About the Course

Two hour private glass fusing sessions in our lovely new studio at Manchester Craft & Design Centre. 

These workshops offer an introduction to glass fusing and can be geared towards both children and adults. Sessions are for two participants and each person will make two 10cm x 10cm glass squares using a range of colourful glass and metal inclusions, which can be turned into coasters or framed art (N.B coasters are an included option but there will be an additional cost for frames).

Child friendly sessions are for one participating adult and one child (age 10+).

The dates are flexible to suit you, so just contact us via the contact button to ask about available dates.

We can accommodate up to three people if desired, for three people the cost of the workshop is £140

Michelle and Gemma were perfect tutors. They explained everything clearly and slowly, ensuring everyone had a good understanding of each step of the process.
They were encouraging when we spoke about our ideas and gave helpful suggestions.
It was a FUN day out as Mother and Daughter...something we are contemplating again....we have the crafty bug now.
Thanks Ladies Great course

A fantastic course with the opportunity to show our own creative skills. Gemma and Michelle clearly explained each step of the process. The small group made it possible to access all resources and mateials easily. Thank you!

It was a great session both myself and my friend really enjoyed it! I wish we had a little longer however I would absolutely recommend it to fellow craft enthusiasts.

Loved my introduction to glass fusing and the coasters we made. Gemma and Michelle are great instructors who clearly explained everything and answered all questions that I had. They were on hand to help out and give advice when needed.

The studio is a lovely bright space with lots of glass inspiration to get you feeling creative. Loved my morning introduction and would recommend to others :).

We had a great time creating our unique coasters under the fun & expert guidance of Gemma and Michelle. Our coasters sit proudly on our coffee table and always prove to be an inspiration and conversational topic with friends and family :). The perfect gift for someone you love, no previous experience necessary, as Gemma & Michelle will explain everything :)

Really enjoyed the workshop - it was pitched just at the right level for me as a complete beginner, every stage was explained clearly and I left with a very good understanding of the process. It was also a really fun class and I was made to feel very welcome. Thanks again to both of you, and I hope to be on more of your workshops in the future

I'd never undertaken a crafty course before but Gemma and Michelle were fantastic trainers and made me feel at ease. I really enjoyed myself and would definitely recommend their course to anyone.

Fab way to spend a few hours. Expert and friendly tuition in a small group so you are fully supported. All tools and materials prepared and ready for you to start. Good humoured bunch! Strangely relaxing craft! My next visit will be my fourth and I have different pieces from each occasion - I have even given one away as a gift! Thanks you ladies - see you next time.

We loved it so much, we've done 4 different classes. The trainer \ student ratio is ideal, and we felt supported, but not smothered - perfect!!

The venue is great - spacious enough, but with Gemma + Michelle's work around the workshop, it's really inspiring - as you can tell, I'm an avid fan!

Can't wait for the next session!
