Warm Glass – Fusing and Slumping Course

Sat Mar 9, 2024 9:30am - 4:30pm

$190.00 – $390.00

About the course

In this one day introductory course you will gain an insight into the wonderful world of contemporary kiln-fired glass. Once you understand how glass behaves when heated you begin to understand the possibilities of glass art. In this course students learn the techniques of fusing, slumping and texturing glass in a kiln through the making of practical projects and demonstrations. No previous glass experience is necessary.

What you will learn

  • A solid introduction to the skills required to cut, handle, and assemble glass sheets.
  • The principles of glass fusing, slumping and texturing will be discussed and demonstrated through project-based learning.
  • The design and production of three kiln formed glass pieces as part of the learning process, which are kept by the students. Examples include a textured clear glass plate, a coloured plate of your own design, and photographic image on glass.
  • Glass compatibility, annealing and firing programs.
  • An introduction to kiln types, kiln preparation and use, and firing schedules.
  • An understanding of types of molds available, and the preparation required for slumping and texturizing glass.
  • Safety requirements and procedures for the workshop space.

What do I need to bring?

  • Lunch for the day (fridge is available). Tea and coffee provided.
  • Please wear closed in shoes (safety requirement for entry into the workshop)
  • Wear comfortable suitable clothes for working and apron if desired.
  • Notebook for taking notes if desired – printed notes are also given during course
  • A photographic image to fuse onto glass. More information on this project will be sent prior to the course.

Payment Details

To secure a position in a course a $190 deposit is required using the booking system below. The balance is due strictly three weeks prior to commencement of course.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellation by the student:

We understand that sometimes circumstances change and you may not be able to attend a course that you have paid for. In these circumstances, your options are-

  • When cancelling more than four weeks prior to the course a refund will be provided less a $50 administration fee.
  • When cancelling within 4 weeks of the course, a loss of deposit will occur. 
  • When cancelling within 2 weeks of the course, we cannot provide a refund or transfer. However you are extremely welcome to send someone else in your place.
  • We unfortunately can make no exceptions to this policy. This is due to materials prepared, administration and turning away others once the course is full, and as a small family business we cannot absorb these costs.

Cancellation by the workshop:

  • All workshops have a minimum enrolment required for the workshop to run and in the unlikely and regrettable situation a workshop needs to be rescheduled or cancelled, the deposit will be fully refunded. Students may also elect to transfer the deposit to another course.

We thank you for your understanding.


We look forward to sharing the wonderful world of glass with you!
