Contact course provider
About the Course
This workshop will give you a taste of the exciting possibilities of working with glass to make your own unique fused glass art. Enjoy learning something new in a friendly and relaxed environment with like-minded people.
The course is designed to suit all levels. Small group sizes mean that you can work at your own level and explore new ideas for working with glass.
You will learn how to cut glass safely and then design and assemble your piece(s) ready for kiln firing.
The courses take place in the artist's studio in Cheshire and includes all materials and tools required for the day - plus a delicious home-made lunch.
A good selection of specialist books and design resources are available for use at the studio. Your work will be fired after the workshop and ready for collection 1-2 weeks later.

What's included in the price?
A range of professional materials are included on this course as well as all tools required for the day.
The price also includes a delicious home-made lunch (including gorgeous cakes) and tea, coffee etc throughout the day.
I enjoyed my first glass fusion course (Nov 16) that much that I signed up for another one in January 17 with a friend. On arrival you are welcomed in with a hot drink of your choice. In the morning you make a clear piece of art work / ornament using 'float' glass. In the afternoon you move on to 'spectrum' glass where colours used. Patricia offers just the right amount of guidance / tuition whilst at the same time you can enjoy doing a bit of what you fancy. The two homemade soups (most guests try both!) and bread is delicious. Hard to find room for the equally delicious cakes on offer. I'm delighted with my glass pieces and look forward to another session towards the end of this year. I can highly recommend.

My best friend bought me this amazing gift. It's the best present I've ever had! I've never done anything like this before but Patricia is so talented at both explaining and producing great work that I felt confident to just get stuck in. I can't wait to see what my fish and my house turn out like after firing. Fiona and I were already planning our next course on our way home!
Many thanks to Patricia and her family for a fantastic day including an absolutely delicious lunch. Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Spent today on Patricia's short glass fusing course which was brilliant. I'm not very artistic but it appears you don't need to be. Created a wall hanging and plaque to mount and frame which I am pleased as punch with. Met some lovely people and the tea and cakes were pretty good too.

Had a fantastic day on the Stained glass course. I made a
panel. Learnt loads and got a great meal. What's made me book
the next course on fusing is the great informal learning experience you get at Patricia's. I've made my cutting board already and have started buying the tools. What more can I say.

My partner bought me a gift voucher as a birthday present for glass fusing. It was a great prezzie because I had just bought a kiln.
Patricia is a very likable, friendly & patient tutor. The facilities are excellent, plenty of equipment and a varied choice of materials for everyone's needs.
The home cooked food just added that extra special touch to a very pleasant and thoughly enjoyable day. I'm really pleased with my fused glass plate. I would highly recommended Patricia and her course. Excellent teacher - talented artist.

Had a great day, I am really thrilled with the result of my glass fused plaque. The facilities were great- intimate but well equipped and we had a lovely lunch provided by Patricia and her family. I will definitely do another course with her she was a wonderful patient and inspirational teacher

I went along with some friends and really enjoyed the day. I had no experience whatsoever but that didn't matter as Patricia was on hand all the time to guide us through. We had full use of all of her equipment - and the lunch was excellent.
We are now saving up for the mosaic course!

Very informative with excellent demonstration and teaching of fusing skills.
All equipment was provided in excellent surroundings. A very enjoyable day no matter what previous experience level. Hope to enrol for other courses with this Artist.

A great and informative day. Lovely home cooked food too. Came back with all the information and skills I need to get started fusing glass along with a selection of pie5ces that I made on the day. Highly recommended.

I've been lucky enough to have been on two of Patricia's craft courses - one fused glass and a mosaic one too.
I thoroughly enjoyed both courses - she's an excellent tutor! She creates a relaxed environment and explains everything really clearly giving expert advice and a helping hand when needed!!
I was delighted with the artwork I created on both days and have to say I have become somewhat addicted and that is very much down to Patricia's enthusiasm for her work which she passes onto her students!!

Really enjoyed the glass fusion workshop and was very pleased with the plate I made, which now has pride of place in my dining room. I've also attended Patricia's mosaic and stained glass workshops which were brilliant. Having all the materials provided and a good teacher to boot was well worth it. Oh, and the lunch's were very tasty as well!

Fantastic course, ended up making a lovely dish to stand a candle on and two matching tea light holders. The course was informative with all materials and a lovely lunch provided. I attended with my cousin and we were so impressed that we are going to complete Patricia's mosaic course in June.
