Our workshops have been developed to provide a quiet day of creativity and gentle tuition and we hope the feeling of going home with a desire to learn more.
This one day course aims to equip you with the skills, tools and glass to create 3 projects
A Pair of 9.5cm x 9.5cm Coasters
A 8cm x 20cm Hanging Wall Plaque / Suncatcher
A piece of Dichroic Jewellery (Pendant, Earrings, Cuff Links, Brooch etc)
We start the workshop with a description of the basic tools used to score and cut glass and a short demonstration on how to break glass safely. You will then be given the opportunity to practice your cutting skills on some standard float glass and once you feel comfortable, we will cut and prepare some pieces of fusing glass, ready to build into your first design.
After a break for lunch we will carry on and learn a little more about what sort of materials can be fused into the glass and then cut and prepare glass pieces for your second and third project
Friendly, comfortable and well lit environment
All tools and materials needed to complete your projects
Generous table space
Clear information and demonstrations
Project example pieces for inspiration
Because of the time associated with fusing glass, projects will be taken away to fuse in a kiln and brought back to the shop in time for the following Saturday
The course focus is always on fun and friendly creativity with lots of personal tuition from an experienced glass artist.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
Tools and glass for each student will be supplied and are included in the course price.
FOOD: Hot and cold refreshments will be provided throughout the day but we would suggest you bring your own lunch to the workshop. The marvellous Mulberry Tree Cafe is adjacent to the shop and if you wish you can purchase reasonably priced and always delicious food.
1 day (10:00am to 4:00pm)

What an excellent day I had with my niece on the glass fusing course. David Humphreys was a great tutor and host. Everything was set up to be Covid safe. With no knowledge of glass fusing other than browsing on Pinterest I was able to make a coaster, sun catcher and brooch. I throughly enjoyed the creative fun. David delivered the course with just the right amount of technical info. We had a great lunch (extra charge) at the mulberry cafe. All round a 5 star day.
