This one day course will be divided into two session in order to cover working with different kinds of glass.
Within each task you will have design choices to make, so there will be sufficient variation to enable you to create individual outcomes e.g., coasters, hanging ornaments, glass art.

All the necessary specialist materials and equipment will be provided, but should you require additional glass, this will incur a further charge.

Once complete, your glass will need to be kiln fired, so it will be ready for collection 7 - 10 days after the event, depending on the type of work being produced. (Each firing will take around 9 hours and a day to cool before the kiln can be opened).
You will be notified when your glass is ready to collect.
