We will begin with a brief description of what glass fusing is, the types of glass in the studio, tools you will be using and design options available to you. Health and Safety in the studio will be covered.
After the demonstration of how to safely cut the glass you will start to make your own fused glass artwork, this could any combination such as pendants or earrings, or a small picture or a coaster, a dish or a curve. There's a large selection of coloured glass, stringers, confetti, frit and millefiore to choose from.
You can work at your own pace with lots of one to one tutoring available throughout the day.
During the day you will create several items of fused glass items, which will be posted to you after they have been kiln fired.
Information on suppliers, tools and materials can be given at the end of the day.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
Use of tools and all materials are included, your work will be posted to you when it has been fired.

Had a lovely time on the fused glass course. Teresa is very knowledgeable and helpful and gives you lots of advice which is great. Really enjoyed making a range of suncatchers and still have the excitement of seeing the finished product once they have been fired. Would thoroughly recommend this workshop for beginners and more experienced glass workers looking to try something different.
Teresa is a great teacher - super friendly and offering just the right balance of instruction, information and creative freedom. I really enjoyed my time in the studio and would highly recommend this course.
Response from Lappelli Craft Studio:I’m so pleased that you enjoyed your time in the studio, making lovely glassy art !
I did this course with my daugther. The venue was relaxed and comfortable. Teresa gave clear instructions and ensured our safety.
She gave us a free hand in the choice of materials and a free hand to be creative but was on hand with support or inspiration if needed. It was a great experience that allowed us to socialise whilst learning a new skill.
The materials available allowed for lots of scope and I was very pleased with the item I was able to create.
