Description

Special Christmas Workshops 

Special price:
Groups of 3 for £165 (£55  per person)
Groups of 4 for £200
(£50 per person)
including

A glass of mulled wine or warm, spiced apple juice and mince pies to welcome you.

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 (ish) workshop.

All materials and equipment are provided, so whether you just want to take ‘time-out’ from seasonal madness, have a get together with special friends or treat someone to an early Christmas present, just contact me to arrange a date* & book, then come along, relax and enjoy yourself ‘playing with glass.’ 

After an introduction on health & safety, you will learn to cut glass. Then you choose what to make, for example:
A free standing, winter scene artwork that is perfect back lit** on your mantel piece or in your window.

Or
A 20 cm plate/shallow dish
Or
Three or four small trinket dishes, candle or T-light holders**.
Plus
Depending on time; at least 2 hanging Christmas Tree decorations.



Add festive sparkle with dichroic glass, silver & gold flakes or copper snowflakes; I will be showing, guiding and advising throughout, helping you to create your fabulous glass.

For further inspiration check out ‘Inspiration for Students

Your glass will be fused and slumped (shaped) over the next week, ready to collect, or I can post/courier at cost.
N.B. Items made at workshops up to 18th December will be fired and ready to collect before Christmas.

* Lots of dates available, some weekends, weekdays and evenings just get your group together and ask.
** We always recommend using with battery operated candles, T-lights or a tiny string of LED lights; for safety.
