prerequisite: Finish our Plate Making Level 1.
you get: To make a baguette platter in our famous French Meadow design
duration: 3 hours
Experience the thrill of making this unique and hugely popular “French Meadow” design, perfect to serve a french baguette – or whatever you like! This exciting 3 hours gives you time to brush up your glass cutting skills and learn to make your own long long channel platter.
Your platter will be 15cms x 50cms, or you can create other sizes if you prefer, (see below), but you’ll need to pay me directly if you’d like to create an alternate size.
Please let me know at least 7 days before the Workshop which alternative you want, as I need to make sure I have the correct size kiln shelf and 5mm thick base glass in stock for you.
See below some other sizes you can consider for your “French Meadow” design, if not for this workshop maybe for a future workshop.
These prices are correct as at March 2022 and are only for the alternative French Meadow designs and don’t apply to any other workshops as this is the only workshop in which we use 5mm specialty clear glass. You can make these alternative items for the following prices:
- 4 x French Meadow Coasters – $99
- 20cm x 20cm plate – $99.00
- 20cm x 35cm platter – $155.00
- 25cm x 25cm bowl – $145.00
- Giant Fruit Platter 33cms x 44cms $300.00
Please let me know when you book in which item you’d like to create if it isn’t the baguette platter, so that I can have the base glass and the correct size kiln shelf available for you. I can also devise a time and price for you to make multiple items if you would like to, eg a plate, a platter and a bowl. Your own personalized “French Meadow” collection. Just message me to discuss.
You get to choose from the large selection of transparent and opaque colours, stringers, noodles, frit and part-sheets that I have at the studio at the time of your workshop! If you want to use a particular colour visit the studio to check I have it in stock.
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.
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.
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 items and I’ll let you know when your baguette platter is ready to be picked up. This usually happens within 2 weeks of the workshop.
Your art glass creation will be kept here at the studio for 3 months after the workshop, they’ll be donated to charity after that time.
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. (I have 2 family members who are in the “at risk” category) so please be aware of this before you book.
