How to make Django redirect to other page?

I have an app named "works" where all my works should contain. There are cards-previews to my works. So I want them clickable and redirecting to the work that is clicked and soon shown the html file of the work. The problem is in redirecting to that work.

In myapp/ is the following

urlpatterns = [
    path("", WorksView.as_view(), name="works"),
    path("<slug:work_slug>/", WorkDetailView.as_view(), name="work-detail"),


class Works(models.Model):
    -- other attributes --
    slug = models.SlugField(

    def get_absolute_url(self):
        from django.urls import reverse

        return reverse("work-detail", kwargs={"work_slug": self.slug})

So what class based view should be used in myapp/ for WorkDetailView? I have tried View, TemplateView, RedirectView, but neither of them work properly that I want to.

The last try was that:

class WorkDetailView(View):
    def get(self, request, *args, **kwargs):
        work = get_object_or_404(
            Works, slug=kwargs["work_slug"]
        return render(request, work.get_absolute_url(), {"works_data": work})

The work.get_absolute_url works good, but Django cant find template

My project folder:

project folder

But when I change the return string to return render(request, f"{work.get_absolute_url()[1:-1]}.html", {"work": work}) it works and prints "works/not-found/", but I dont think that it is the correct way

So how can I do it right?

The last try was to make that using View but Django tells TemplateDoesNotExist at /works/not-found/

This is fragment from my work.html

{% block body %}
<div class="intro" id="#intro">
    <div class="container">
        <div class="works">
            {% for work in works_data %}
                <a href="{{ work.get_absolute_url }}" class="work__item">
                    {% if work.preview %}
                        <img src="{{ work.preview.url }}" class="work__preview"></img>
                    {% else %}
                        <div class="work__preview">Photo preview</div>
                    {% endif %}
                    <h1 class="work__title">{{ work.title }}</h1>
                    <div class="work__description">{{ work.description }}</div>
            {% endfor %}
{% endblock %}
