Absolutely! No experience is required for any of my Level 1 Workshops. We’ll show you everything you need to know before you start. Its easy and its fun!
Nonsense! Glass is a beautiful material. We’ve never met anyone who couldn’t make something nice with it. Its easy and its fun!
Nope. This is a fused glass workshop. Unlike blown glass, which is completely different, you don’t work with hot glass so there is no chance of burning yourself. Your project is melted in a kiln after you’re finished.
Yes. My Richmond studio perfectly suits 4 people at a time. I have access to a larger space in our studio “dining area”, so if you want a reunion or gathering of more than 4 people and up to about 8 people, we’ll simply run the class in the dining room (which is next to my studio). Email or phone me to talk about the dates you want.
Absolutely, custom sizes and colors are available. Each project is unique and I work on them one at a time. Let me know what size and what design you like the look of and email me ([email protected]) and we can discuss how to create exactly what you are dreaming about.
We have no doubt your kids are awesome, however unless they are 18 years or older we ask that you let some more birthdays pass before bringing them to a studio event, unless they are accompanied by a full paying adult or carer in the same workshop.
Simply send an email of the piece you are interested in to me and the process begins there. I can then quote prices and let you know what I have available or if I need to make one for you.
At my studio, we like to give the students an opportunity to try a variety of quality tools during our class. No kits are required, we provide everything for class use.
We will call you to let you know that we need to remake your piece. You’ll be given a selection of dates to come and re-make it yourself. You will make it the exact same style and colors that you did previously. Sometimes pieces break in the annealer ( a process of heating and slow cooling in order to toughen and reduce brittleness.) or when we are cold working them, (smoothing the rough edges.) Alternatively, you can keep your broken pieces that we can redesign into several smaller items. Its up to you.
Of course you can! We encourage you to take pictures and video and always appreciate when we are tagged in your photos on Facebook and Instagram, and you are welcome to write reviews on We Teach Me or on TripAdvisor.
Yes, if you’d like a workshop for a book club, or mother’s group, or team building, please email me for all the details. I can book the gallery space or dining room here at my studio space in Swan Street Richmond. So a larger group your friends experiencing a workshop together would be huge fun for everyone. We are an old fashioned staircase so you all need to be able to climb our stairs. Email me to arrange this. [email protected]
We recommend hand washing for all bowls and platters. Do not place in a dishwasher, oven, or microwave.
As I cut each glass item myself its easy to cut it and design it to your specific dimensions. Please let me know what size and shape you’d like and I can start designing it for you. [email protected] is the best email address.
Please wear closed-toed shoes and a light shirt to the studio. Its best in a glass studio to have your upper arms covered, so please don’t wear a tank top, pop on a t-shirt please. For any more information please feel free to email me: [email protected] is the best email address.
BYO drinks and food, especially if the workshop is for a specific event, your friends birthday – feel free to bring what you want. Our aim is to enjoy ourselves and make some art as well. We have dozens of glasses here.
Your project will be ready to pick up within two weeks. You’ll get more details during the workshop.
