Glass Workshops

Glass Workshops

We have a glass studio attached to our house in Lincoln where we hold fused glass workshops and full day glass courses for you to create fused glass objects.    These can be to keep for yourself or to make a gift that little bit more personal.

  • The day starts at 10.00 hrs and finishes around 15:00hrs
  • The course is limited to 2 people at a time although we can accommodate 3 friends wishing to attend together.
  • Lunch and all materials provided

First of all, we will cover workshop safety, types of glass and its properties, kiln management, glass cutting and machine operation.    You are then given the opportunity to try out all the machines and cutting techniques. To enable you to practise all these techniques, you will create a glass owl in colours of your choice.
