We are delighted to offer another glass workshop with Katherine from Number8glass. This time you will be able to choose to create either a ripple stick , light catcher or small glass dish.
The workshop will run for 2 hours and during this time Katherine will introduce you to the different kinds of glass that you can use to create your design, she will then be on hand throughout to guide you. Don’t worry if you don’t think of yourself as particularly creative it is all about having fun and having a go, some people choose abstract designs, others come along with ideas of what they would like to create whilst some people have no idea what they would like to design when they arrive. But being surrounded by so many beautiful glass colours and in a gift shop full to the brim of makers work there is more than enough to inspire and get the creative juices flowing.
You don’t need to bring anything along, it is a pretty relaxed environment and we provide lots of tea and cake :).
At the end of the session Katherine will take all your pieces home to fire and then I will get in touch with you to arrange a time to collect your piece from the shop ( usually a week later ).
So that we can make sure that we have everything ready on the day we ask that you choose the piece you would like to make when you book. You can choose to make either a glass ripple stick , light catcher or a small trinket dish.
Ripplestick dimensions are 30cm drop x 4cm wide they have a beautiful ripply texture created by using different thicknesses of glass that are fused together. They are designed to be hung in your garden as they will catch the light and blend into the natural tones of your garden.
Light catcher – dimensions are approx 6 x 15 cm – they look so lovely hanging in your window as the sun shines through.
Glass dish – measures approx 11 cm square and would make a lovely trinket dish
To help you make your mind up I have added a few examples below of each one before and after firing.
