About the Course

In The GLASSroom inspiring, creating and educating through the therapeutic art of glassmaking.
This is a unique opportunity to try your hand at glass blowing. This course offers an introduction to glass blowing and no experience is necessary. The half day lesson is an exciting opportunity to have your first go working with molten glass.

After this fascinating and interesting course, you will leave with a new understanding of glass, gaining a great insight in to this most traditional of crafts. This is a very hands-on art form, the taster session will provide an extraordinary time learning new skills and will result in you creating your own exclusive pieces of glass.

We provide bespoke glass making courses. Our studio
is small and therefore we deliver a personal, individual,
high quality and fun learning experience.
Working in a maximum group of four with the
In The GLASSroom team of Fee and Rachel.

A 3hr glass blowing taster session for beginners.
The session will start with a short safety talk and will then move on to introduce you to the equipment, tools and methods of working in the hot glass studio. You will be given the opportunity throughout the course to gather glass from the furnace, shape and form it using various traditional tools and techniques, design and make (with a bit of help), your own glass tumbler and bauble.
You will discover the exciting potential of glass making and reveal your creativity by choice of colour and form. You will experience the thrill of creating your very own pieces from this engaging material which will be yours to keep and treasure.

Want to review this course?

My husband, my 81 year old dad, and I went on the half day glass blowing course with Rachel and Fiona just before Christmas. What can I say except that it was fabulous! They were both so patient with us all and nothing phased them. They were welcoming, interesting, and a lot of fun but always with an eye on safety. The session was built up slowly so that we could understand and practice each stage so that it didn't turn out like a Generation Game experience. We were given assistance where necessary but I can definitely say that it was all our own work. It was a wonderful day and was well worth doing. Even though it took us a couple of hours to get there I am so glad we made the effort. We are still talking about going back again. Thank you to both Fiona and Rachel for giving us such a wonderful experience (and yes Fee, you do have a lovely singing voice! :o) ) xx
