Come along and learn to make lovely jewellery using glass!
Be warned this is a very addictive technique - with fantastic colours, low costs and great results.
You will not be disappointed and this course is suitable for complete beginners.

- Creating bubbles in glass
- The health and safety aspects of working with glass

And much more.
Following an introduction to working with glass, our expert tutor for this class will guide you through a series of projects designed to cover a full range of techniques and skills. You will have the chance to experiment and try our different colours, shapes and sizes etc.. and your pieces will be fired in a kiln ready for you to take home at the end of the day. There is lots of flexibility in terms of what you make and you will leave at the end of the day with 5-6 pieces of finished glass pieces which could be made into pendants, earrings, broaches, rings or cuff links - almost anything you can think of.
We will also provide you with plenty of information on how to carry on making glass jeweller after the class, either as a hobby or for a creative business idea. This will include information on where you can buy supplies, access to kilns and much more.
Glass is a great material to work with; it is colourful and affordable and can be used in combination with other materials such as metal clay to make beautiful combined pieces.
