About the Course

Gore Tree Studio is a glass art and crafts studio in a quaint little village called Hemingford Grey in Cambridgeshire, near the River Great Ouse, run by owner artist Carole Pollock.

Each beginners/improvers workshop is designed for beginners/improvers to learn new skills and techniques in a friendly rural setting in a small class (to ensure you get lots of individual tuition). Currently being held at the beautiful location of the Lodge Flower and Craft School, Hemingford Grey during building work at my workshop.

During the day, you will learn the basic aspects of glass fusing - how to cut glass, about the different types and qualities of fusing glass, firing schedules and be encouraged to create your masterpiece.
You will be able to make one or two fused glass pieces (e.g. small wave/curve, coaster, small dish or sun catcher or piece of jewellery). You may have your own creative ideas, if not, I have sample projects/ideas you can try.

Cost £75 (plus £5 if slumping required and/or £5 for findings and glue for jewellery). Your glass pieces will be available for collection 7-10 days after the workshop.

If you and a friend or two would like to attend your own workshop, contact Gore Tree Studio to arrange a convenient date.

Want to review this course?

Carole is superb at explaining the art of Glass Fusing. Although I had done a little before, I learnt more about the science behind glass fusing from Carole.
Groups are small (max 3) and there is plenty of time to produce your ideas.
Have just collected my fired items and I’m thrilled with the results.
I will be back !

As a complete beginner to working with glass, I thoroughly enjoyed my day with Carole. I laughed a lot, learned a huge amount about the craft and found creativity that I didn’t know existed! Carole managed our different experience levels well and allowed each of us to work at our individual pace offering support when requested. I have come away with some surprisingly beautiful pieces, so huge thanks to Carole and my fellow participants for a truly memorable day. I would heartily recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in the subject.
