Description

Covid19 Update: We are running classes while taking as many safety precautions as possible. Please get in touch. I run different lengths of classes in glass fusing and enamelling and this whole day course includes these 2 and beginner stained glass too! In this whole day course (approx 10.00-4pm) we will explore 3 different glass making techniques. Depending on the complexity of your pieces, you can usually make around 3 fused glass items of your choice including jewellery, coasters, hanging panels, tree decorations; 1 small stained glass panel and 3 pieces of enamelled copper jewellery. The class is suitable for people who want to learn the basic techniques of new crafts which might lead to a new hobby. Or you can just come to try something new and enjoy the creative experience. It is a great gift idea for someone who enjoys trying new things! Glass comes in many forms and you don't need any artistic ability! I provide plenty of ideas for inspiration. (Age 14+ (U16 accompanied by paying adult)) Max 3 people in a class for safety reasons - a careful steady hand required! • A whole day course will include the glass materials and metal inclusions, jewellery fixings and the firing of your pieces which will be ready to collect in 1-2 weeks. (Postage can be arranged at cost if preferred.) • The studio is equipped with a large range of coloured glass in different sizes and formats, various glitters and metal inclusions, kiln fibre, appropriate tools and safety equipment and electric kilns. A craft lesson makes a great unusual gift for a fun creative activity to do together. You can get in contact to arrange a date that would suit. I am very flexible on dates. I also run shorter classes from 1.5 hours long in glass fusing and enamelling. I am flexible and open to bespoke timing to suit. I also combine courses with my husband who is a potter and runs courses too.

What's included in the price?

I offer you tea or coffee throughout the day and a buffet ploughman's style lunch including home-grown produce when available. All materials and equipment are provided as well as the firing of all your pieces and any jewellery bails fixed for you after the class. You can take away your own finished pieces of stained glass and enamelling but I will fire the fused glass for you. (These can be posted within UK).

I love sharing my enthusiasm for fusing glass and using my experience to help people make a few pieces they are proud to display at home! I have a small studio where I make my own glass jewellery to sell via shops and galleries and I can teach up to 6 people at the studio in Worcester. I prefer small groups so that I can give each person the individual attention they need to make their creations - I have plenty of examples for those stuck for ideas!
