Reactive Glass Fusing
with Helga Watkins-Baker
 
reactive glass fusing
 
COURSE OUTLINE:
On this course we will combine Bullseye sheet glass, powder, frit or metal foils to get reactions when fusing, resulting in special colours and effects. We will experiment with the use of reactive opal and clear glasses with copper-bearing glasses or copper leaf or silver foil, or fuse sulphur or copper-bearing glass, powder, and frit with other reactive elements. Reactions range from subtle to dramatic and will enable you to develop new inspirations in glass design.
 
TUTOR PROFILE - HELGA WATKINS-BAKER:

She was chairperson of the Contemporary Glass Society from 2004-8, and was an original founder of the Liquid Glass Centre. Her glass work is an interpretation of ideas concerning nature, time, and the energy of natural forces and elements, such as air, water, light. She has worked in glass education for a number of years, and in 2010 published Kiln Forming Glass an in-depth guide to kiln processes for glass. She is co-director of The Glass Hub.

IMPORTANT! Due to the cooling down processes involved with all glassmaking it is not possible for students to take work home on the day it is made. Work needs to cool slowly in our kilns and may be collected at a later time by arrangement or carefully packaged and posted to you for £20 (Our cost, no more).
