No previous experience is needed! This is all about getting into the Christmas spirit and as this course is always in such high demand we are putting on dates for throughout December.
Our studio looks, smells and sounds of all things Christmas, guaranteeing you a wonderful day of festive fun, laughter and creativity. You’ll be designing your own beautiful bespoke decorations, learning to cut glass and experiment with sparkle and colour using decorative inclusions.
You will make unique decorations that can be personalised with names as gifts, or just made for your own tree. During the day you will make around 7 decorations, variations on a theme of one, or a set of completely different ones; it’s entirely up to you.
The decorations are fired overnight in the kiln and can be collected the following day (or packed and dispatched to you at cost) The course includes all you need to make, finish and hang your decorations.
PS. mince pies and spiced biscuits will be in plentiful supply!

We had such a lovely day. Jenny was so kind and patient. I had never worked with glass before and was surprised how easy it was to cut. We made masses of decorations and the next day , after they had been cooked , Jenny had very kindly put beautiful hangings on the backs and ribbons to match. I found this very relaxing, which I never though glass work would be! I'm a amazed how fearless i became of the material. Good fun.
We had a brilliant day! Jenny made it so much fun. We really got in the mood for christmas! Mince pies and Bing Crosby in abundance! The decoration we made will be treasured for ever! I'm so pleased with the results and the amount we made. Thank you Jenny an awsome day. I will be back for the basic fusing course.
Excellent course! Jenny created a date just for me and my sister-in- law, as we couldn't do the original date. Great venue, a very pretty workshop, that is spacious and inspiring. Jenny and Steph were really generous with materials and all of the equipment was excellent. We are so pleased with what we made. It's really addictive, so we are coming back to do more with our discount of a second course at Cheshire School of Glass.
My friend and I have been on this course. It was really good. There were plenty of materials and Jenny is a very inspiring teacher. We couldn't make the dates advertised, so Jenny very kindly found dates for us especially that suited us. Great value for money course in a pretty barn conversion.
This was the best course I have been on. We got cake and tea on arrival, Jenny was so inspiring and upbeat and the studio is so pretty with lovely beams in a converted barn on a farm. We made more that I realised was possible and we got discounts for further courses and buying future materials from a company in Liverpool. I thought this was really good value for money.
The course was so much fun! Jenny and her helpers had us cutting and shaping santas and snowflakes, penguins and xmas trees in all kinds of colours and decorating them with dichroics and millefoire . I went with my Mum and sister in=law. We loved every minute. Jenny made us feel really festive with mince pies and xmas music. We made so many decorations and plan to give them as stocking fillers and gifts to friends and family. I thoroughly recommend this course for anyone who wants to get in the christmas spirit and loves upmarket crafting!
