During the workshop you will learn:

What you get:
- everything you need to make your cute candle sconces
- each base is approx 4cm x 7cms
- make as many as you like in your 90 minute class
- all materials used, including your choice from at least two dozen different colours of glass
- use of our studio tools
- kiln firing
- the candles ready to light when you collect them
- to forget about the real world for a couple of hours
- to enjoy great music!
You’ll be surprised at how clever you are at making something wonderful. No previous experience required for this class and you’ll be photographed during this workshop, please let me know if you don’t want this to happen.
WHAT TO WEAR?
Please wear clothes that includes some kind of sleeve (not a singlet top) and closed toe shoes. (No thongs, no sandals that expose your toes.) You need to be able to climb one flight of stairs to my studio.
DO I BRING ANYTHING:
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.
WHEN DO I GET MY TEALIGHT CANDLE SCONCES?
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 candle sconces and I’ll let you know when they are ready to be picked up, usually between 10 – 14 days after your workshop.
Your masterpieces will only be kept here at my Richmond studio for 3 months after the workshop and they’ll be donated to charity after that time.
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.
We adhere to the Covid19 rules of the day. If you have been unwell call me and we’ll reschedule your class. Of course, there’s zero cost for rescheduling.
I run loads of private workshops. Don’t be shy, bring your family and friends and have the studio to yourselves! It’ll be so much fun. Its a great catch up venue for you all and a fabulous way to create memories together.
If you don’t see a time and date that suits you here please email me and we will add a new date that suits you. I am always happy to add other dates or create a private workshop for you and your friends, if that suits you better. There is space here for a larger group of people to come to this workshop. Just let me know.
Our new studio is a creative, fun, safe, friendly and stimulating environment. The music is good here too.
I look forward to seeing you soon and introducing this amazing art to you.
