Fancy making your very own personalised glass Christmas baubles? This taster workshop will get you into the festive spirit, as our calligraphy artist Panna Chauhan teaches you how to hand-decorate a set of 3 Christmas baubles which you will take home to hang with pride on your tree, or as perfect, personalised gifts for family and friends. In the first hour, you will concentrate on the traditional calligraphy letter-making and learn the basics. Then you will practice on acetate to get an idea of what it will look and feel like, so you'll have plenty of time to experiment and play with ideas. You will move onto working with the glass baubles once you feel more confident, to ensure they look fantastic! As you will be working on glass, you will use special gold, silver and black pens, which will have a very Christmassy aesthetic. There will also be a range of decorative items you can use to fill your baubles.

What's included in the price?

We invite you to join us, leave any day-to-day worries behind, and immerse yourself in being creative. Spaces on our workshops and courses are limited so that our creative team of artists and makers can offer you the hands-on help and support you need to make the most of your time with us. All the equipment and materials you will need are included in the price, unless stated otherwise, plus light refreshments (a selection of Shibui teas, coffee, hot chocolate, and sweet or savoury snacks). On full day workshops you are welcome to bring your own lunch to eat inside or out; or there are a wide range of independent sit-in or takeaway delis, cafés, and restaurants, plus supermarkets, within a 5-10 minute walk.
