Beginners/improvers glass fusing workshops in Hemingford Grey, Cambridgeshire

Description

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) at Gore Tree Studio. 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 £80 (plus £5 if slumping required and/or £5 for findings and glue for jewellery). Your glass pieces will be available for collection 10-14 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. Safety Notice: To order to keep everyone safe and able to enjoy the class, the studio will obviously comply with any government recommendations with regard to protection against Covid. So I will ask you to help protect yourselves and others by following a few simple steps 😊 • Please do not attend a workshop if you are feeling unwell or have flu like symptoms (just let me know) • Please use the anti-bacterial hand gel provided before, after and where necessary during workshops. • Even though the workstations are spaced out, the workshop airy, spacious and the wearing of a mask is not compulsory, I would recommend you do wear a mask whilst in the workshop. Disposable masks can be provided. • Goggles are provided for your protection (against flying glass) but if you prefer please bring you own visor.

What's included in the price?

All tools, materials and glass are provided along with refreshments. There will be breaks for refreshments and lunch. You just need to bring your enthusiasm, suitable clothing, closed in shoes and a packed lunch
