Glass Fusing & Kiln Forming Introductory course - 2 days
10am - 5pm

The brand new Hart Glass studio will be holding glass fusing workshops from the end of August 2017. We’re in the same location in Cavendish, Suffolk, but now with three new dedicated areas of work; a large light and airy cutting room, kiln and cold working room and mould making room, courses are set to be better than ever!
We will be running two day courses once a month for four students per workshop. So, if you have ever wondered, ‘How do they do that?’ or thought, ‘I’d love to have a go!’ this is your perfect chance to give that creative spark a chance to shine. If you’re a beginner with burning curiosity, or you’ve done some glasswork and you’d like to indulge your skills, a relaxed studio environment guarantees a fun, informative and inspirational experience.

These introductory courses aim to give you a taste of a wide variety of glass fusing techniques and a clear understanding of the processes.

A few testimonials from my lovely students!

We spent 3 brilliant days learning how to cut, grind, colour and fuse glass and made glass pendants and birds for a chandelier. Laura is an excellent teacher, very hands off allowing you to experiment but with advice at key points to ensure you get the result you are looking for. I can't wait for September to do my next project.

I was given this 2 day course as a present and it has turned out to be the best I've ever had. I have a small kiln and have tried glass fusing with not much success . I have worked as a glazier and lead light maker for the last 40 years but she taught me things about glass I had not known before. Laura was a very good teacher and a good host. I would recommend her to anyone even those who have never worked glass before.

Frank Martin

Great 3 days spent with Laura; Laura is a fab friendly, informative, helpful and encouraging tutor. A incredibly well stored workshop or an Aladdin's Cave may be a better description. I learned the basics of glass fusing, made some great pieces of fused glass, had lots interesting conversations, a few laughs and Laura's enthusiasm and guidance has ensured I will definitely take up this craft!
Many thanks to a talented lady.

Carole Pollock

My husband and I spent the day with Laura in her studio whilst on our honeymoon. It was a fantastic experience and we made a wonderful piece which I'm very proud of and also a great memory.

Alona Bettinson

I have been on a 3 day glass making course with Laura Hart and must admit it was probably one of the best courses I have ever taken - Laura encourages and helps so effortlessly which puts you straight away at ease - To make your own glass ware is so exciting (I didn't realise glass was so versatile) So glad I took this class and will be going back to make Christmas presents :-)
Check out Laura's website and see what beautiful things she makes too

Amanda Grant

I've just spent three days on Laura's glass art course. I absolutely loved it and can't wait to go again. Laura is an inspiring teacher with endless patience and a great sense of humour making it a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I highly recommend this course with Laura. You must check out her work...it is incredibly beautiful

Anthea Salem

A fantastic course! Laura covers a whole variety of different techniques, and allows plenty of time to try things out. As a teacher she offers support when needed, plenty of encouragement to try new things out, and suggestions to make things even better. Whether a novice with glass, or someone with experience, you will come away having learnt loads, but also with lots of hints and tips to give your pieces a more professional look. And you begin to get an understanding of the amount of work, time and skill that goes into making the sorts of beautiful pieces Laura makes!
Overall I felt I learnt masses, in a way that I can remember and apply back home, and had a huge amount of fun along the way!

Lucy

Laura is an amazing teacher, I have learnt more in two days with her than a 10 week evening class. She explains clearly and allows your creative energy to flow. I would highly recommend her glass courses. This two day course was a birthday present, one of the best. Her own work is incredible and you should check it out.

Liz Wells

Working with Laura was an excellent experience. I had only basic knowledge of working with glass before my time with her, and through her patient guidance learn a great deal in just a short space of time. Her workshop is inspiring and her many projects on the go decorate the space wonderfully, with hidden gems of glass-work in every corner. I would highly recommend this course, and Laura!

Robin Silcock

I've been on many courses and workshops, this was the best ever. It's three days full on intensive but you get quality teaching from a real professional artist who really knows her stuff. I learnt so much and my work is now finished to a much higher standard. If you only ever do one glass fusing workshop do this one, you won't regret it.

Sarah Luke

Have just completed a 2 day fusing course, and wished I'd booked for 3 ! I thoroughly enjoyed every moment and have learnt loads. Laura is a very patient individual whose calm manner helps quieten any nerves as she shows you how to refine your work.
I have discovered the value of cold working which can only improve the quality of my work. Thanks again Laura.
I would highly recommend this course as it gives you the flexability to try your own ideas with back up when needed with the guidance of Laura.
