Fused Glass (Two Days)

Date: Saturday, August 12, 2023
Ends: Saturday, August 19, 2023
Time: 10am - 1pm
Duration: Saturday 12th August – Saturday 19th August
Venue: The Courthouse
All specialist materials and equipment will be provided.

Design and make your own glass panel based on landscape and floral images with fusible sheet glass and other compatible glass products. 

The basic skills of scoring and breaking glass will be covered as well as some simple theory of the principles of glass fusing using a kiln. Consideration will be given to subject matter, composition and the use of colour to create a design based on floral themes. There will also be a discussion about how to plan and control the firing process to create the desired effects in the finished piece.

The course is led by artist David Teece, an established maker and seller of specialised glass art from the heart of Yorkshire. 

Inspired by light, colour and with a hint of the dramatic, David creates beautiful decorative items in fused and stained glass. 

A graduate in Art and Design and a fully qualified teacher, David works from the peaceful Garden Studio in the heart of Masham. The studio houses three kilns and all the other necessary equipment, where David creates his own art works for sale in local outlets and completes individual commissions for private clients. 

David also offers individual and small group tutorials in fused and stained glass for beginners and intermediates and the more specialised use of the vitrigraph kiln for more established glass artists. 

“ the skill of the fused glass artist combines not only the appreciation of line and form and the use of light and colour but also a knowledge of the chemistry of glass and how to use the kiln to achieve the desired effects through the careful application of controlled heating and cooling.” 

Suitable For: These classes are suitable for all levels, including beginners.
