Draping fun – a Level 3 workshop
Come back and make another piece of glass art. Now you’ve completed one of our Level 2 workshops, you can use your fusing skills to create another beautiful piece of glass.
The 3 hours gives you time to brush up on your cutting skills and have some fun doing a drape.
Make it in the colour combination and design of your choosing. We usually create a piece that fits on a 30 x 30cm kiln shelf. We fuse it once, and when you are happy with it, we will drape it for you. It’s so much fun and the results are stunning!
This class is only for 2 people at a time, so you have plenty of room to move around the studio and to make your draped masterpiece with ease.
Choose from our large selection of transparent colours, opaque colours, stringers, noodles and rods and “part sheets” that are in the studio at the time of your workshop. If you want particular colours or glass type, you’re best advised to check with me more than a week in advance so you have exactly the glass you want in stock. I must add that if you want to use loads of red and orange in a really large design, we might have to adjust some of these quoted prices.
The prerequisite for all the above is that you have all attended my LEVEL TWO WORKSHOP.
WHAT DO I WEAR?
Please wear clothes that includes some kind of sleeve (not a tank top). Please wear 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.
WHEN WILL MY MASTERPIECE BE FINISHED?
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 masterpiece and I’ll let you know when it is all fused, draped, wrapped and ready to be picked up. This usually happens within 2 weeks of the workshop. By the way, your creations will be kept here at the studio for 3 months after the workshop, they’ll be donated to charity after that time.
WHAT DO I BRING?
If you’d like to bring alcoholic or other refreshments or nibbles to this workshop – that’ll be fine, assuming you are over 18 years of age.
For the moment only with people who are fully vaccinated can attend my classes. We adhere to the Covid19 rules of the day. If you have been unwell, stay away and we’ll reschedule your class at zero cost until you are well enough to come and have some fun!
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. Remember there are Clearways in Swan Street, Richmond and the parking here is 2 hours so we’ll set our alarms and make sure we all move our cars at the 2 hour point.
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.
If you’d like to organize a workshop with more friends here at Swan Street Studios, please feel free to get in touch, it’ll be easy and fun to arrange this with you. It’s a great way to catch up with family and friends.
If you don’t see a time and date that suits you here please email me and we will add a new date just for you.
You’ll love this workshop! jenie
