Come along and join us for an exciting day of creativity in the Cozy barn at The Butterfly Effect Studio in Halford.
You will learn how to create stunning fused glass jewellery by cutting and layering coloured glass pieces, coarse & fine glass frit , stringers & ribbons or glassline pens and mica powder. You will create several different pieces including earrings and pendants.
Whilst we wait for the glass to cook and cool you will also be able to create additional items like a sun catcher, a coaster, a hanging decoration for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, mother’s or Father’s Day, Easter etc. (These additional items need to be fired in a larger kiln over night but can be collected or be posted within 3 days.) on these larger pieces you can also explore the possibilities of kiln carving too.

Had a really lovely day with Helen making fused glass creations. Helen is amazing, giving explanations about different types of glass etc and is always on hand to guide or advise you. She is so calm and caring and wants her to explore your creativity.
Was a really fantastic day, would do again and would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Response from Butterfly Effect Studio:Hello Penny, it was great to meet you and I really appreciate you taking the time to review the fused glass workshop. You seemed to enjoy the activity and created some beautiful pieces. I particularly loved your lovely, happy sun catchers and your Christmas robin, so full of character! You sound to have such a busy life, doing so much for others, I was delighted you were able to spend time on yourself as you clearly deserve it. I hope to see you at one of my other workshops one day. Kind regards, Helen.
I spent an amazing day with Helen and some friends. We all made beautiful fused glass jewellery and objects. Helen is a fantastic tutor and so talented. She shared her expert knowledge and advice so supportively. Thank you. I will definitely be taking this course again.
Response from Butterfly Effect Studio:Hi Bridget, I’m so pleased you enjoyed the day. You were on a mission and created some stunning pieces, I particularly liked your idea for an animal mobile sun catcher, once you have all of the pieces suspended it’ll look magical. You were such a lovely group, I thoroughly enjoyed everyone’s company, gold stars to all my students!
Spent a wonderful day with Helen who is a truly inspirational teacher! Alongside a number of friends, we explored the different effects made with glass and had lots of fun sharing ideas. Helen‘s calming approach guided us all to explore our creativeness to the full!!! A fantastic day was experienced by all!!!! I highly recommend this course as a gift for someone special or as a way to spend a day with friends and/or family.
Response from Butterfly Effect Studio:Hi Angela, thank you so much for organising your friends to attend my workshop. I was delighted you all enjoyed the day as much as I did, what a creative group you are! The pieces you made will look amazing in your den, I could see your confidence growing throughout the day. We were lucky to have such glorious weather too. I really appreciate you taking the time to review my workshop, I’m thrilled with your response. Kind regards, Helen.
I booked this course for myself and a friend and her daughter after meeting Helen and seeing her lovely, creative work at a Christmas fair. We weren't disappointed.
It was a lovely and relaxing day. Helen is a great teacher - encouraging and full of tips and ideas, but ultimately letting you create your own pieces in your own style. Creating fused glass jewellery is a completely new craft for me - I loved it - I am very pleased the items I made.
Excellent value too.
Response from Butterfly Effect Studio:Hi Sue, thanks for taking the time to review the course and I’m thrilled you all enjoyed the day. Each of you created such beautifully unique pieces , it never ceases to amaze me how many different ways the glass can be used. I hope Emily was able to use some of her skills and creations in her school art work too. Thanks again.
