Fused Glass Workshop for Beginners

Create your own homewares with kiln formed glass in the Macedon Ranges



2 hours Class size 1 to 10

label $120 - $130 (or 4 payments of $30 - $33 Afterpay)
($130 per guest when you book for 1 guest, $120 for 2+ guests)



Discover a new medium while working with warm glass to create a large glass platter and set of coasters to take home.

You will be guided in the basics of glass working, including breaking and shaping and designing with glass.

Everyone will be provided with appropriate sized bases of glass for their projects to ensure a solid finished piece after firing. Then working with glass pieces, frits, powders, stringers, and beads you will create and glue your designs ready for firing.

A range of ceramic moulds for shaping platters will also be discussed and you can choose to shape your artwork into a functional dish or leave flat as a piece of art. Each piece will then be put through our kiln 1-3 times depending on the desired finish and shape of your piece.

As the kilns take time to heat and cool, the glass projects will need to be collected after the class, dependent on the amount of work in the firing queue platters can take up to 2 weeks to be completed.

Anyone who wishes to have their pieces returned via post can arrange this individually with the studio at the end of the workshop.

Kate Car May 2021


Highly recommend.
This class was run by Rhaine who was so helpful and friendly. Great value for money and so much fun I have done it twice already. Terrific venue, easy to find and park then spent the afternoon exploring Kyneton.
Excited to collect our finished plates and coasters in a couple of weeks.

Great value and easy instructions that let you be creative rather than directing what you do. I had a lot of fun. I went by myself but would also make a fun group activity. Loved it!

Colleen Nolan May 2021


A beautiful workshop space and plenty of opportunities to create something special. Great activity to do with a group of friends.

This is the second glass fusion workshop I have done and I enjoyed it more the second time. It is amazing what you can create in just two hours. I would highly recommend this workshop.

The class was great fun. We were able to trim glass to fit our designs and got plenty of good advice - can't wait to see the finished product.
