Kids Glass Making Class: Creepy Crawly Critters

Let your kids create a creepy crawly critter glass creation in this school holiday class!



2 hours Class size 4 to 24     label $30

Kids will make a selection of articulated (body parts with connecting joints) creepy crawly critters in this fun glass class these Melbourne school holidays! Spiders, insects, robots, and all kinds of other animals and objects can be made in this manner. Their creativity will be ignited!

During the beginner-friendly class, kids will make up to three creepy crawly bugs and animals from a base glass and wire, decorations can be added using paints, powders, glass pieces and noodles. A range of body shapes will be provided to allow for all skill levels and critter shapes, including bugs, cats, dogs, dinosaurs and more.

Pieces will be fired after completion of the class and collection will be arranged for a later date.

All tools and materials are included in this class which is suitable for ages seven and above as it will involve working with pieces of glass.

COVID 19: In response to the current pandemic we have implemented several changes to the way we format and run all of our workshops and the space in general.

  • We have reduced the number of students in all of our workshops so each participant has ample space for social distancing
  • Everyone over the age of 12 is required to wear a mask during workshops and it is recommended for those under 12 wear one as well
  • We are reducing the sharing of supplies and supplying each participant with their own set of tools that are sanitised prior to and after each class of tool use.
  • We have implemented a strict cleaning routine of all work surfaces as well as common areas throughout each day as well as at the end of each day
  • We are asking that any participant with any symptoms or who are at risk of having been directly exposed refrain from attending our workshops
  • We are asking that all participants maintain high levels of hygiene including handwashing and cough etiquette
  • In the instance that you become ill after making a booking, a full refund or transfer will be issued

Please note:
Sessions at The Old Auction House require a minimum of four participants to run. In the event that we do not have sufficient students, we will cancel the class and contact you a minimum of 24 hours prior to the session to organise a full refund or transfer to another date.

My 7 year old learnt about processes for glass making. She loved it and was very proud of the outcome

I booked this class for my 8 year old son, and I wasn't sure what to expect. Reine, the teacher, was great in explaining the different texture and finishes to the class, and was super helpful during the class. My son loved it - He created 4 creatures during the class, and I can't wait to collect them after they have been in the kiln, and think we will love these in our home.
