Teaching Dichroic Glass makingHi...I'm John Dunn. Thank you for your enquiry re a weekend course in making Dichroic glass jewellery. Dichroic glass is a very exciting medium to work in and allows you to express your creativity through exploring the qualities of light, colour and iridescence. The alchemy of the kiln on Dichroic glass fuses your ideas together and is an added bonus.

work in progressI focus on giving students that extra 10% to give you a commercial 'edge' should you wish to sell your work after you leave the course. There is a lot of fairly awful dichroic glass out there. We focus on quality. We make 'opals' ! It doesn't need too much dexterity.

Beginners are also welcomed on these courses. We are all artists in ourselves. It is just a question of pushing the right "buttons" to reveal our abilities. Your tutor .. myself.. is well experienced in doing just that.

The studio is a large fully professional glass and ceramics studio beautifully situated on Brighton Beach, away from the traffic....you will need to like the sound of seagulls...

Teaching Dichroic Glass makingIt is fully anticipated that by the end of the weekend course you will have produced dichroic glass jewellery at least equal in value to the course fee....pendants..earrings ...'Bling' brooches etc. There will also be a limited discussion on fusing glass dishes with dichroic. (testimonials)

The course fee is £155 and includes all base glass. The deposit is £55. The balance is payable on the course. Dichroic glass is charged extra as used and should be about £20.
What should I expect from this course ?
