Discover the wonderful world of fused glass in the beautiful medieval village of Chilham, in the heart of the Kent Downs area of outstanding natural beauty. Each full day of tuition costs only £95.
Courses generally start at 10am and continue until 5pm, though we're flexible. You'll be given as much help as you need; our small class sizes mean that you won't have to queue for advice.
Learn to cut glass, building your confidence with float (window) glass before moving on to colourful Bullseye fusing glass. Discover how to create textured pieces through tack fusing, using confetti, stringers, frit and sheet glass, or make smooth full-fused pieces. You can expect to make a suncatcher, a decorative panel, a bowl or candle holder, coasters & / or some jewellery depending on your previous level of glass cutting experience. (Materials for two medium sized pieces are included in the cost of the class; if you're speedy or particularly ambitious, you're welcome to purchase more from us.) People who've done some glass cutting and / or fusing before might alternatively like to make more adventurous bowls, candle holders, light shades or soap dishes. The options are as endless as your imagination.
Your creations will be fused within a few days of your class (this takes around 24 hours not including any slumping). We can let you know when they're ready for collection or can post them to you at cost.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE'RE CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING ISSUES WITH OUR WEBSITE AND E-MAILS. PLEASE PHONE FOR DATES OF COURSES & TO BOOK. APOLOGIES FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.
What's included in the price?
The course cost includes all materials*, loan of tools, kiln use, refreshments and a light lunch. Time with the chickens is entirely optional :-) If you don't like them, just let us know and we'll keep them out of sight.
If you book two places on the same course, ask us for a 10% off voucher for a future booking. Please mention Craftcourses.com when requesting your voucher.
*If you'd like to use the deluxe dichroic glass, gold purple or cranberry pink glass, there's a slight supplement for this, so that people who don't want to use it don't have to pay for it.
