label $150 - $190 (or 4 payments of $37.50 - $47.50 Afterpay)
($150 for Regular Size Vase (30cm x 30cm), $190 for Large Platter/Bowl up to 40cm x 40cm)

Tap into your creative side and learn the art of glass fusing in Melbourne!

This is an intensive and hands-on class where you will learn glass fusing skills and knowledge targeted at enabling you to make a beautiful glass vase - or platter if you prefer.

During this class, you will learn the basics of glass fusing plus techniques like how to cut glass using mosaic cutters, freehand scorers and a glass cutting system. You will then put these techniques into practice and create your own unique fused glass vase or platter.

Making a vase or a platter uses the same technique for both processes - so you can decide on the day what you want to make. We recommend a regular size vase, but if you want to go big, you can make a bigger platter or bowl.

This class is targeted at people with no or limited glass fusing experience, so beginners are very welcome. You will learn to make a stunning glass vase - or platter! Perfect for a centrepiece for your own home, a special gift or even a wedding gift.

You can make a regular size vase or a larger platter or bowl, depending on your budget and preference.

A fun and informative class. Merryl thoroughly explained all processes and gave us lots of choice for variations. There was a generous array of coloured glass to choose from, which makes me want to go back to explore glass fusing and slumping further.

The teacher was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Great range of materials, good quality tools. A lovely vibe in the work space. I attended with my adult children and their partners and were still raving about it.

Lara Burton Apr 2022


Merryl was lovely
Class was informative
Range of glass colours was good but I was wanting to use pink/ fuchsia colours which they didn’t have
I had to change my design ideas
Examples of different fusing outcomes was great
My comments would be that I thought the window displays were a bit dusty. An example of work was taken from the window for reference and it was dusty. Would have been more appealing if it was shiny and clean.
We were asked to bring supplies eg ruler, pens, pencil etc in the booking confirmation. When I got to the class I found that they were supplied.
Overall a very pleasant experience.
Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

Michelle Rosenberg Apr 2022


I thoroughly enjoyed my workshop with Merryl. She is a very approachable and helpful teacher, who even assisted me with my project when I thought I was progressing too slowly! I thought the workshop had the right mix of learning techniques and skills, as well as allowing us to be creative and incorporate our own ideas. The studio is well-lit and inviting, with all tools ready to go. I would definitely book again with Merryl to further my skills.

Leanne Macnab Apr 2022


Fabulous experience - loved the class will definitely be booking more workshops - such a fun, welcoming environment - can’t wait to get my vase

Ulrike White Apr 2022


A great glass fusing class. Merryl explained everything in detail as well as showing us examples before we started working on our pieces. The class included all equipment we needed and all the glass we wanted to use. Highly recommend.

Leanne Gray Apr 2022


This was a great class. The teachers were great. Lots of help and support. Lots of ideas provided but own ideas also welcome. Variety of choices to decide what the final product would look like. Ie variety of platter shapes, vases. Will definitely do this glass again.

Kathleen Murphy Apr 2022


Terrific class. Excellent venue, easy to find and park. Merryl is lovely and very experienced. A lot was covered and there was enormous choice in what we could attempt. Lots of support given, learnt some really useful new skills and looking forward to seeing the finished piece once it gets fired.

Heidi Willif Mar 2022


Merry was great with her explanations and very helpful. Venue location good with nearby free parking. Loved doing the activity and excited to see the finished product.
However I did find it somewhat difficult to access or look at the glass pieces for colour selection as they were located in the centre of the table. When people were seated and working I didn’t want to get in their way. But the person beside me kept reaching across my work when she was accessing some of her pieces.

Monique Howard Mar 2022


Merryl was lovely, inspiring and a wonderful teacher. Her studio was so beautiful - I want to move in, it's my dream studio! She had wonderful supplies and great ideas to stimulate our design process. Can't wait to see what my final product looks like (Photo attached is the 2D layout of my vase, when it's fired it will drape into a vase shape). I'll be back to learn and make other things! , can't wait

Sharon Walsh Mar 2022


This was our second class with Merryl and we had a ball! We first did the bowl a few months back and then just had to come back to do the vase. Highly recommend the experience!

Fused Glass Vase Workshop review by Sharon Walsh

Shaeron Murray Mar 2022


Great class! The teacher and assistant both supported us all in the construction and design of our vases. The venue was well light, spacious and well laid out. Hot drinks and snacks were offered throughout. I was apprehensive and unsure what to do, or where to start, but the teacher was there to talk through our ideas and wanted outcomes. Looking forward to going back ( already thinking about my next design!)

Geoffrey Beckett Feb 2022


Merryl’s Glass Fusion class on Saturday was a great experience. Her clear, concise instructions were delivered in a most pleasant manner. Her demonstrations of technique and use of equipment was excellent and very inclusive of the whole group (ten students). Her encouragement was appreciated. All equipment was supplied and the many glass examples were inspiring.

Lorraine Williams Feb 2022

Kaz Dickens Feb 2022


Enrol at Merryl's Mosaics and Glass Studio to take a class. Very inspiring, lots of options to make your art and be "creative". Wonderful teacher who is so dedicated and has a natural gift in relating to people.

Miriam Reynoldson Jan 2022


So many gorgeous designs and colours and textures to explore. Merryl was very clear about the process and possibilities, so we were able to come up with some interesting ideas and then adjust them into something beautiful but doable in 3 hours!

Natalie Wynd Jan 2022


Fantastic hands on course with options aplenty. Merryl was informative and provided us with all of the information before we started.

The materials were readily available and suggestions were offered which helped with putting together the final product.

I'm really looking forward to getting the finished product back in a couple of weeks

Carl Nansett Nov 2021


Super well organised & great facilities. So many options to choose from. Will most certainly be going back again
