How

1. Choose your glass base 2. Shape coloured glass 3. Create your design4. Now the hard part - Wait!
You start with piece of clear glass as your base choosing either a square (coaster) or rectangle (hanging) shape.Cut and nip pieces of coloured glass to make your design. Cutting glass is easy and you will be given full instructions. There are also pre cut elements, stringers (thin rods,) frits (coarse chips to powder) and glass paint.Now you are ready to assemble your design, attaching your coloured pieces of glass to the base with a little glue.Your glass creation is now ready for firing in the kiln, to melt or fuse the layers of glass. Once fused the glass can be fired a second time (slumped) to create a plate or bowl. All you have to do is wait! Glass projects will be ready to be picked up within the week.
