The venue is spacious, will be well ventilated and has sufficient space for social distancing where required.

We are holding a number of the very popular “Make a Curve” workshops but for the first time we are also offering workshops in which you can decide the shape of your glass on the day (either a flat picture or a curved arch). Here are links to read details of all the workshops and booking information:

Fused Glass Curve Workshop

Create your own unique and beautiful fused glass curve for yourself or as a gift. Suitable for complete beginners as well as those who have caught the fused glass bug! You will have up to 2 hours to create your own unique design on a pre-cut flat piece of glass of 23×8 cm. I’ll have some ideas, photos and examples to inspire you. I’ll show you some basic glass cutting techniques to create your own shapes and give you tips on how best to get the finished look. Uncomplicated designs tend to work best. I’ll take your finished piece away to be fused in my kiln then it will be available for collection from the venue a couple of weeks after the workshop. Typically around £34-£36 (depending on venue).

Fused Glass Candle Arch (new workshop for 2022)

A two hour workshop to create a candle arch which is ideal for putting a candle behind or to catch the sunshine on a windowsill. You’ll start with a cut flat piece of clear glass measuring 15 x 15 cm and decorate it with various forms of coloured glass. Suitable for beginners. I’ll offer ideas and photos to inspire you and will demonstrate some basic glass cutting techniques. Your finished piece will be taken away to be fired in my kiln and will be available for collection from the venue about two weeks later. Typically around £34-£36.

Fused Glass Jewellery with the stunning colours of dichroic glass

My workshops offer flexibility in cost and timescale to make unique pendants and/or brooches. I provide pre-cut shapes of glass and you have a fun and relaxing time picking through the trays of coloured glass pieces to choose your unique combination of colour and design. The dichroic glass used has metal layers on the surface that provide beautiful colours, often displaying more than one colour in a single piece.

The basic workshop cost is £20 – £22 (depending on venue) which includes the making of one pendant or brooch. Additional items cost £9 each which is payable on the day. You can make as many items as you wish within the workshop duration. At the end I will take your items away to fuse the glass in my kiln. Your items will be returned to the venue within two weeks for you to collect (or can be posted).

I really enjoyed the workshop. Good, clear instructions were given at the beginning and lots of help and input during. I loved working with the pieces!

Fantastic! Very inspiring!

Relaxing and well instructed. Great resources. Fun, friendly and supportive. Great company too!
