This is a workshop for absolute beginners “Life’s Colours” Level One.

Learn a brand new skill and create your own glass plate inspired by my “Life’s Colours” design. You’ll create your own 25x25cm art glass platter in the colours of your choosing. A wonderful & personal gift, or simply a treasure to enjoy yourself.

During the workshop you will learn:

the basic and correct skills required to use glass as an artistic medium
the fundamentals of glass cutting
about art glass how it performs in the kiln and introduced to the endless potential of glass fusing and slumping.

What you get:

Everything you need to make your 25cms x 25cms plate
all materials used including the choice from over 14 different colours
use of studio tools
kiln firing of your plate after you leave (usually 3 firings in total)
cookies, tea, coffee, mineral water or hot chocolate
sometimes bubbly if you let me know in advance that its a celebration (over 18s of course)
to forget about the real world for a couple of hours
to listen to great music

You’ll be surprised at how clever you are at making something wonderful! About 14 days after the workshop (often sooner) your plate will be ready for you to collect. Progress pictures will be taken and emailed to you so you know what’s happening step by step.

No previous experience required. Please wear clothes that includes some kind of sleeve (not a tank top). Please wear closed toe shoes. (no thongs, no sandals that aren’t closed toe shoes). You need to be able to stand securely on both feet.

This is a workshop for 3 people – so you are well looked after with loads of individual attention. Its an enjoyable experience in a creative, fun, safe, friendly and stimulating environment. We even have great music playing during the workshop.

See you soon.

I’m like a kid in a lolly shop. I’m endlessly impressed and inspired – by the work of others, by colours and textures, by everything around me, man-made and natural! This abundance of inspiration leads me to lots of different design techniques and styles, all of which I find stimulating, challenging and fulfilling.

Anyway, I love sharing it – that’s why I run workshops – it makes me happy and its my hope that some of this joy spills over to you as well.

You’ll can create graphic Mondrian style bowls and platters and feminist-invoking “Break The Glass Ceiling” pendants, earrings and brooches.

You can build wonderful glass Hearts which we frame and you can hang in your home or give away to a loved one.

The relationship between the glass elements in each piece means no two pieces are exactly alike, much as no story is ever retold in exactly the same way, so it is with every glass work that you create in a workshop.

You can truly say, no-one else, anywhere, has one quite like it. You can also say "I made this!"
