Cromarty workshops- Anne E. Ferguson.
Glass workshop weekend.
These workshops are suitable for beginners - no experience necessary.
They are all separate sessions and participants can opt for more than one if they wish. For example it would be possible to create a small piece of fused glass in one of the Day One sessions, which could then be incorporated into a leaded panel on Day Two.
Day One- an introduction to kiln fired glass - using small kilns fired in a microwave oven, you can create fused pieces for jewellery or sun catchers .
There will be two half day sessions - 10- 12.30 and 2 - 4.30
All Materials will be provided.
Day Two - an introduction to Leaded Stained Glass. 9.30 - 4.30.
In this session you will learn all the techniques required to create a small panel of leaded glass and produce a finished piece of work.
All materials will be provided .
