Colour catchers add colourful, playful light that cascades into your home when the sunshine beams through the glass colours.
To create colour catchers you will use pre-cut strips of translucent coloured glass. the glass is then fired in a kiln. As well as beautiful colours to chose from your work will also get texture as we fire these slightly differently to a full fuse. Confusing you? don't worry all will be explained in the session.
You will be shown examples of what can be achieved and you will be able to choose your own colours from the selection we have available. You will create your own hook to include in your hanging so that you may use a ribbon or chain (personal preference) to hang your work once you have collected it from us.
You can create your own colour catcher to hang in your window at home or it would make a lovely, personal gift for someone special.
This is a shorter session and is suitable for children aged 6 plus (Accompanied by a full paying adult also). The health and safety risks are minimum for this session with a low risk of cuts. We will show everyone the correct way to handle the glass strips and do provide gloves if required – gloves do not stop cuts, only aid grip.
We have a selection of colours to choose from if you have a specific colour you would like, please enquire weeks in advance and Naomi will try and source that for you.
All materials, equipment and tools are provided on the day. You may purchase more glass in the session should you wish to do more. The ribbon and/or chain is not provided but can be purchased at your local haberdashery or craft store.
Light refreshments also provided (please advice of dietary requirements).
Contemporary glass artist Naomi Jacques will teach you during this session. Your work will be fired after the session, and be available to collect within 2 weeks of making. Glass fusing can be unpredictable with that we cannot guarantee all your work will turn out as you planned it to.
We often find when firings don’t go to plan you learn and can develop that learning in your next project. Also, these happy accidents can be truly beautiful.
