This one day Fused Glass taster workshop gives an exciting introduction to this wonderful art form. Enjoy the theraputic effect of making something that is entirely unique and you will appreciate for years to come, or create wonderful gifts for a special occasion.
You will be encouraged to experiment with various materials and techniques to produce stunning effects on decorative glass items including dichroic glass jewellery, tiles, coasters, wall panels, window light catchers, dishes, bowls or free standing sculptures. You will learn the basics of cutting, grinding, stacking, slumping, glass compatability, achieving texture with stringers, confetti and bubble powders, colour with frits, metal inclusions and 3D effects with fibre papers. I promise to keep it simple and not blind you with science! It really is a relaxing, creative and fun day out!
The cost of the workshop is just £75 which includes lunch and refreshments and enough materials to produce a piece of dichroic glass jewellery and 3 artworks.
After the course your glass will be fired in the kiln on a 8-12 hour firing schedule and ready for collection the following week.
All workshops take place in our well equipped, bright and airy studio. They are limited to a maximum of six students to ensure comfortable workspace and lots of one to one tuition. A delicious homemade lunch and constant flow of refreshments are included in the cost. The workshop runs from 10am-4pm.

Open Sessions in Fused Glass
These sessions are a follow on for students who have been on the full day workshop and understand the basics of glass fusing.
The two hour class allow you to rapidly expand your existing skills without the commitment of an ongoing weekly course.
The cost is just £20 a session which includes unlimited float glass, materials, firing and refreshments.
As the cost of dichroic glass is so expensive, it is limited on these sessions.
Monday 9:30- 11:30 am Tuesday 6:30-8:30pm Friday 9:30-11:30am
As sessions are limited to a maximum of six students, places need to be booked in advance. Please call Alison on 07947002527 to book your place.
