Regular kiln fused glass classes - Dukeries Community Workshop, Ollerton



Learn how to make kiln fused glass projects at our regular sessions every Thursday morning from 10.00am to 12.30pm and Friday afternoon from 1pm to 3 pm. Please be aware we need 7 days notice as we are very busy at the moment. Our workshops are weekly and drop in type for our regular users. Please book and we will advise if we have space available. Please also bear in mind that most glass projects take several sessions to complete including firing in our kilns. Our workshops are not really suitable for one-off sessions. Please bear this in mind if you are considering traveling long distances. The Dukeries Community Centre is a charitable organisation, established in 1988, offering a range of craft workshops. We also offer regular drop-in workshop sessions in which you can complete your own project with tools, machinery and guidance on hand. Close to Mansfield, Retford, Worksop and Newark, we also welcome students from Lincoln, Nottingham and Sheffield. The community centre is on the grounds of the Dukeries Academy, which also hosts a swimming pool and gym, a public library, adult education centre, fire training centre, a centre for people with disabilities and a riding centre... so there is plenty to see and visit! We also are fortunate to have several excellent eating places surrounding us. The workshops (and toilets) are fully accessible for people with disabilities. If you have any queries in advance of booking your place please select the 'message the tutor' button.
