"A fantastic day, would highly recommend." - Maureen

Fused GlassChristmas Wreath- make your own glass wreath approx 220mm wide on this half--day workshop suitable for beginners.

On this half-day mini workshop you'll make your own Christmas Wreath and learn a little about glass fusing along the way. You'll even learn some basic glass cutting skills!

You'll be using float glass, coloured frit and glass you'll crush with a hammer toadd texture and a 'frozen icicle' effect for your wreath.
You'll start by cutting a number of glass shapes out of glass under our expert guidance.
You'll then lay out the first layer, and build up the overlaping second layer to ensure a strong end result.
Then it's time to add coloured glass frit and crushed clear glass if desired to create your own individual wreath art. After firing you'll be able to collect your wreath. You're now ready to enjoy your art at home!

This class will give you a brief introduction to glass cutting, basic tack fusing, including the difference between the types of glass you can fuse with, and some of the essentials of kiln operation and is suitable for all levels, especially beginners.

The course cost of £65 inc VAT includes:

  • All the float glass, frit and other materials needed to make your wreath
  • Use of all tools, apron, goggles and other protective gear
  • Refreshments during the class plus Christmas treats!
  • Maximum class size 5 people
