My workshops are designed to let you create your own glass masterpiece!

 

2016 Workshop programme

All workshops are at my workshop/studio in Knockin Heath, near Oswestry and the Welsh borders.

 

Make-a-Monolith and Suncatcher workshop/activity days are for up to 4 adults and run from 10am to around 4pm, followed about 4 days later with a brief session to finish and collect your own fired glass artwork.

These popular workshops include:

  • All materials, safety instruction, equipment and tools
  • Use of the glass sand-casting kiln to melt, cast, and anneal your creation
  • Looking at what can be done, folowing ideas, deciding what you want to make
  • Tuition and help cutting the raw glass elements needed for your design
  • Moulding the sand bed of the kiln to create light refractions in your work
  • Use of my custom-made coffin kiln for the four-day casting of your creation
  • Help lifting, finishing, and mounting your sculpture after casting

Your monolith sculpture will be up to about a metre high, ready to be mounted in the garden!

Workshops cost £95 per person in a 4-person class.

Just ask if you'd like a session all to yourself, or to share with a friend: the cost including all the materials you need and full-length kiln firing is £350.
