Do you fancy having a go at the amazing medium of glass fusing?
All workshops are run by myself in my small but well-equipped studio based in Altrincham, south of Manchester.
With small group sizes of 3 or 4, each participant is guaranteed to receive all the attention and guidance they need.
‘Making’ has been proved to have a positive effect on well-being and mental health… there is something very special about losing yourself in the creative process and being the proud owner of your own work.

Glass Fusing Taster Day
Half a day Christmas Decorations
Introduction to Glass Fusing
ou will learn about design, glass cutting, fused glass compatibility, firing cycles and various decorative techniques using sheet glass, frits, stringers and confetti.
- Altrincham, Cheshire In the first half of the day, you will be designing and making one or two small hangings or coasters. In the afternoon, you will be able to choose your own ceramic mould to make a functional piece such as a dish or a candle screen which can be admired and enjoyed in your own living space or given as a special gift.
- The fusing and slumping in the kiln will take place after the workshop and the results can be collected or posted at Royal Mail rates.
With over 20 years' teaching experience, classes are taught in an informal environment in my own garden studio in Altrincham, Cheshire, with small groups of 4 so that every participant can receive personalised tuition and encouragement.
