"Since you installed the wall mounted Stained glass "Kinetic/OP Art" design on Sunday, we have been enthralled by the effect it has had on the area and the variations in tone and colour quality as the light plays on it at different times of the day." PD, Ampthill

September - Brand-new art classes with Clare Tebboth!

Clare has come up with some great new classes - suitable for beginners, and especially suitable for anyone who's a bit stuck in a rut artistically too!

All classes are strictly limited to 5 places, with benches spaced out, face visors provided, and sanitised surfaces, plus the full range of measures required by the official COVID-Secure business premises audit.

Follow the links to find out more!

September - New artists and new art from our established artists at the new Gallery!

As well as Robin Souter's fabulous seascapes (arrived just after we opened) we now have gorgeous silver jewellery lovingly made from old cutlery by Julissimo Jewellery and charming new paintings from Tina Ashton.

There's a set of three striking canvases and an impressive larger canvas (below) from Niki Thomas and new mixed media work from Lesley Passey (the largest of which sold within a couple of days of arrival).
There's also amazing new glass work from Ken Flegg and a collection of new work from Raku master Richard Ballantyne. Pop in and enjoy!

August - Workshops resuming this month!

We have the following precautions in place for all workshops at our new studio at Bell Plantation:
  • Workbenches are separated by 2 metres from each other and from the teaching bench
  • We're providing face visors (sanitized after and before each use) and facemasks if preferred
  • Benches are cleaned and sanitized before and after each workshop
  • Class sizes are max 4 people for most workshops so that we can maintain spacing for lunch as well as during the workshop itself
  • Other surfaces are sanitized at least daily, more common touch points during the day
  • Visitor washrooms are strictly for use of students and are being sanitized between uses
  • Individual tool kits for each student to avoid sharing as far as possible

June - New PMC (Precious Metal Clay) workshop added - PMC Rings

Suitable for beginners, but also great if you've done some PMC with us before as you'll learn lots of new skills. Make two rings in the day, starting with a simpler design using texture to decorate a simple silver band and progressing to make an embellished two-part ring.
A great way to make a gift or give a gift! We'll teach you all the skills you'll need, and all the materials and silver are included. Hit the link for info and dates...

June - End of Lockdown sale!

While we’ve been tidying and re-organizing we’ve realized we have some older pieces that deserve a new home.

There are pieces large and small, many reduced by up to 50%.
They range from candles and soaps to soap dishes and fused window hangings, mirrors and wall art and even include a lamp…..
 
All the pieces on offer are on this web page:
https://www.vitreus-art.co.uk/end-lockdown-sale-june2020.html
 
We’ll be creating an album on Facebook with larger photos of each. If you’d like to know any details, sizes, or other info about anything, just ask.

June - We hope to resume workshops from early July, with new distancing and hygiene measures, and smaller class sizes

Dates for workshops have been updated with new dates till November and December for our most popular classes. All vouchers are still valid and expiry dates have all been extended by at least 6 months. Join our Newsletter group for updates! Read more on this Blog Post.

May - Lots of new glass art pieces added to our gallery - online and in real life (for when we can re-open!)

Here are just two examples - lots more on our Glass Art Page.
We've been using our time during lockdown to keep the kilns busy....
Falling Water - new fused glass art made by Vitreus Art Coral - fused glass art on show at Vitreus Art

April - Look out for new glass art, workshops and taster sessions

While we've been closed Jenny and I have been working on several new pieces of our own art, a huge refresh of the gallery including new art, new layout and lots of clambering up and down ladders, and we're now working on new workshops.
Look out for Facebook posts and email newsletters with updates. In the meantime, look after your health! M&J
