This is a course designed for one person. Already had a taste of the fascinating world of glass fusing and would like some one-to-one support?...or maybe you want to try your hand with a new craft with one- to-one help where you need it....or know someone that would just love to have this day all to themselves as a gift, then this course is just the thing for you! As a course for one person you will get individual attention, with guidance to help you decide on your chosen design, colours of glass, which kiln firing schedule to use, down to how to display your finished art work. Choosing from a large selection of fusing art glass and how to make the best use of the equipment and supplies we have at Tregarth studio, you will have the whole day to make a statement piece or several smaller pieces with one-to-one tuition and undivided attention. Above all, I want you to leave our studio having had a fun day packed with learning a new skill or building on your knowledge, a good lunch and that amazing healing feeling of having lost yourself in the wonderful world of making something unique and personal that you can treasure and be proud of for years to come.

What's included in the price?
You will be provided with refreshments and homemade cookies or flapjacks on arrival while we cover the health and safety policies and discuss your ideas. We have a large selection of clear and coloured art glass, frits, stingers, glass enamel paint, decals and inclusions, kiln carving and selection of slumping moulds for bowls and dishes and lots of ideas to help you achieve your chosen design. If you have a project in mind or need some help deciding on what to make, this course can be tailor-made to suit you! You will be shown how to cut glass with plenty of practise before you start cutting art glass for your design. Lunch is a two course meal usually served around 1.00pm but the beauty of a one-to-one is the day is yours so we can be flexible. Some students have said it was worth coming for the food alone! The afternoon will be spent finishing your designs ready to place in the kiln. The piece/s will be fired and ready for collection or posted on to you with an additional cost to cover post and packing.
Easy - Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts
I am a self taught fused glass artist with over 15 years experience of teaching the fascinating art of kiln forming glass. At the various craft fairs I attended, I kept getting asked if I taught classes. Could I.....would I? so I started and I absolutely love it! We live in gorgeous North Cornwall where our lovely spacious studio offers the perfect setting for a full day or a One to One course exploring the world of glass fusing. And according to my students, the food's not bad either! :)
