In this this two-part workshop, participants will make a unique fused glass piece. You will:
• Learn about the science and history of glass from its beginnings through to the likely provenance of the local glass on display
• Discuss modern glass and how that differs
• See/feel first-hand the science and explore the chemistry behind glass fusion/reaction
• Learn to cut and place the glass ready for firing, including techniques such as the sgrafitto technique (as seen in the museum)
Please note – you need to attend both sessions
