Please get in touch if you're interested in this workshop.
This workshop is at an introductory/intermediate level. It will be accessible for people with no experience of glass-fusing, but can still provide a good challenge for those who have tried glass-fusing before.
You will choose between a 10cmx10cm square (drinks mat/coaster), heart shape or 12cm diameter hanging circle as your base for this project. Depending on your skill level and how intricate a design you prefer, you will be able to make one or maybe two of these.
After an intro (or refresher) about the processes of cutting and shaping glass, you will decorate your base using small pieces of sheet glass, frit (crushed glass) and stringers (long strands of glass). Making your project(s) will probably take between 1½ and 2 hours, depending on how ambitious and dexterous you are.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided (vegan biscuits and oat milk will be available). After the workshop, your flat pieces of glass will be carefully transported to my studio for their firing, which will fuse the decoration onto the clear base. If you’ve made a drinks mat/coaster then I will attach small feet to the underside. Within about a week, your art will be ready for collection (or I can post your art to you for a small extra fee).
The typical group size is 4-5. The maximum group size is 8 and the course will only run if there are at least 3 bookings. It’s fine to book a place on this workshop for well-behaved children aged 9+ as long as they are accompanied by a paying adult.
This workshop will be held at Broome Village Hall, DY9 0HA. This offers a light and airy space, with plenty of room to spread out if needed. There is wheelchair access and the adjacent car park has plenty of space for the size of group. Broome is a beautiful little village near to the Clent Hills, with lots of countryside walks and pubs if you are planning to include the workshop as part of a full day out.
In addition to my scheduled workshops, I am always happy to run workshops for a group of friends. This could be for as few as three people and could be at Broome Village Hall or in your own home. Please get in touch.
