One day fused glass course at North Norfolk Stained Glass



As with stained glass, fused glass is colourful and accessible. It’s popularity as an affordable hobby has led to extensive development by the raw materials manufacturers and now the range of colours, textures, accessories and fusing equipment is almost endless….. and getting better all the time.
Fusing glass is a much less regimented process than stained glass and in many ways is much like collage, offering plenty of scope for expression. It’s versatile as well – I’ve been making fused dichroic glass jewellery, wall-art and kiln-formed glass for years and it always seems popular with visitors to the workshop.

This course is a great place to start – offering the opportunity to learn how to make a fused glass piece of wall art – something sea-sidey is proving popular. You will begin by learning how to accurately cut glass, then when you feel confident, you can then choose your project design. There will be a range of colours to choose from that will suit your project and I will be on hand at every stage to guide you through the process – all the while talking about the various practical aspects of fusing.

As an alternative option, this day course can be focused on producing smaller pieces of fused glass to create jewellery or mosaic components using both the kiln and/or a mini kiln and microwave oven.

Most enjoyable day! Relaxed, friendly environment. Paul clearly showed the group each stage and allowed us all time to get it right before moving on to the next step. The finished results were amazing.
Now thinking of going to stained glass workshop. Something I’ve always wanted to try.

Beautiful location. Easily understood instructions. Paul has an easy going manner that calms any nerves you may have about trying this craft. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Natalie but her work is displayed in the studio & is inspirational. Under Paul's gentle guidance I was able to produce a piece of glasswork that reflected me and my art. Thank you.

Zoe - - #38025

I had a lovely time yesterday with Paul and Natalie. They made a great team. Paul helped show us the technical side and Natalie steered us with the artistic bit. I'd never done any glass work before but that didn't matter.. I'm looking forward to seeing my finished plaque after it's been kilned.

Linda - - #37356

A super couple very knowledgeable in every aspect of glass art.

Helen Kurtz - - #36805

We spent a fantastic day with Paul and Natalie yesterday. We learnt how to cut glass first of all and then worked on our own designs. Natalie was so accommodating and helped us to find ways of creating the images we had in our minds. It was totally absorbing and it felt wonderful to be totally immersed in creativity. Would recommend 100% to anyone thinking of having a go. We want to return to do more! Thank you so much 😊

Vanessa Baylay - - #36650

It was a wonderful day- both were very patient with us and Natalie helped us come up with ideas and encouraged us.
It would be helpful to have instructions to get there as we git quite lost and were late but they were understanding and didn't rush us. Can't wait to see the end results. Would definitely recommend

Margaret - - #36563

This was a great way to spend a day! Paul and Natalie made us feel welcome and relaxed, with excellent teaching and guidance, and all in a beautiful setting. You end up with a lovely piece of individual fused glass. Meeting Grace at end of the day was a delightful bonus. I would thoroughly recommend this course.

Wendy Penwill - - #36538

An excellent and enjoyable day. Natalie and Paul are fabulous teachers and all three of us made a piece of fused glass artwork that we can proudly hang on the wall. I will be returning for more courses with them.

Amanda Marquis - - #36012

What a fantastic day! Paul and Natalie are the kinds of teachers who make you feel able to achieve so much more than you thought possible. I enjoyed every part of the day and will be booking another course with them in the new year. Highly recommended

Response from North Norfolk Stained Glass:

Thank you for your lovely review :)
We look forward to seeing you again in the New Year!

Had such a super day with Paul and Natalie and would thoroughly recommend this one day fused glass course. We were in a lovely setting in rural North Norfolk (and were provided with excellent instructions on how to find the venue) and the workspace was set out well with plenty of space for the three of us attending the course.

The day started with Paul teaching us about the different types of glass and how to cut glass safely and properly starting with straight cuts and moving on to curved cuts which we were able to practice to ensure we felt comfortable with this. We then worked with Natalie to explore all the types of glass further and to design our own fused glass item. I am delighted with what I achieved and am looking forward to returning in the future to do another course. I would highly recommend this course.

