Our team of excellent teachers run craft courses in the glass techniques that they are passionate about. many of our staff teach our courses in fusing, bead making (flameworking) glass engraving, traditional painting, slumping and jewellery. We have three training rooms which are used for longer courses during the week, taster days and weekends, lectures, hen parties and corporate training / team building days. Our training covers many glass skills and we are striving to develop new and exciting workshops for you to enjoy.
In 2013 we started working with Pret who provide our light lunches on our full day and weekend courses. We wanted to work with a company as passionate as we are, who we knew would provide consistent quality food and a brand that people would recognise. No soggy sandwiches here! Fresh, tasty and made on the day. Delivered to us from their Bristol premises in Cabot Circus.
We offer one to one courses for specific techniques or projects and arrange private courses if you would like to bring a group of friends or team mates. We can even help you realise a design for a window for home or office building with an expert to guide you. Just give us a call for a chat to discuss your ideas. If you want to go large - we have a kiln which is 3200mm x 1350mm inside - for painted glass and fused glass panels for production work and architectural uses. The possibilities are endless in glass!
Watch out for free lectures too, we run them a couple of times a year, when we come across an inspiring teacher or artist with a lot to say about glass art or their craft. We are also keen to hear from people who love to talk and have a real passion for glass!
Check out our courses page to see all that we offer - we look forward to seeing you!
