Kids Glass Making Class: Fused Glass Platters

Learn how to make fused glass homewares these school holidays for kids



2 hours Class size 4 to 10     label $30

Want to keep the kids entertained these Melbourne school holidays? Learn how to make fused glass homewares in a fun and interactive class!

Kids can join us in our glass studio to create a set of four coasters, a sushi dish, or long platter using our glass supplies. All kids will be given a variety of glass materials including powders, paints, pieces and noodles as they are encouraged to first design and then create their very own custom homewares.

Pieces will be fired and finished after completion of the class and collection will be ready for collection 10 days after class.

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.

We made glass platters which were a great new learning opportunity. The teacher was wonderful and we would definitely do it again

Tamsin Whaley Apr 2021


The venue for the glass class was a bright, spacious and attractive workshop. The instructors, Rain and Ettore, were attentive, clear in their instructions, and gently helpful. They made suggestions, and kept an eagle eye out to make sure that tool use and glass handling was safe, but they didn't 'hover', and the kids could just get on with things in their own time.
The class was good value for money and I wish I'd bought myself a ticket to make something too!
By the way, the artist-made items in the showroom of The Old Auction House were universally delightful, and we came away with a few lovely things from there.
We look forward to collecting the kids' creations in a week or two when they have been fired.