Petra - - #35780

Highly recommended; Paul is a great teacher, his teaching skills were impressive and Natalie is a great fantastic designer with such beautiful ideas; I enjoyed the workshop very much, it was my first experience working with glass and cannot believe to have produced a beautiful outcome. The course is held in a beautiful and calm atmosphere, lunch was so yummy and beautiful served. All in all, I had a very beautiful day and I definitely want to come back! Thank you so much Natalie and Paul for a great experience, for all the knowledge you shared and for just giving us an amazing day, with lots of love, Petra from St Ives, Cambridgeshire xx

Ruth Wozniakowski - - #34711

Would recommend Paul and Natalie.They are both very skilled and excellent teachers.Natalie helped me to design and create a fused glass piece and also taught me how to use a stick cutter properly( at last !!).We discussed pattern making and cutting and Paul showed me what sort of kiln to buy.

They are both amazingly helpful .Excellent day!

Absolutely brilliant! If you are looking at this course just do it. Fantastic value for money, Paul and Natalie are so friendly, welcoming and awesome teachers. Paul was so patient with us, and Natalie really helped find ways to bring more to what we were creating and couldn’t have been more helpful. I bought this as a gift for my mum and sister (along with myself!) and couldn’t have been a better day. Left having learnt something and really wanting to do more of it!!
Couldn’t find fault if I tried - lunch and refreshments were brilliant, gorgeous setting, just perfect. You’ll leave feeling really proud of what you create, and have had a great day.

Response from North Norfolk Stained Glass:

Hello Jo 😊
Thank you for your fab review, l'm so pleased you enjoyed coming on our fused glass course. It was nice to see all of your pieces came out so unique and different to each other, they looked fantastic!

Best wishes

Lisa Davies - - #33336

Had a brilliant day making a fused glass panel with Paul and Natalie. They were friendly, patient and the course was lots of fun! Well worth trying if you want to have a crafty day doing something creative. I was up here on a weeks holiday and decided to do a couple of craft courses at the last minute. Natalie was very helpful and accommodating and I am so glad I was able to try glass fusing. Excellent value for money too! Would highly recommend

Response from North Norfolk Stained Glass:

Hello Lisa,

Thank you for a fantastic review! You were a pleasure to have here, thank you for coming 😊 Hope you had a lovely holiday too!

All the best!

Yvonne Afford - - #32650

Have just spent a great day with Natalie and Paul making glass jewellery. They were great, very friendly and welcoming also both very knowledgeable and creative. Started the morning by learning the basic glass cutting techniques with Paul. The oil filled cutter was a revelation! Then Natalie helped me to make some bespoke glass jewellery which I can’t wait to pick up after it has been in the kiln. Would definitely recommend this course as it is fun, creative and such a lovely way to spend a day totally absorbed in craft. I also thought that the course was excellent value as I made two pendants and three pairs of earrings plus had lunch and gallons of coffee! Check out the glass kits that you can buy from them too. Having seen them for real, if you can’t get to a course they provide a way to make something beautiful at home and good value too!

Helen North - - #31413

My two teenage daughters and I had an excellent day learning how to cut glass without cutting ourselves, and making some beautiful creations between us.

Paul was patient and attentive, full of creative ideas to facilitate the pictures we wanted to create, and pulling all sorts of exciting glass out for us to experiment with. We can't wait to receive the finished product once they've gone in the kiln.

I can honestly say that it was money very well spent. The biggest challenge now is saving the pennies to buy my own kiln, to start my new hobby!

(Also, very happy with Covid safety ... Very well thought out and delivered. We wore masks all day, socially distanced during teaching, and had plenty of hand gel and paper towels. We also had our own tools to use throughout the day.)

Thank you also for the simple but yummy lunch, and endless supply of beverages and biscuits!

