Fused glass flowers workshop at Hanwell Wine Estate
Come and join us in this fantastic workshop and create your own handmade glass flowers. Spend time relaxing and enjoy your creativity flow while trying something new. Our tutor Katherine Wilson will guide you through the step-by-step process, giving you the opportunity to get hands-on with your glass creation. You will learn to cut glass and once you have your flower shape you will then use a wide variety of accessory glass including glassline paint, crushed glass and glass rods to decorate your flower. The final stage is making the mould to create its unique shape. Your flowers will then be fired and fitted with a copper stem for you to position in your garden or place in a vase. Perfect for beginners, glass cutting is involved. You will make one unique flower which will be 9cm in diameter and 30cm in height.
