Like what you see and interested in learning more about the art of fusing glass?
Come to a Glass Shack workshop and you will learn how to cut glass, what shape can (and can't) be easily made; how to build glass pieces and much more. Have an idea of what you'd like, make it, fire it in the kiln and then collect it a few days later. Please be aware that some items require more than one firing so can take up to 5 days before they are ready.
Workshops are perfect for Birthday parties, Hen Parties, family get togethers, team building, rainy holiday days...yes, sometimes it does rain in 'sunny' Cornwall!
Don't live in Cornwall but still want to try out a Glass Shack workshop? Why not come a stay for a weekend, or make a week of it, in our 'small but perfectly formed' studio apartment, right here at The Glass Shack? Take a look at our 'Accommodation' page for more information.

ONE TO ONE WORKSHOPS
If you would like to learn a bit more about the techniques and styles used in glass fusing then why not book yourself onto a one to one session? Make something a little different in one of these workshops, something a little larger or more challenging than in a regular session or just spend some time playing around with different techniques. *
Half day priced at £85; full day at £150 including all materials and tuition.
* if there is something specific that you would like to make then we can discuss your design and price a one to one workshop accordingly...the fabulous bathroom piece in the photograph was made in one of these sessions.

FAMILY OR KIDDIES WORKSHOPS
Regrettably, most workshops are unsuitable for those under 10 years of age. However, bespoke 'Family Workshops' where youngsters can experience glass fusion can be arranged or look out for a 'Kiddies' workshop which are usually run in the school holidays. Please contact Caroline for further details.

A standard 'panel' size is approx 25x20cm. If you would like to make something that is slightly out of the norm, either design or size wise, then we can discuss this prior to the workshop.
Please be aware that making these pieces may incur a glass/kiln time surcharge.
