you get: to make a Giant Mondrian Wall Clock, absolutely everything is included, the firings, the cold working, kiln work, these clock hands, silent sweep mechanism, battery, backing board, hanging wire, everything, ready to hang on your wall. All you need to do is design it and build it.
duration: 3 hours – more hours if required 🙂
Mondrian Wall Clock – run at your request!
Can you imagine? Escape the real world and come and build your own Mondrian clock. You are going to love making this! Email me with your interest. The general requirement is that you are able to consistently cut strips of glass about 1cm wide. If you are a super fast learner we can try making this in your first session. It has been done before – twice!
The 3 hours gives you time to brush up on your cutting skills and have some fun building this amazing Mondrian inspired wall clock. If it takes you more than 3 hours to make this – don’t worry, we’ll schedule another block of time for you to come and finish your amazing clock. This is a stress free zone 🙂
This design is 38cms x 38cms if you want to make a different size or shape please let me know. The price will be altered accordingly.
Come and have some fun making your own clock, like the one here.
This class is for 2 people at a time, so you have plenty of room to move around the studio and to listen to the music of your choice and make your masterpiece with ease.
Everything is included (except the wall). This’ll be fun!
Please wear clothes that include some kind of sleeve (not a singlet top) and closed toe shoes. (No thongs, no sandals that expose your toes).
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.
Please bring a face mask in case you decide to make your own glass powders.
Bring your friends and create memories together.
Once the class is over and the clean up is done, all you need to do is wait for a message from me showing the progress of your clock. As there are multiple steps to preparing this clock for your wall, we’ll keep in touch and let you know when its ready to be collected. Usually well within 4 weeks of the workshop. By the way, your creation will be kept here at the studio for 3 months after the workshop, it will be donated to charity after that time.
If you’re feeling under the weather from flu or covid, no worries, call me and we’ll reschedule your class. Of course, there’s zero cost for rescheduling.
I’ll take your picture during this workshop, always let me know if you don’t want this to happen.
Here at my studio I try my best to look after your glass creations. I’ll treat them with the utmost care. However, sometimes accidents and breakages happen along the way. Unfortunately, this is the nature of working with kilns and with glass. For example cracks can occur due during the heating and cooling stages in the kiln. This is due to the fragile nature of glass. I will try my best to make sure your piece survives its journey however please understand that risks are involved.
- My studio is a part of the Swan Street Artist Studio complex. We are on Level 1 of 550 Swan Street Richmond. It’s a contemporary art space run by Professional Artists, you’ll love having your workshop in this unique first floor warehouse. It’s a creative, fun, safe, friendly and stimulating environment. You’ll love being here!
- 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 get you to set your alarm and make sure we all move our cars at 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.
