Try one of our workshops
just bring your imagination and see where it takes you!
Various workshop options are available and are suitable for individuals or groups.
Come to a Glass Shack workshop and you will learn how to cut glass, what shapes 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 either collect it or have it shipped to your home (charge will apply for P&P). Please be aware that some items require more than one firing so can take up to 5 days before they are ready.
Custom Workshops 1/2 day or full day sessions
Suitable for up to 8 attendees, you will be able to make a small glass piece*. Cost is £50 per person inclusive of tuition, refreshments and all materials. 2-3 hours.
Suitable for up 6 persons, you will be able to make 2 small glass pieces* Cost is £95 per person including tuition, refreshments, light lunch and all materials. 5-6 hours.
Regrettably, these workshops are generally not suitable for under 12 year's old. However, I can arrange bespoke 'Family Workshops' where youngsters can experience glass fusion without having to break glass. Please contact Caroline for further details.
Workshops are perfect for Birthday parties, Hen parties, family get togethers, team building, rainy holiday days......yes, sometimes it does rain in 'sunny' Cornwall!
* typical piece(s) would be : 15 x 15cm square dish OR 10 x 22cm 'S' curve OR 17 x 12cm tealight shade OR 10 x 20cm wallhanger/suncatcher. Larger or alternative pieces can be made, dependent on group size, but will be subject to a surcharge - we can discuss your requirement prior to the workshop.
