Fused Glass Taster Sessions @ Vitreus Art
Make a selection of fused glass Christmas Trees - for beginners!

"I enjoyed the course very much! Really want to come back and learn more. " - Cynthia

On this taster session you'll learn how to decorate a series of sweet little Christmas Tree fused glass decorations, in time for Christmas.

There's no glass cutting involved - you'll use glass frits, glass stringers and enamel pens to create 4 cute Christmas tree ornaments which can be hung from your tree or given as gifts!

Taster Session - Fused Glass Christmas Trees For Beginners for up to 5 people (two sessions) on Friday 6th December.

The class begins with introductions, mulled wine or tea or coffee and a discussion of the materials and processes you'll use on the workshop.

You'lll then choose the coloured glass frits and enamels you'll use to decorate your trees, and begin designing them.
We'll add a small wire loop to each tree before it goes in the kiln to be fired. Your trees will be ready to collect a few days later - firing is done overnight.

These Taster Sessions are open to adults and well-behaved children over 6 years, provided a responsible adult also books their own Session alongside the child.

There are two sessions - 17.30 to 18.45 and 19.00 to 20.30 (end times are approximate) - sessions can be booked for either but places are strictly limited to ensure enough space and attention for each attendee.

The Taster Session workshop cost of £20 includes:

  • Fusible clear glass tree shapes and all other glass materials required
  • Use of all tools and apron
  • Refreshments during the class - seasonal sessions include mulled wine and mince pies
  • Maximum class size 5 people
  • Your decorations to take home after kiln firing
  • Class runs from 17-30 to (approx) 18-45 or 19-00 to 20-30 (approx) at our Northants studio

Please Note: Although we provide aprons we ask you to wear old or scruffy clothes as glass work can get messy! Please also bring fully-enclosed shoes.
