Glass Fusing - Christmas Decorations
One day workshops with Jenny Timms

"Absolutely loved the course, really pleased with all the Christmas items we were able to make... " - Rachael

Basic Glass Fusing - creating your own hand-made glass Christmas Tree decorations, suitable for beginners and those who want to do some more!

On this workshop you'll make several jolly decorations in time for Christmas, and learn about the basics of glass fusing, as well as having fun!

This glass fusing workshop starts of with a base of piece of clear fusible glass then adding coloured crushed glass (called 'frit') and decorating with enamels to create fused glass pieces.

You'll get to make around 14 decorations during the day - several stars, icicles, and Christmas trees all suitable for giving as gifts or of hanging on your own Christmas tree, plus a snowperson, or Father Christmas Head, or similar (all about 10cm high).

There's no glass cutting required on this class and it really is suitable for total beginners.

We start by examining the process and materials you'll be using; after a demonstration of the critical first stage, you'll then start to assemble your trees and icicles along with your other pieces. There's a huge range of frits and enamels for you to choose from so your finished Christmas decorations will all be unique.

Your decorations will be fired in our kilns over the next couple of days and will be ready to collect afterwards.

The course cost of £149 inc VAT includes:

  • Pre-cut clear fusible glass, frit, enamel pens and stringers to make your decorations
  • Use of all tools and apron
  • Light lunch & refreshments during the day
  • Maximum class size 5 people for individual attention
  • Kiln firing over 2-3 days
  • All your work to keep, after firing
  • Eligibility for our Project Days Programme
  • Class runs from 10-30am to 4-30pm (approx) at our Northants studio near Towcester
