glass fusion for kids (6-15yrs) with an adult
Have you ever wanted to do something different with your child? Kids are fascinated by glass. It is an excellent material for children as young as 6 to work with in a safe and controlled environment. Making a unique piece of fused glass will give your child a great sense of achievement as well as astonishment at how the fused glass piece has magically transformed during the kiln process.
For each workshop, a theme and colour scheme may be selected in advance. The workshop will consist of an interactive introduction to the glass fusion process. Different glass products that the student will be able to work with will be passed around and questions will be answered.
You will then each make your own individual pieces using a selection of glass to decorate a base piece. Depending on ability, older children may be allowed to cut their own glass pieces based on both parent and teacher observations.
Please note: These workshops are for children aged 6 + with their attending adult. If you have extra children keen to attend, please contact us so we can arrange for you all to attend together.
