What does the course cover?
Karen will teach you the technique of creating Decorative Glass using specialist Frit glass, creating your own designs in preparation for it to be fired in our kiln. Beginning by deciding on your own design - perhaps a meadow or local landmark - you will be guided through the process of creating your design using glass. Your piece will then be fired in our kiln and ready for collection the following week. This class is perfect for beginners and also for those who have already completed a Frit class and would like to explore further.