Victoria McAuley-Eccles - - #29260

Top notch! What a brilliant day filled with creativity and fuelled with cups of tea. (Thanks Paul.) I can't recommend this course enough - I'm thrilled with what was achieved in the day 🤩👌😁

Siobhan Fox - - #29238

Absolutely brilliant day with Paul. Very enjoyable, very interesting, very therapeutic! Paul was very knowledgable and patient and could not do enough to help us throughout the day. A great way to celebrate our mums 70th. Would definitely do this again or perhaps the stained glass workshop next time.

Bronwen May - - #28547

The five of us (2 adults and 3 teenagers) spent a fabulous day with Paul and Natalie learning about fused glass and making our own pieces. Paul and Natalie are very welcoming and excellent teachers. We absolutely loved it.

Jeremy Storr - - #28511

Spent a lovely day with Natalie and Paul. Paul ran the day for us, taught us all we needed to know. Then step by step we put together our Fused Glass art work. Natalie came in to work her magic and add some awesome touches to what we were creating. It was a fantastic day which we both thoroughly enjoyed and both created something we were chuffed with. Thank you

Claire - - #27784

We had a wonderful day with Paul and Natalie who were warm and welcoming. Everything was at a relaxed pace, with plentiful offers of refreshments. Paul and Natalie were very informative and supportive throughout. It was lovely to see the creativity working with glass that they both have and sharing their knowledge of the skills involved in fused glass. We love the beautiful fused glass we made and would highly recommend the experience to anyone thinking of doing this. The location is set in the beautiful countryside and well worth a stroll on the public footpaths surrounding the area. Thank you Paul and Natalie!

Sue Moffat - - #27049

Thank you Paul and Natalie for a really enjoyable day and a lovely lunch. I am delighted with the fused glass wall hanging I made - I want to do more! Hopefully I'll be back quite soon.

Katie Burt - - #26180

I had the most wonderful day with Paul and Natalie and I'd recommend their courses to anyone interested in this craft. The course itself was relaxed and fun - each step was clearly explained, help was available if I needed it, and I never once felt rushed in any aspect. Paul and Natalie were excellent hosts too, and ever so friendly and welcoming. I've come away with a piece I'm really quite proud of, and I'd sign up for any other courses they are running in a heartbeat!

Sarah Cashmore - - #25371

What a brilliant day in beautiful surroundings. The teaching process was well planned and at the end of the day I had made a fused glass piece which I was pretty happy about. Paul and Natalie were so welcoming with almost limitless tea too! I'd definitely recommend this to anybody interested in learning a new technique.

Hazel Bowman - - #24792

Loved it all! I must first of all congratulate Paul on his navigational skills. He responded nobly to an SOS and put me on the right track.
The course was a pleasure. Learning about glass was as interesting as the work itself. The hardest bit, before even cutting the glass, was choosing the colours. I would most certainly do it again. The end result is a reminder of a fascinating hobby I should be very happy to take up.
Thank you, Paul.

Debbie James - - #21461

Paul and Natalie are excellent teachers. The pace and supervision were just right which meant I gained confidence easily. The selection of glasses to work with made me feel like a child in a sweet shop! I’m so pleased with my creation. To top it all, the countryside venue made my day a welcome escape from everything. I’ll be back for more courses and interesting conversation. Highly recommended.

Jane McCall - - #16401

Paul and Natalie were very experienced and made the learning process comfortable and most important achievable. After learning the technics of cutting and the tools required I then went on to learn the methods in making stained glass projects when sticking glass to glass, for me as a mosaic artist it was wonderful to see the result when putting some mosaic pieces into the frame. I will certainly return to learn more and highly recommend the course to anyone looking to learn this craft I can assure you it will be well worth it.

sara Beevis - - #15006

I was completely new to this art and completed an amazing piece to display at home.
Lovely, friendly, relaxed environment in a beautiful setting.
Natalie and Paul are a great couple and make you feel welcome in their home.
I will be returning to learn more skills.
Thank you.
