Glass Workshop with Mrs Balkwill

A small group of children were able to do a specialised glass workshop with Mrs Balkwill.

 

The pupils learned different methods of producing an object using glass.

 

First, they cut and assembled glass for a mosaic design of their choice. Then, they used different techniques such as drawing with glass pens, or using glass powders, frit and confetti. The items were then fired in the kiln.

 

You can see a collection of pictures of these fabulous pieces of glass in our gallery.
