ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
This is a one of a kind workshop providing the unique opportunity to create your own fused glass art. Before working on your 3 projects, Sharifa will give a brief introduction on basic skills in glass cutting, using of glass powders on glass, painting a piece of glass using high temperature paints, and fusing glass after which you will practice cutting glass to then start on your artworks:
Paint a coaster and cap it with another glass ready to be fired and fused together.
-Arrange small pieces of glass and glass stringers (spaghetti shaped glass) and build your project on another piece of glass roughly 8"x10".
-Use glass powder to design your project on a piece of glass roughly 8"x10".
Your 3 pieces will then be fired by Sharifa. Once cooled down, you will be notified when your pieces are ready for collection.

PRICE PER PERSON:
Sharifa Marhuby's enthusiasm in art started developing at a very young age whilst watching her two brothers churning out beautiful pieces of wall art. At the age of 12 she produced a remarkable portrait of a Head of State and proudly presented it to him. Greatly encouraged she made a portrait of yet another Head of State which was hung in the Primary School she was attending. With an MSc in Economics Sharifa worked fulltime leaving little room for pursuing her childhood dream of becoming an artist. On retirement from work in 2011 the doors opened to training on fused glass art in the UK. This meant the beginning of creating her unique art pieces.
