Enjoy creating your own unique Table Centre Piece or Christmas Wreath in Glass as well as some exciting tree decorations during this seasonal workshop. Make this Christmas special with a sparkle of glass.
This is an opportunity to further experiment with glass fusing techniques. There are many possibilities and whether you are new to glass or have experience of fusing there will be lots to inspire you and ideas to share, with beautiful results.
For the wreath we will plan and cut our glass according to our design and assemble it in a circular form ready for firing in a Glass Kiln. Once fired it will be returned to Micklems Farm for collection. At home you can then use your glass piece and further decorate it as you wish, using ribbons, foliage or fairy lights. Add a candle to your centre piece or a bow to hang your Wreath in the window or on the door to make Christmas special.
Colourful hanging ornaments, Christmas scene coasters and T-light holders can also be made.
