Fused Glass Owls
Sat 28 May 10am - 1pm
£55/£52(c) • Friends £53/£50(c)
Come, spend the morning with our favourite glass fuser Simon Alderson and learn to make your own version of these exquisite barn owls.
You will begin with some cutting practice until you’re ready to cut out the bird shape. Once all pieces are cut Simon will guide you through a process of layering frit to recreate the colouring of the iconic bird. But don’t worry about being too accurate as you will have some freedom to colour as you wish. Finally, we’ll be experimenting with application and displacement of frit to create tone and shade.
All items will be fired in the kiln overnight and be available to collect the following Wednesday.
Look out for Simon’s other workshop (this afternoon) where we’ll be creating the most glorious fused glass lanterns – perfect for an evening in the garden and for a cosy evenings indoors!
