All students are asked not to attend class if feeling unwell  

The studio is kept ventilated with opened windows so please come to class wearing layers during winter months. Although generally the kiln running overnight leaves the studio feeling warm.

Information about Longer length Glass Classes:

Beginner and Intermediate:

A course of 11 sessions, each lasting 3 hours. Students will learn how to score and cut glass, about compatible glass, incorporating frits and stringers and illustrating their work with glassline paint or enamels,  to ultimately making pieces that can then be slumped into a bowl. This course is designed to introduce beginners to the various skills needed for warm glass working. It is also possible to make coasters, jewellery or pieces suitable for framing. I teach through a mixture of demonstration and students practical application. Reference books can be suggested
