Level 1 Everyone is welcome!
prerequisite: Just come and play!
you get: A strawberry platter that measures 19cms x 30cms
duration: 90 minutes – twice.
This is a totally different type of “workshop”. This time its a two step process. You need to come in twice to be part of our strawberry shenanigans! Firstly, you come in and learn about glass art and build your base piece with a smattering of strawberries in the centre area of your platter. The next time you come in, you’ll discover that your platter has been fully fused and you just need to play with the “edge” design and add more strawberries, white strawberries flowers, and an array of green stems and stalks. You’ll love this step! Each step takes about 90 minutes with a gap of one week in between each firing. I can’t wait to see what you make! We’ll strawberries and cream during our second class together. I’ll probaby wear a t shirt with strawberries all over it and I’ll find some strawberry herbal tea for you too.
The platter you’ll make will be approximately 19 cms wide and 30cms in length. Its almost the perfect rectangle. You’ll love it.
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
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. Maybe bring strawberries (just joking).
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 an email from me showing the progress of your stunning strawberry platter! I’ll let you know when it is ready to be picked up, usually about 7 days after our last time together. Your masterpiece will be kept here at my Richmond studio for about a month after the workshop, it’ll 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.
Everyone is welcome! You can come with your children or grandchildren, however, they’ll be charged the same rate as you and they’ll need to be “supervised” by you throughout the whole class. Please let me know if you are bringing under 18’s.
I run loads of private workshops. I am always happy to add other dates or create a private workshop for you and your friends, if that suits you better. Just let me know.
