Fused Glass – hearts, coasters, sun catchers

September 22 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

£35

Join Sarah for these ever popular fused glass workshops where you can make your own unique and beautiful items for yourself or as gifts. Suitable for complete beginners as well as those who’ve caught the fused glass bug! Each workshop lasts about 2 hours depending on how quickly you create your masterpiece.

We need you to select in advance what you’d like to make from the options available. This information is collected at the time of booking. To help you make these choices there are some photos on this page of each project. Please ensure you choose the correct projects as it’s not possible to make changes on the day due to the advance preparation Sarah needs to do.

The photos show examples of each item (sizes may differ, these are examples only). If you would like any more detailed information about these items please contact us, or drop in to take a look at some examples. You’ll be able to make 2 items from the choices available.

Fused Glass Coasters before firing – note the colours of the fish and starfish shapes

Fused Glass Coasters after firing – look at the colour change of the fish and starfish. Copper foil turns deep red (and sometimes blue!) once fired.

Fused Glass Sun Catchers before firing

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.

Sarah’s workshops are very popular, with customers returning time and again to enjoy creating something beautiful and unique. They fill up very quickly so we strongly recommend early booking.

All materials provided.

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.
