Tuition

There are a number of different courses available to try in a modern, air conditioned, fully equipped studio.

Fused Glass

I offer one to one and group tuition for fused glass.  You can choose from a number of different types of project, which incorporate elements of your own design ideas.  You come to the studio as many times as it takes to complete your creation

During the session, you will learn how to transfer your design from drawing board into a practical design; learn how to cut glass, use various tools and a grinder, learn to assemble your design with a variety of glass products and glass accessories and finally, learn about glass process temperatures in kiln-formed glass.

 

 

It can be as simple or as complex as you like. The cost will depend on the project you want to complete.  For example, a coaster session will cost £25. For a bowl it will be from £95 or a Tea Light Wave from £50. This includes all materials, use of tools and tuition, plus firings. Hot & cold drinks and snacks are available on site. 

 Most projects may require more than one visit to the studio.

 

Group bookings are now available for up to four people.  Come and have a get together with friends/family to make a tea light wave.  Bring your own refreshments -  Now taking bookings for birthday's, Christmas, Hen Do's or just making memories!  A group of four is £185 and a group of five is £230, normally £50/person. Includes all materials and firings.  Safety equipment provided.

 

Please message if you are interested to discuss projects and dates and prices.  

 

To secure a booking full payment or a non-refundable 20% deposit is required, the balance to be paid on the day.

You can also purchase a gift voucher for a glass making experience.  Pay via card over the phone and I will send you a printable PDF.

Bead-Making

Lampwork is an ancient art form for manipulating molten glass in the flame.  My studio is equipped with two lampwork work stations.  I have all of the latest equipment required for safe, fun bead-making!

I offer a one to one taster session, consisting of three hours of learning about equipment, glass,                    safety, and of course making beads.  If you are local, you will be invited back to finish the cold                        working  process.  If not, you will be sent the beads you make during your session after they have                  been kiln annealed, plus any I make for demonstration purposes.  The taster is bookable in advance              and because the tuition is on a one to one  or one to two basis, I can be very flexible on dates and                times.  The taster session is £66 per person and includes all materials and personal protective                        equipment. You can purchase a voucher for this course in my Online Shop

        My Lampwork taster tuition vouchers are popular and are a unique  gift. 

Advanced tuition is available and tailored to your needs.  Email or call to discuss requirements.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stained Glass

We will be running a stained glass day course once a month.  You can choose from a range of templates and will learn about design elements, glass cutting, grinding, copper foiling and soldering.  You will be able to take your creation home with you on the day.  The day costs £120 per person.

Glass Experience Day
The Experience Day begins at 10.30am with fused glass.  You will design and create a tea light holder.  Then you will be shown how to use the specialised blowtorch and create your own glass beads.  Finally, you will create a two-part stained glass heart, learning copper foiling and soldering.  

Gift vouchers are available for all sessions in my shop.
