Design and make the glass for a fused glass picture lantern. Turn your lantern in to a beautiful decorative picture lantern to light a candle in. Wether you brighten a room with colourful illuminated glass flowers, or create a multi panel story they look amazing.
We will guide you through making at least one fused glass panel (or more if you’re quick!) which will then be fired and inserted into a lantern framework, creating a beautiful decorated lantern ready for a candle.
We will demonstrate how to use the tools and equipment safely. If you want to cut the shape of your dish yourself, Jane will demonstrate the techniques. However if you are a little nervous, we can help! Then using cut and smashed glass and frit, you will be able to apply a bold colourful design.
Your pieces will need to be fired over night, but will be available for collection a few days after the course. Or they can be posted for a small additional postage fee.
The class is made even more enjoyable simply by the setting. The Glass Quarter Designs studio is well equipped, and has an inspiring, creative atmosphere and of course is based at the wonderful Red House Glass Cone. You could have lunch sitting by the canal or try our on site cafe. Take a walk around the beautiful historic building and visit the numerous other craft studios on site.
All materials and tools will be provided. No previous knowledge required. Please ensure you wear fully closed shoes and practical clothing.
