Fusing Discovery Day with Amanda Mires - UK
16 Nov 2018 (day) Duration: 1 day
One of our most popular Discovery Days - a compact class to delight and inspire everybody - from the novice to the artist investigating the set-up of their own kiln-working studio. On this enjoyable Creative Glass School one-day course you will not only gain a better understanding of glass in general, but also expand your knowledge-base of all the firing processes including:
- Selecting materials & tools
- Combining exciting mixtures of materials
- Firing techniques for perfect results
- Adapting processes to suit your needs
- Expressing yourself through your work
Our aim is to present reliable techniques in a relaxed atmosphere, so that you gain confidence with firings and discover your true creative potential. At the same time more complex issues such as compatibility, viscosity and annealing will also be covered, enabling you to build up a solid foundation for all your future glasswork.
Our resident teacher, Amanda Mires will provide a class which will include demos, lectures, written documentation, plenty of hands-on-work and, last but not least - a lot of fun for everybody involved - book now for a class that really delivers!
