Join Kate Park from Twice Fired fused glass studio to create two little glass birds.
About this Event

During a two hour workshop, you will be able to make up two glass birds, these can be hangers, tea lights, or plant stakes. Kate will take the finished pieces back to her studio to fire and you can collect from the gallery when ready.

You will be shown the basics of fused glass. It is a hands-on workshop, with no experience necessary.

Inspired by naturally occurring art forms, nature’s wealth of beauty is explored. From the tiniest, delicate seedpod or iridescent gloss of a beetle to the elegant formations of birds, each glass piece captures subtle tones, textures, and intricate shapes; hidden gems revealing themselves as the light changes. Using the highest quality hand-rolled kiln-glass, sheets are cut, assembled and cast, each one coldworked and fused in the kiln to create individually unique designs.

With a zero-waste policy, Twice Fired uses every single bit of glass that enters the studio, turning what others may throw away into something special. From the large sheets cut down, every bit is kept and used. The waste glass is hand-cut and fused into frit balls with these beautiful spheres of loveliness used on future pieces of work. Nothing is wasted and everything gained.

Explore the wonderful world of glass and experiment with a variety of techniques and materials. You will be guided through the process, all abilities welcome.
