Book in for a 3 hour beginners session which will introduce you to the art of glass fusion in a relaxed, friendly group.
In this 3 hour workshop, we will look at the different kinds of glass used in glass fusion then move on to design and make your own piece of fused glass.
You will learn how to cut and assemble your glass pieces then leave them to be fired in the kiln. You will need to return a few days later to collect your pieces of work - or they can be posted to you at additional cost (please let me know if you think you may need this option when booking so I can let you know more details about P&P).
You can expect to make the equivalent of two coaster-sized pieces of fused glass - but you don't have to keep to coaster size and/or shape! You can work with your glass to make one bigger piece or a few small pieces.
There are restrictions on maximum size due to the size of the kiln which I use for firing so your large pieces will need to be 15cm x 15cm or less - you'll be fully advised at the workshop.
You can work from your own ideas and designs, or you can use my ideas for inspiration, or follow my step by step guides if you prefer.
Maximum number on workshop is 4 people (adults only please) - larger groups can be accommodated in a workshop arranged specifically for you on a mutually agreeable date (many Saturdays are booked well in advance but please do enquire. Sundays and weekdays are also available for bookings).
Hot and cold drinks are included throughout the session

Fabulous beginners course - Sally is a great tutor and is full of enthusiasm and patience. Sally is very passionate about teaching this craft and enjoys passing on her knowledge to students. The course went by so quickly and we learned so much and it has given me a thirst to learn more about this craft.
Thank you Margaret, appreciate your lovely review ~ really looking forward to seeing you again soon so you can see the finished pieces :)
I had a lovely time on this course. Sally was so respectful and diligent in following covid precautions so that anyone feeling wary need not worry at all. I'm thrilled with the pieces I made and can't wait to see them fired. I would thoroughly recommend this workshop, lots of fun and Sally explained everything so it seemed easy. Would definitely book again.
Thank you Ali - lovely to have you along for the first Workshop back. Your glass pieces are going to be fab! Look forward to seeing you again when you come to collect them :)
What a great workshop! A very chilled out morning spent learning a new craft - so good to be out again after being in Lockdown for months! All sensible social distancing and hygiene precautions were in place and Sally had even gone to the trouble of making a transparent face mask for herself so I could lipread what she was saying....thank you! Sally is a fab teacher and made the workshop great fun; I can't wait to see the final results of my efforts and I'm looking forward to the candle making course in 2 weeks time!
Thank you Heather - it was lovely to have you along for the first Workshop back! Really enjoyed the morning and your glass fusion pieces are going to be great. Look forward to seeing you again very soon :)
