Be captivated by the possibilities of glass

For students without experience, this is the right course to start with. They receive a program in five lessons to learn the basics and experience whether glassworking suits them. We first work with the relatively cheap window glass (material costs about € 20). The first week you will cut and glue, then grind and sandblast. In the third lesson, prepare a relief that will melt in the kiln. The fourth week the technique of glass painting is discussed and the fifth lesson colored granules to merge with the glass in the kiln. The large amount of possibilities and diversity will amaze you!
If you already have some experience, you can also come to this class. This course was created because the demand for the permanent courses was too high. I am happy to help you tailor-made!

A little warning… Working with glass is often addictive and it not a cheap material. Students usually switch to colored glass sheets to work with after the window glass. This specialist glass is more than five times as expensive as the window glass.
