You could make what you liked within the limits of a certain overall size - so I decided on two coasters, and a kind of retro square design...
I had to cut out all of those white, blue and green squares of glass. You use a similar technique to cutting tiles. Score and snap. Although the glass is sharper and my hands ended up cut to shreds! (Ok, slight exaggeration, but I had a few cuts! Most people didn't, so I'm not sure whether I'm clumsy or something...?)
I stacked the glass squares into the design I wanted and semi-stuck them with glue. (I say semi, because they were still moving all over the place as the glue was so wet.) You leave your positioned pieces with the ladies who run the course, to be fired in the kiln - and these are the finished items!
I'm very pleased with them - worth the blood!!!
My sister in law made a very cute beach hut plaque...
How gorgeous is that?! And she quickly threw together another plaque at the end with some pre-cut colourful bits of glass. We absolutely love the result, so bright and cheerful!
She's clearly a natural crafter!!
I hope this is the start of more creative times together! ;)
