Making Glass Bowls Workshop

This workshop introduces you to the most popular form of kiln working. You will prepare a number of tests on the first day, using a variety of materials - metals, frits, confetti, mica, stringers and even cut glass! Discussions of kiln forming basics – glass, mould materials, firings, etc – will be interspersed with demonstrations and actual making. A few bowls will be produced over the two days. You will need glass cutting experience, or Cutting with Confidence

This workshop is held in a large, bright and airy (but warm) working studio. The workshop is limited to a maximum of six people to give you individual attention. All kiln-forming classes are taught using Bullseye glass - the première fusing glass. All tools and materials (and where relevant, the kiln firings) are provided in the workshop fees.
