Enjoy a workshop creating beautiful glass where the emphasis is on fun, creativity and relaxation. Along the way you learn the principles of glass fusing. You will make a lovely glass art work.
Expert tuition is given by master glassmaker, Joy Greenhalgh. "I have been a full time professional glassmaker for 30 years, but I am also a fully qualified craft and design teacher. I love sharing my experience : showing people how to use the beauty of glass to bring even the simplest design ideas alive. Everyone is an artist and it is a true pleasure to bring this out in people. I provide ideas to spark you on your way, or please feel free to use your own designs. "
It all takes place in the wonderful Greenhalgh Glass Gallery surrounded by glass artworks. The gallery is on a river island adjoining an historic water powered mill nestling in the hills of the Derbyshire Peak District.
You will work with coloured glass grains, chips, powders, confetti and stringers. The finished artwork will be fired in a specialist kiln and be ready for collection a few days later.
There is no glass cutting involved in this workshop - not everyone likes glass cutting!
No previous experience is required. If you have already attended one of our courses, just let us know when booking and we can devise a new project for you. The processes you learn can easily be replicated at home should you wish to buy your own kiln.
Workshops run all year round, but in November and December we run some special workshops making Christmas decorations! These workshops book up very fast. Hope you can join us as we make our way into the festive spirit. Lots of mince pies as winter fuel.
Join in on one of our pre planned workshop dates as listed on the website, or get together a group of four or more to arrange a time to suit you. Discounts for larger groups available.
