I run different lengths of classes in glass fusing and enamelling and this whole day course includes these 2 and beginner stained glass too! In this whole day course (approx 10am-3.30pm) we will explore 3 different glass making techniques. Depending on the complexity of your pieces, you can usually make around 2-3 fused glass items of your choice including jewellery, coasters, hanging panels, tree decorations; 1 small stained glass panel (including copper foiling and soldering) and 3 pieces of enamelled copper jewellery (sifted powdered glass onto copper shapes and fired yourself in the kiln). There are different price options for 1 person, 2 people or 3 people booking and I am flexible with dates available - please ask.
The class is suitable for people who want to learn the basic techniques of new crafts which might lead to a new hobby. Or you can just come to try something new and enjoy the creative experience. It is a great gift idea for someone who enjoys trying new things! Glass comes in many forms and you don't need any artistic ability! I provide plenty of ideas for inspiration.
(Age 14+ (U16 accompanied by paying adult)) Max 3 people in a class for safety reasons - a careful steady hand required!
• A whole day course will include the glass materials and metal inclusions, jewellery fixings and the firing of your pieces which will be ready to collect in 1-2 weeks. (Postage can be arranged at cost if preferred.)
• The studio is equipped with a large range of coloured glass in different sizes and formats, various glitters and metal inclusions, kiln fibre, appropriate tools and safety equipment and electric kilns.
A craft lesson makes a great unusual gift for a fun creative activity to do together. You can get in contact to arrange a date that would suit. I am very flexible on dates. I also run shorter classes from 1.5 hours long in glass fusing and enamelling. I am flexible and open to bespoke timing to suit. I also combine courses with my husband who is a potter and runs courses too.
What's included in the price?
I offer you tea or coffee throughout the day and a buffet ploughman's style lunch including home-grown produce when available. All materials and equipment are provided as well as the firing of all your pieces and any jewellery bails fixed for you after the class. You can take away your own finished pieces of stained glass and enamelling but I will fire the fused glass for you. (These can be posted within UK).
About Sarah Greening Glass
Sarah Greening Glass
After 25 years in the NHS, I am now realising a new career as a glass fuser and small business owner and all that entails. It has been a steep learning curve (still learning every day...) and I have made many new friends through art events or business networking. I could only have done all of this with the support of my husband, Chris, who is a potter and we are enjoying running our businesses side by side! We live in Worcester and can often be found at art and craft shows and galleries, taking opportunities to meet other designer-makers in the area. Most weekends we either have classes or have stalls at an art & craft market.Read more about Sarah Greening Glass
