. These masterpieces will be fired later and posted to you for £3. All other tools, materials and glass firing time is included in the price. No prior knowledge is required and this workshop is suitable for all levels from age 16 upwards. £32

Upon completion of this three-dimensional hands-on session, you will take home your own richly surfaced piece that can be used as a jewellery, makeup or handbag. All felting materials are included, but you will need to bring elbow grease and old towels. You may wish to bring small found objects to formulate a personal decorated storyline. There will be some cutting and sewing of leather and trim, which may be completed at home. This workshop is suitable for beginners to felting as well as those looking to expand their skills.

Conjure up a lush eastern blend featuring frankincense and myrrh. Let the angels guide you to create sweet, floral, woody and musky blends. We will set the scene by exploring the history and passion of perfumes. There will be experimentation with scents to get a feel for how aromas connect emotionally and physically to different people. All materials are provided during the session including bottles, essential and perfume oils, and their eco-friendly dilution liquids. There will be some simple math, and use of a calculator on your mobile phone is helpful.  Take home a luxurious roll-on perfume, a linen/body mist in a gorgeous indigo bottle, as well as a certificate. There will be handouts to take home so reading glasses are useful to bring as well. This session is great for all abilities and levels with a minimum age of 16.
