About the Course
Introduction to Kiln forming processes - 2 hour taster workshop.
Suitable for beginners. Teens welcome.
Making small samples of glass using different methods which will help you gain a good understanding of the process. You can then develop further in future glass workshops or create small keepsakes, like broaches, pendants at your leisure.
Once your work is fired, I then clean and fettle it before you can come to collect it from Unit Twelve, I will inform you when it is ready for collecting. I aim to turn work around within two weeks. I can post if required for additional costs to cover packaging and postage.
Any questions please do get in touch with me using the clickable buttons at the top of this page.
I like to start my sessions promptly as there is a lot of information to share with you. If you are running late - please do let me know. We down tools and pack away half an hour before the end of the session to allow any glue to dry in good time before I transport them back to my studio.

Went to an intro class and made a pendant, then returned to do the kiln carving. Naomi is fun, relaxed and friendly. We got loads done in the time - I finished 2 pieces. I really love this method, it has given me a very interesting pair of glass ornaments to put in my windows! Would recommend for a nice absorbing few hours, but it is best if you go along with some ideas before you start.

This is an excellent introduction to kiln carving and glass with inclusions and allows for the development of these skills. It’s always a happy working environment with lots of help and encouragement. The materials are excellent with a wide variety of Frits to work with. A most enjoyable and interesting experience
