A great way to get started, this is our standard fused glass workshop that will introduce you to the fabulous possibilities of making art with glass. Similar to the school holiday events but this time just for the adults, providing you with some much needed quality time over an extended session, allowing you to make your own tile at a more leisurely pace.  You can choose either a 10cm x 10cm square or a 12cm x 8cm rectangle to create your design.

Once you have made your masterpiece you will leave it with us to fire in our kiln; fusing all the components of glass that you have used into one final piece. We will then turn your tile into a slumped trinket dish after a second firing or you can have your tile framed to make a gorgeous picture for your home or to give away as a wonderful gift. You can decide which option to choose after completing the session.

Suitable for beginners and those who just like to keep coming back for more. This adult’s workshop will run for approximately 2hrs with refreshments included so you can switch off, relax, and enjoy getting creative.

You will have access to a rich variety of materials including…

  • Glass pieces
  • Stringers
  • Frit
  • Glass powders
  • Shards
  • Enamel pens

At the time of booking, you will receive a confirmation email of your purchase and further details, tips and tricks to help you to get started on creating your own design, making your finished glass tile unique to you.

You do not need to be a budding artist in order to create your own work, so there is no need to worry. You will be supported before and throughout the duration of the class. We also have a selection of varied reference material in the studio available to you should you be struggling for ideas. For a more detailed explanation of materials and terms, please take a look at our glass glossary.

It will be necessary to leave your finished piece with us to fuse in our kiln. You will be notified within two weeks when your item is ready to collect from the studio. Alternatively, this can be posted on to you at standard postage rates. Choose to add-on this delivery cost when you order your workshop ticket.
