Come and make a Charcuterie Platter!  You’ll love this workshop!  It’s for absolute beginners – Level One.

It’ll be 25x25cm in the colours of your choosing and it’ll be gorgeous, like the pictures you can see here.

During the workshop you will learn:

  • the basic and correct skills required to use glass as an artistic medium
  • the fundamentals of glass cutting
  • about art glass and how it performs in the kiln.
  • you’ll be introduced to the endless potential of glass fusing and slumping. Warning! You may be addicted! I did!

What you get:

  • everything you need to make your 25cms x 25cms cheeseboard or charcuterie platter.
  • all materials used, including your choice from at least two dozen different colours of glass
  • use of our studio tools
  • kiln firing
  • to forget about the real world for a couple of hours
  • to enjoy great music!

You’ll be surprised at how clever you are at making something wonderful.  No previous experience required for this class.


Please wear clothes that includes some kind of sleeve (not a singlet top) and closed toe shoes.  (No thongs, no sandals that expose your toes.)   You need to be able to stand securely on both feet and climb one flight of stairs to the workshop.


If you’d like to bring refreshments, alcohol or nibbles to this workshop – that’ll be fine, assuming you are over 18 years of age.


Once the class is over and the clean up is done, all you need to do is wait for an email from me showing the progress of your charcuterie board and I’ll let you know when it is ready to be picked up, usually between 10 – 14 days after your workshop.

Your masterpiece will be kept here at my Richmond studio for 3 months after the workshop, it’ll be donated to charity after that time.  During the workshop I’ll take photographs of you for my website and for my social media, if you don’t want this to happen just let me know.


My studio is a part of the Swan Street Artist Studio complex. We are on Level 1 of 550 Swan Street Richmond. Its a contemporary art space run by Professional Artists, you’ll love having your workshop in this unique first floor warehouse.

Car parks are surprisingly easy to find around our studios. We are on the intersection of Swan Street, and Bendigo Street, Richmond.

You can often park right outside – fortunately we are at the quiet end of Swan Street.  But remember the parking here is 2 hours so we’ll set our alarms and make sure we all move our cars around the 2 hour point.  Remember there are Clearways in Swan Street, Richmond.

According to Google, there’s a 6-minute walk from Burnley Railway Station to 550 Swan Street (its 450 metres away).  Tram 70 stops a few metres from our front door.


We adhere to the Covid19 rules of the day. If you have been unwell call me and we’ll reschedule your class.  Of course, there’s zero cost for rescheduling.


I run loads of private workshops.  Bring your family and friends and have the studio to yourselves!  It’ll be so much fun.  Its a great catch-up venue.

If you don’t see a time and date that suits you here please email me and we will add a new date that suits you.   I am always happy to add other dates or create a private workshop for you and your friends, if that suits you better.   There is space here for a larger group of people to come to this workshop.   Just let me know.

Our new studio is a creative, fun, safe, friendly and stimulating environment.

Please remember that you can come to this workshop as often as you like.  7 is currently the record number of revisits by one person.   Come back and make a different design each time.  Its fun, creative and non stressful here in the studio!

I look forward to seeing you soon and introducing this amazing craft/art to you.

You’ll love this workshop!

See you soon,
