Finally Some New Workshops

It’s taken me a while to plan these in – but I thought I better get some dates in the diary before I get fully booked up!

A few dates listed below, which may get added to, or moved, depending on booking or requirements.

The Introduction to Glass Fusing is a full day session (we usually start around 10/10.30am and finish around 4.30pm); on this, you’ll begin by learning to score and break glass safely, you will have an opportunity to practice with some plain window glass and put together a clear glass design.  We will then move on to using speciality art glass, designed for glass fusing in a vast array of colours – I will show you a few techniques and different ways to layer and assemble your glass designs.  All items will be fired after the session and we arrange a mutually convenient date for collection.  All tools, equipment and basic glass requirements are covered in your costs (if you wish to make something exceptionally large or using expensive glass, this can be arranged)

The Glass Taster Session is shorter, approximately 2-3 hours – during this relaxed class, you don’t learn about cutting glass – you work with a clear glass blank and learn how to create a colourful sun-catcher or wall hanging by assembling your design from variety of mosaic sized pre-cut pieces or glass frit (granules).  You should be able to make a couple of smaller pieces during this session, or one larger panel.   Again, the pieces are fired, ready for collection at a later date.

Group classes require a minimum of three people to book on them to go ahead, but won’t run with more than six.  If you have been given a voucher to use for a group workshop from either Craft Courses or one from Dawn Turner Designs, please contact me HERE to reserve a place on your chosen date.

You don’t need to have a Paypal account to pay via the button below, you can also use a bank card, just check out as a guest.  The blank text box is if you can do one of the other dates listed, let me know, as it will make coordinating dates a little easier for me.
