About the Course

Come and enjoy a workshop creating beautiful glass where the emphasis is on fun, creativity and relaxation. You will make a your own bespoke piece of art . I will be there to help you with your creation. I have been making glass for over 6 years . I love sharing my experience and tips with others I have done a number of courses and usually greeted with " I have never made anything or I can not do that ". When they have created and see their great results they go away proud. This all happens at my house in the studio or kitchen depending on number of people.
You will have the choice to use bullseye glass, frits, powders, confetti and strings in your design. The finished artwork will be fired in a specialist kiln and be ready for collection a few days later.
No previous experience is required.
My workshops run all year round.

First off newly retired I wanted something crafty to do and came across Julie and her glass classes,I booked a half day and thoroughly enjoyed it making earrings and a necklace and decorative plaque, Julie is so easy going and full of knowledge of her craft,so I thought my friends would love the Xmas class and we weren't disappointed,definitely worth a try,excellent.

I did a glass fusing course with two of my friends and we had a brilliant time. Julie was very welcoming and friendly and explained everything really well. She gave advice, but let our own creativity shine. I will definitely be going back for more!

I went to Julies wanting make a picture in a theme of a beach view. Julie explained how everything worked and how the glass changes in firing I learnt about glass making and the process far more than I expected . After looking at examples of Julies work . I decided to make a field of poppies picture and I love the result. I really did have fun and found it relaxing thank you.

I attended this half day course and was amazed what I could and did achieve. Julie explains things very well and put me at ease. Showed work that had worked and some that didnt which helped me understand the glass process and firing. My work of art is now on my dining table for all to see. I am going back in the new year to create more . Thank you again for this wonderful experience .

I have done a couple of days course for fused glass in the past and wanted to brush up on what I had learnt and gain more confidence. Julie was excellent and passed on some great tips and is very nice and friendly!

I have attended two of Julie's workshops so far making Christmas decorations and coasters. I have absolutely no artistic talent yet with Julie's expertise, help, advice and extreme patience I have produced works of art that I am delighted to display in my home. Julie is so lovely and welcoming and I cannot recommend her or the workshops highly enough - I will be booking again to make more Christmas decorations now I have 'the bug'.

Have made Christmas decorations and coasters with Julie and have had a great time on both occasions. Julie is very welcoming and patient with regards to explaining all the ins and outs of glass. Would recommend to anyone.

Loved our craft making sessions with Julie, made great Christmas decorations on our first visit and beautiful jewellry on our second. Not being a crafty lady Julie is a great teacher and host a must for anyone wanting to learn something new.

Julie is an excellent and very patient tutor, I made a wonderful glass plaque with different types of flowers. I can highly recommend Julie who is not only extremely knowledgeable but is a very warm and friendly lady
