Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

Fused Glass Easter Workshop with Ruth Adams Level 1

Information Dates and Enrolment
Share

Summary


Glass fusing is an immediate and popular technique for melting glass. Learn the basics of glass fusing to make either a decorative bowl or platter and four coasters.

You will have time to plan and make your project, as well as experiment with different fusing techniques using frits, stringers, inclusions, oxides and high firing enamels. You will learn about glass compatibility and different firing cycles for fusing and slumping glass into moulds. A fun, easy technique suitable for beginners and anyone who wants to further develop their creative skills in glass.

Ruth Adams has taught fired stained-glass painting at Central Saint Martins, where she previously completed her postgraduate studies in glass with distinction. She taught stained glass for ten years at the City Literary Institute in Central London. Ruth relocated to Stroud, where she works as a practicing artist, and she set up the glass department within the Arts School at Stroud College. She is a respected educator within this field, with an enormous amount of experience and enthusiasm to help you engage with this fantastic subject.

Your fee includes the finest materials to make test samples, a bowl or platter and four coasters. There is a wonderful range of beautiful fusing glass for you to use on your course, as well fusing sundries, frits, stringers, noodles, oxides and metals. If you want to make larger work, you may choose to buy some additional fusing materials from a supplier or the tutor.

How will I learn?

This course is based at our Stroud campus in the centre of Gloucestershire, surrounded by the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The campus is moments away from Stroud train station and easily accessible by bus.

The tutor will give demonstration and one-to-one support. The tutor will help you and check your work to make sure you are progressing well.
