Plan of the Day:

You will be welcomed with refreshments before Jazz gives a short introduction to glass fusing and the wide range of techniques used. Having talked you through the projects for the day, and having drawn inspiration from the Pitfield Barn flower fields, you will have time to think about your own creative ideas, before selecting colours for your own flowers from a wide range of options. Jazz will then introduce you to glass cutting, and with expert guidance, you will cut and shape your glass to create the petals for your flowers. Following a break for a delicious Pitfield Barn lunch, you will construct your flower designs, with the opportunity to use accessory glass to add details to your creations. Once your 2 pieces are complete, you will have the opportunity to use the off cuts of glass to create smaller flowers, either to wear as a brooch or mounted on a piece of clear glass to create a glass hanger. At the end of the day, Jazz will take your creations away for firing and your finished pieces will be posted to you within about 3 weeks of the course day, ready for display. Your 3D flowers will be suitable for indoor or outdoor display, and Jazz will mount each of them on a stem before posting them to you.
