Beginners Fused Glass workshop aboard the beautiful craft boat in Hebden Bridge.

Workshops start at 10.30 am and finish at 4.30 pm.
This workshop is ideal for those who fancy a relaxing and peaceful day of creativity. It is a brilliant workshop which allows participants to be introduced to the wonderful world of Glass Fusing. The techniques used are easy to pick up and you will create a range of beautiful glass items that can be treasured or given away as special gifts.

During the workshop you will make a set of dichroic glass jewellery combining a pendant with matching earrings or ring. You will hand-decoupage a jewellery box to keep your beautiful sparkly jewels in! On the workshop you will learn how to score and cut glass to make a hanging star and you will also create a coaster and a slump dish! All this in one day with time for a delicious lunch and cheeky glass of wine at The Olive Branch restaurant.

The workshops I offer to individuals and private groups, are designed for art and craft lovers, beginners or experienced crafters, and for those who simply want to enjoy a creative day out. The workshops have proved popular with mothers and daughters and family and friends who wish to spend some quality time together. The narrowboat studio is a wonderful space, specifically designed to help you unwind, relax and get creative. The boat seats a maximum of 4-5 people depending on the workshop or party.

I am currently running full day workshops in Felted Textiles, Mosaics and Beginners Glass Fusing. I run one workshop in each specialism per month for individuals to book onto, with extra dates available for private full boat bookings.

What's included in the price?

Workshops include morning pastries with cups of tea and fresh coffee. Lunch is served at the Olive Branch restaurant, where you can choose from a delicious selection of Turkish salads, wraps or ciabattas served with a soft drink or a glass of wine, to help get the creative juices flowing! Tea and coffee are served throughout the day with sweet treats and cake in the afternoon. After a day of Creative Escapism with Crafts Afloat you will feel relaxed, inspired and a little bit spoilt!

No extra costs during the workshop. Glass items need to be collected once fired. Items can be posted, postage and packaging costs £8.
