In this special Christmas themed workshop you’ll be shown how to create your own Fused Glass Christmas Decorations. Great as gifts or to enhance your own Christmas decor. Your hanging decorations (for example Christmas Trees, ‘Baubles’, Holly Leaves, and Wreaths) will look glorious captured in the colourful lustre of fused glass. Please note the baubles are flat circles not spheres. You’ll be provided with the glass ‘blanks’, ready cut in the relevant shape, plus a selection of seasonal coloured glass to create your own design. You’ll be amazed at the variety of the finished designs a group can create starting with the same blank pieces of glass! Sarah will take your finished work away, fire it in her own kiln, and return it for collection from The Blue Room after approx. 2 weeks. The workshop lasts 2 hours although you may finish earlier if you work quickly.
You will be able to make 2 decorations from the items offered. If time allows, and materials are available, you can make one more item for an additional charge of £10 payable on the day.
Please note that these workshops are NOT suitable for anyone under 14, and young people under the age of 18 MUST be accompanied by an adult who will work with them throughout the duration of this workshop.
