Dates by arrangement
A design focused workshop where you will make a tryptich (3 piece) wall art piece over 2 days. On day 1 you will experiment with techniques, use pattern based art as inspiration, design your wall panel and begin to make it. Some elements of your design may be fired overnight ready for day 2 when you will continue to make your design. You will be able to work with frit, powders, mica, sheet glass & fibre papers to create your piece.
Dates by arrangement only
There may be an opportunity for you to work on a large scale personal project over these dates. Individual pricing would apply for this and would be discussed in advance.
As a secondary school art teacher (2001-15) I am happy to teach anyone of secondary age. My youngest glass attendee was 8 and has been with her mum for a day out with a difference making glass bunting. Although I have an enhanced DBR check I request that a parent remains with any young person coming on a workshop.
