Christmas Workshops – 2019


Take time out from seasonal madness and spend around two and a half hours creating your own beautiful fused glass Christmas gifts and decorations.
Weekends and evenings available.

We supply all materials and equipment, and guide you throughout, so come and play to your heart’s delight – you’ll be glad you did.
Your fab glass will be subsequently fused & slumped and can be collected, or posted out to you.

We will confirm and send details of ‘how to find us’ within a few days of payment received. And don’t forget to call or email if you want to ask anything at all.

Choose from the dates below.
If there is a small group of you – 3 or more – and these dates don’t suit, then contact me, we can usually accommodate.

Don’t forget we offer Gift Vouchers for workshops or for a set value, so if you’re looking for the perfect on-trend present? Look no further!



Merry Christmas Workshops


Create your own beautiful fused glass gifts and/or Christmas decorations – to give or to keep. Suitable for beginners; you choose what you make in this two and half hour workshop.

Weekends and Evenings available

All materials and equipment are provided, so whether you just want to take ‘time-out’ from seasonal madness or create a special gift for someone, come along, relax and enjoy yourself ‘playing with glass.’  You deserve it!
Or treat someone special to an early Christmas Pressie; just because . . . . ?

Choose from
A free standing, serpentine shape artwork that is perfect back lit on your mantle piece or in your window.
We recommend using with battery operated T-lights or a tiny string of LED lights; for safety.
A spoon rest/jewellery keeper
Two small trinket dishes/T-light holders. Again we recommend battery operated T-lights for safety.
Depending on time; at least 2 hanging decorations.

The design will be up to you. There will be plenty of coloured glass to use and you can add festive sparkle with dichroic glass or silver & gold flakes. I will be guiding and advising throughout, helping you to create your lovely glass.
For further inspiration check out ‘Inspiration for Students

Your fabulous glass will be fused and then slumped (shaped) over the next 1 – 2 weeks. I will let you know when it’s ready to collect or I can post/courier at cost.
N.B. Items made at the last minute workshop on 18th December will be fired and ready to collect before Christmas.
