Discover instant glass fusing with the microwave kiln in a domestic microwave. Using a microwave kiln is fast and relatively inexpensive way to discover if glass fusing is a hobby you might enjoy doing at home. Discover the COE, (Coefficient of Expansion) of glass and how glass works together.
You will be introduced to the skills and techniques required to produce glass pieces using the glass fusion method. By the end of the workshop you will have made various small items which could include Jewellery pieces, pendants. Finished pieces can be incorporated into Stained-glass panels at later time. Results can be unpredictable; 2 pieces are never the same.
All glass fusing materials and equipment, such as safety tiles, safety gloves, cooling racks, fans, kiln paper and other specialist equipment required is supplied by the tutor at a cost of around £25.
