This 3 hour workshop is designed as a gentle introduction for complete beginners.

We have run workshops for up to 5 friends! Contact me if you are a coloured glass pictures being madegroup.

Workshop structure:

♦ Safety in the glass studio – it’s all common sense really!
◊ What is glass fusing? And other terms we use.
♦ Introduction to art glass; types & compatibility and the tools you will use.
◊ Learn to cut and handle glass with confidence – yes you can!
♦ Various design techniques

You will create up to 4 small pieces, coaster or tile sized (10cm square), two of which can be slumped into little (trinket) dishes if you wish.

These could be 4 the same, 2 pairs or all different. It’s your choice! 

We do encourage you to try out different techniques as we guide you through creating your own designs – abstract or pictorial – working with coloured glass sheet, frits & stringers and/or powders – see where your creativity takes you.

Before fusing

You create and place your projects in the kiln ready for firing, we do the rest.

Firing; fusing & slumping, are overnight processes and will take place during the following 2 weeks. Your gorgeous glass can be collected after that.  If you can’t collect we can post out. Cost depends on size & weight.

Unleash your inner creative, learn a little, have fun and, above all, enjoy yourself!
