About the Course
A very special workshop exploring the glass on glass process to produce your own unique translucent glass mosaic that will reflect and project light in beautiful and delightful ways.
We will provide you with all the materials you need, including a fine selection of coloured glass pieces and a circular clear glass substrate that has been framed in lead for you, ready to hang at home later.
You will learn how to cut, shape and grind glass safely, making a test piece before starting on the main piece of work. No pressure to finish on the day, as a goody bag will be provided for you to complete your piece at home if required. We all work at different speeds!

Extremely enjoyable day at Cakebread Studios with Tracey and Caroline making a glass on glass mandala.
The ladies are both excellent tutors.Very clear and concise instructions and tips and on-going support throughout the day. All necessary tools and equipment were provided along with an extensive range of glass to choose from to make the mandala.
I would definitely recommend this as a fun and creative day. You will learn a lot and have a beautiful piece to take home with you.

Response from Tracey Cartledge Artist:Hi Jan
I'm not a complete beginner in this field, I have attended a glass applique workshop before and really enjoyed it. Lots of help and support, plenty of materials to work with and a lively friendly atmosphere. I don't know where the time went and had not finished but was sent home with appropriate materials and tools to finish the job!
