Fused Glass Workshop – Seascape Coasters

Sat 13 May | 10.00am – 2.00pm | £45.00

Unleash your creativity and try something new at this gentle introduction to glass fusing specifically designed for complete beginners. You will make four glass coasters | tile sized projects 10cm square, with a seascape design using copper oxide. A number of designs will be readily available – starfish, shrimp, coral, seahorse, clam, dolphin, turtle, fish, etc. However, if you wish, you can make up your own simple design at the workshop. Tutor Keith Sheppard will teach you various design techniques; demonstrate the tools required for glass cutting, how to work safely and handle glass with confidence.

Your completed fused glass coasters will be taken back to Keith’s studio for firing and returned to the venue one to two weeks later for collection.

All tools and materials will be provided. You may wish to bring your own safety glasses. Please wear suitable clothing and flat shoes.

PLEASE NOTE: Completed glass decorations will not be returned by post. Collection only from the venue.

Modern Mini-Masters – Tammy Kanat ‘Circles of Life’

Sat 18 Feb | 10.00am – 12.00pm | £12.00

This Modern Mini Masters will introduce you to the exciting Australian weaver and fibre artist Tammy Kanat. Taking inspiration from Kanat’s ‘Circles of Life’ pieces, you will create your own circular tapestry. Choosing colours to create a balanced and exciting piece, you will work with a variety of different threads, strings and woven fibres. These will be threaded, stitched or weaved onto a sieve creating a circular pattern. Please note that this is not an embroidery workshop but an exploration of textile art where the children will be ‘drawing with thread’. We will be using bigger sized and child friendly blunt needles.
