The fluidity, depth, and optical qualities of glass, along with its ability to transmit light make it an incredible medium for artists and crafts people.

Over the next 5 weeks,
Continuing where you left off the 1st evening, learn how to shape different forms, rake, encase, make 'twisties', simple murini, mix your own colours! Make hollow, florals, zebra & tiger striped beads, sculpt!
