GIFT VOUCHERS can be bought as gifts towards the cost of our workshops – just send us an email.

All our workshops:

  • Run from 10.00 – 16.00
  • Have no more than 8 students
  • Have 2 tutors
  • Include all materials and firing of work
  • Cater for beginners and improvers
  • Include lunch and refreshments through the day
  • Cost £90 (Full Day)

Typically a beginner would learn to score and break glass safely, cut their own glass to make 4 or 5 tiles or small hangings using taught techniques, then design and make 1 or 2 pieces of their own choosing from the following: wall or garden panels, free-standing panels, vessels, mirror frame, jewellery.

Returning students would be given a directed piece, followed by help and guidance to design and make their own pieces.

Group Workshops
If you have a group of 6 or more friends or colleagues who would like a private full day workshop please email or call me for details.  For numbers fewer than 6 please contact me for a price.

Please see below some images from our workshops and some of the beautiful things our students have made.
