This course is a week of two halves. During the first part of the week, you will create glass fish and birds while in the latter half, you will be shown how to add a third dimension using wire modelling techniques. You will receive pre-cut clear glass shapes, which you will bring to life through careful application of finely ground coloured glass, known as glass frits, to their lightly glued surface. These will be fired in a kiln before you finish them with wire feet, wings or fins. This course does not require experience of kiln formed glass as there is no glass cutting involved, but you do need a steady hand. You should return home with at least two finished pieces.
