Glass Fusing with Enamels - Full Day Workshop

21 September 2020

During my ‘Freestyle’ full day workshop I will help you to make a large wall hanging (or curved panel to be freestanding) in your own design, which we’ll fire for you overnight, ready for collection the next day. Whether you already work in glass, or are a complete novice, I will tailor your tuition accordingly.

Whats the plan for the day?
After a health & safety briefing, I will be demonstrating the techniques I use, from preparing the glass to applying the enamels, through to assembling the piece ready for the kiln. There will be opportunity for practicing the application of colours in the morning, and then a break for lunch. Upon return to the Studio you will then have the rest of the afternoon to make your wall hanging. I will provide as much personal assistance and guidance as you need.

Who else will be there?
Whilst social distancing requirements are in force we are limiting the number of places to FOUR per workshop to allow everyone to work at least 2m apart.

What can I take home with me?
You will be making a glass wall-hanging, to a maximum size of 30cm x 60cm. You can create any design that you wish, perhaps taking inspiration from our local surroundings or you can bring some ideas with you. Your piece will be fired in the kiln the same day, and will then be ready for you to collect the following afternoon (or we can send it to you via courier for an additional charge if you are not able to collect in person).

Whats the cost?
The cost of each place is £295. This must be paid in full to secure your place.

What does the cost include?
The all-inclusive cost covers your tuition, all materials that you will be using, protective mask and apron, a yummy lunch and other refreshments, the item you make to take home (and probably some smaller pieces too!), and fixings with which to hang it.

Can I bring a friend?
To allow everyone plenty of space to work only those paying for a place will be able to attend during the day. Usually your friends or family are welcome to come in at the end of the day to see the fruits of your labours before your piece is fired in the kiln – and again the following day for the grand kiln-opening – however to ensure safe distancing this isn’t possible at the moment.

Where is it?
At my fully equipped studio just outside Totnes in the picturesque South Hams area of Devon. The address is Coombe Park Craft Studios, Ashprington, Totnes, Devon TQ9 7DY.

Where can I stay?
We will be pleased to do all we can to help you make the most of your visit to Devon. Please just ask if you would like details of recommended accommodation in or around Totnes.
