Make something gorgeous in my fully-equipped studio in the heart of the Hampshire countryside

Learn a New Craft

With no experience necessary, why not join one of my glass fusion workshops. Come on your own or come with friends to enjoy a relaxed and fun introduction to the techniques of handling art glass. With class sizes of 6, each participant can work with their own set of tools and materials at their own pace with experienced one-to-one guidance. Courses can be booked on-line and you can buy course vouchers for that unique gift.

Develop a Skill

One day ‘Taster’ and two day ‘Beginners’ courses available, get an understanding of a wide range of techniques to suit your level of interest. Start by cutting and shaping glass, augment your work with metals and small decorative ‘frit’ granules and go on to create your own, original designs and see them magically transformed by firing in the kiln. Watch the video to learn more.

Weekend design and make – glass fusion workshop

Day One

In this workshop you will gain an understanding for the different techniques, working with Bullseye glass.

In the morning session you will learn how to cut glass, emboss shapes, make inclusions and decorate your work with frits and stringers.

In the afternoon, you will create a flat panel, using what you have learned, ready for firing in the kiln overnight.

Day Two

To start the day, I will unload the kiln so we can review the pieces we made on day one. Following this you will learn some advanced cutting techniques, after which you will design and make two new, original pieces. Later, these two items will be fired in the kiln. One of your pieces will then be ‘slumped’ over a shaped mould to form either dish or a decorative wave.

A buffet lunch will be provided on both days. Fired works can be collected from the studio at a later date, or posted to you by arrangement. No previous experience required.
