Once you’ve learnt the basics you can attend as many workshops as you wish (we’ll warn you, glass art is addictive!) and progress to our advanced workshops which can cover powders and reliefs.
advanced studio workshops – £250pp
These workshops allow you expand on your previous experience, to make a variety of pieces including large wall panel or framed pieces, with an initial size of 30cm x 30cm.
You will further your knowledge and understanding of the materials, techniques and processes involved, and incorporate glass line into your own masterpiece. We will take you through the glass-fusing process, step by step, so you can understand the finished looks you can create for your unique glass piece, including full fused and contour fused.
On this workshop you can upgrade to:
60cmx30cm for an additional £50 or to the maximum size 60cmx40cm for an additional £70.
The course usually runs from 10am-2/3pm and includes all materials & tools, refreshments and a light lunch at the award-winning Potting Shed based at Carpenters Nursery.
Places are limited to 4 on these workshops – if you’d like to know more, get in touch.
On location workshops
we come to you – any size of group
Our on-location workshops are fully mobile and we can frequently be found in church halls, Scout huts and community centres. We adapt our workshops depending on the age of those involved, their ability and any individual needs.
We regularly run workshops for all sections of Scouting, Guiding, the WI, U3A and church groups.
During this 60 – 90 minute hands on, workshop, we show the basics of fused glass and the group create either glass coasters or light catchers using sheet glass and stringers.
We’ve run workshops for businesses and charites including Shell and Home-Start.
These workshops are creating with you, for you. They’re a great leveller as everyone learns a new skill together and we’ve seen, first hand, the difference our workshops can make to team dynamics. We can incorporate wellbeing and mindfulness into the workshops – it that’s what you want.
During the workshops we show the basics of fused glass and participants either create an individual piece (a glass coaster or light catcher) or work together to create a piece of framed glass art to be displayed in the place of work.
We can also run workshops for large groups of school staff – again, either to create a feature piece for the school or individual items for each participant.
We take all workshop pieces away with us to be fired in our kiln in Sandridge. We’ll then individually package each piece and return them to you – bringing back the magic of the workshop as each participant gets the ‘wow’ moment when they see what they made.
