Our half-day course is an exciting and intensive experience aimed at introducing beginners to the wonders of hot glass.

Glass artist Adam Aaronson offers instruction to small groups of people – so you can be sure of individual attention and impressive results.

During the course you will be introduced to techniques such as:

• Gathering molten glass from a furnace,
• Shaping and working the glass using a variety of tools,
• Working with glass colours,
• Blowing a glass vessel.

By the end of the course, we expect you to have made several pieces, usually including a paperweight, a small sculpture and a blown vessel, which will be yours to keep and treasure!

Each course is three hours long – either on a Saturday or Sunday, morning or afternoon.
Courses run almost every weekend and can be booked online.
You can also book gift vouchers for courses. Gift vouchers are valid for a year and can be used by the recipient to book online.

Half-day introductory courses cost £195 (including VAT) per person Group bookings of up to 16 people can also be arranged for private, corporate or team building events.

Absolutely Brilliant! I had a great time. Very small classes so lots of personal attention. Adam and his staff are very knowledgeable and competent. I thoroughly recommend this course and hope to go back for more.
Thanks very much for a great day.


Adam is extremely patient and an excellent teacher. The class sizes are small so you get a lot of attention and Adam demonstrates all the techniques used on the day a couple of times so it sinks in. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute!


This is something I've always wanted to try so when I received it as a gift I was very excited! The class size was small (only 3 of us) which meant that we had ample time from Adam to help us create our 3 pieces each. Adam and his staff were friendly and allowed us to be as creative as we'd like. He also gave us demonstrations on making more advanced pieces which was great to see! I will definitely be doing this again! Thanks Adam!
