Final Courses for 2017

Fusing and Slumping

This sought after course is designed to introduce the basic principles of glass firing and offering an opportunity to be instructed by Ian Dixon.

 Students will be educated on essential techniques including a large variety of functional information; such as the best products to obtain professional results and scientific principles in glass fusing. You will be taught the intricacies of firing schedules so that you can confidently execute your own works of art.

This course is running on Wednesday the 1st of November, 9.30am - Approx. 4pm. This is the last Fusing and Slumping class for the year so give us a call on 08 9314 5811 if you would like to book a spot.

Crackle and Flexiglass Techniques

Discover 2 creative techniques using glass powders in the one 3 hour work shop.

Crackle is an interesting technique using glass powders to create a fractured looking surface design not dissimilar to cracked earth. A simple, quick and unique process that can be used in many fused projects.

Flexi Glass is a liquid medium used in conjunction with glass powders. It's a great way to create wafers of glass that can be cut with scissors, or punched then layered to create intricate detail. Additionally free form shapes can be created by painting with the Flexi Glass medium.

This course is running on Tuesday the 14th of November, 1pm - Approx. 4pm. This is the last Crackle and Flexiglass class for the year so give us a call on 08 9314 5811 if you would like to book a spot.

Liquid Stringer/Line work and Cold Combing Techniques

Liquid stringer medium is a specially designed vehicle that can be mixed with frits, enamels and powders enabling you to pipe and cold comb glass. Cold combing is a great way to achieve the details of combed glass without having to work inside a hot kiln. The piping technique allows you to create free hand line work directly onto the surface of the glass.

This course is running on Tuesday the 21st of November, 6pm - Approx. 9pm. This is the last Liquid Stringer/Line work and Cold Combing class for the year so give us a call on 08 9314 5811 if you would like to book a spot.
