Fusing with the ‘Wow’ Factor – Opal Seabrook

Thu 8 July- 10:00 am - Sat 10 July- 4:30 pm

£495

Course Outline

During this three-day course, participants will explore various techniques involved in developing intricate 3D designs in fused glass with a 'Pop Art' style. The course will begin with formulating fused glass designs including 3D structures. Starting with sheets of Spectrum and/or Bullseye glass, participants will cut their designs (both hand-cutting and using the Taurus ring saw), and explore further techniques, both pre- and post-firing, such as spray painting with glass enamels to bring shading and fine detail to their designs, which will be fired a minimum of one time prior to assembly. On the final day, participants will construct their multi-layered 3D designs.

Opal Seabrook

Opal began her career in stained glass techniques, but developed her skills through testing her ideas against traditionalist views, into fusing techniques. Opal uses a broad range of traditional leaded glass craftsmanship, merged with self-taught glass fusing techniques, to design and create intricate and unique fused glass art. Opal’s ever-evolving style is inspired by a wide range of sources, including tattoo, comic, pop art, nature, photography and art in its wider context, and uses techniques such as airbrushing, powder printing, freehand painting, and sgraffito prior to kiln firing, using other materials alongside glass to ensure her creations are truly unique.

Opal’s work is exhibited in galleries across the UK, including the British Glass Biennale 2019 and the Contemporary Glass Society CELESTIAL BODIES exhibition 2019 (winner of the People’s Prize).

‘I love to create unique art that makes people smile!’
