Description

Glass Fusing Tealight Holders - mini workshop. "Very nice surroundings and a calm place to do some craft work - thank you." - Paula Make a set of four beautiful fused glass tealight holders on this fun workshop. On this workshop you'll create several fused glass tealight holders like the ones we sell in the gallery. You'll also gain an insight in to some of the basics of glass fusing - a gentle introduction to an artform many of our students have gone on to enjoy developing in their own home. You'll be decorating pre-cut glass squares with a wide range of coloured glass frits (crushed glass), enamel pens, glass noodles and more to your own designs. The workshop provides enough materials to make four tealight holders so you'll have plenty of opportunity to try out your ideas. What attendees have said about our classes: "Very enjoyable, paced well and creativity was supported." "Definitely want to come again." "Well constructed, good pace and very satisfying. Really enjoyable day and much recommended." "I wouldn't consider myself at all artistic but I found this great fun"

FAQs

Sadly not - due to the nature of the materials our classes are for adults only.

With all one-day and longer stained glass classes we include an info pack with details of the tools you've used and suppliers plus reminders of techniques used. This isn't included in half-day classes.
We'll be delighted to help you decided what's needed.

For fusing classes we're happy to advise on tools, materials and kilns on request.

Materials are included in all beginners classes - fusing and stained glass.
Please bring reading glasses if you use them, and sturdy fully enclosed shoes (no sandals).
Aprons, googles and gloves are provided where needed.

Because you will be using lead and solder containing lead on stained glass classes.
Lead is known to pose a higher risk to babies than to adults.

We welcome participating friends or partners.
Sadly there isn't room at most classes for non-participating friends or partners.

Of course!
Fused glass will need to be collected after firing - we will contact you when ready.

This depends on which class you're planning to book.
