with Glass Specialist, Stevie Davies
www.stevie-davies.co.uk

Fused Glass bowls, dishes and free standing curves. Use various metal inclusions such as wire and shim along with coloured glass details to create your own intricately designed glass art.

Learn the technique of cutting and layering glass sheets to produce your own designs which will be fired over a specialist mould to create your choice of form. Pieces created at the workshops will be taken back to Stevie’s studio, fired and brought back Toot Hill School for collection, approximately 3 weeks later.

Although there is no specific theme for this session, you may like to bring along your imagery as inspiration. With an emphasis on colour and line, your creations can be as detailed, simple, abstract or quirky as you wish. There are a number of options for you to create at least 2 or 3 pieces in the workshop depending on your chosen design. 

Please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss any queries you may have, big or small and make sure to visit Stevie's Facebook page to find lots of photos of past students creations, just search Stevie Davies Contemporary Glass Art.
