If you were ever looking for a place to try glass art – this is it! Welcome!
If you are an absolute beginner who loves to learn new things then you’ll love this brand new 90 minute workshop!
Can you imagine your very own unique design on your wall? During the 90 minutes, you will produce your own piece of art glass, that I will fire in my kiln and secure in a birch wood box frame to hang on the wall or stand on your sideboard.
No experience is required – this is a fun workshop for absolute beginners. It includes:
- everything you need to cut and create your kiln-formed heart,
- the wooden box frame
- all the glass – there are loads of great colours to choose from
- the kiln firing, including kiln paper
- use of our studio equipment
This workshop is perfect for four people so bring your friends and family and share the fun. Or if it’s just you, you’ll make some new friends!
You’ll be surprised at how clever you are at making something wonderful! 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.
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 DO I GET MY MODERN GLASS ART BACK?
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 artwork and I’ll let you know when it is all framed 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. (As this is a 90 minute workshop so you probably don’t have to worry about your parking.)
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
