Tuition

Have fun while learning a new skill

We offer a wide range of classes.  These are all project-based, so instead of committing to a series of sessions, you choose your project and work towards a finished piece.  Many of the classes can be completed in one session.  We provide all materials, PPE, plus guidance.  
You can choose from a range of fused glass classes, lampwork bead sessions, hand-built ceramics, pottery painting, copper foiling or ceramic artistry.  We also have a number of guest artists once a month who offer classes such as lino printing, enamelling, jewellery making, pryography and photography.

 

Fusing Glass

Relax and Create

There are a variety of fused glass classes to choose from.  You can create a framed glass art picture, a Tea Light Holder, a Seahorse, or a decorated heart.  Other classes can be arranged, such as a fused wave or a glass bowl.  If you are not sure which piece you would like to make, drop us a line or give us a call before booking your date.  A £10/per person deposit will be required to hold your place.  Groups of up to eight can be booked online.
