Join us in Spring 2019 for our popular fused glass workshop, perfect for complete beginners.
Learn how to make your very own beautiful glass pieces in our colourful and welcoming environment in the basement of Little Beach Boutique, right in the heart of the North Laine, Brighton.
You will be introduced to the techniques needed to make your own unique dish, coasters, wall panels and jewellery and be able to make 3-4 of your own glass pieces which will be kiln-fired afterwards.
Groups will be a maximum of 6 people, with plenty of opportunity to ask questions, practice cutting and layering glass to make your own pieces for kiln firing.
Suzanne will guide you through -
Techniques of kiln-fusing, including 'tac' fusing and slumping
Working with different glass forms, including powders, frit and stringers
Adding detail into glass, using enamels, decals, stencilling and metal inserts
There will then be time to practice the techniques that Suzanne has introduced to you, giving you the time and materials to make some pieces to be fired.
We will fire your pieces after the workshop, ready for you to collect at a later date, or post them to you for a small fee.
- Running time - 11am until 3pm with a short lunch break.
- Groups will be no more than six people.
- Tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits will be provided
- The course can be booked online or in the shop
- Course gift vouchers are available
Recent reviews of our workshop from our Facebook page -
"We had the most awesome day visiting LBB this weekend for a glass making workshop. Great value for money and we had a lovely time being creative. Even my other half who is not creative enjoyed it. 100% recommended and really good fun. Suzanne and her team are very welcoming and she did an amazing job telling us all about the process. Very hands on and happy to help you. Can’t wait to see what came out of the Kiln. Brightened up our dreary Sunday."
"I bought my wife a voucher for the glass-making session as a gift. We both love the style and colour of Suzanne's work, and Sara absolutely loved the whole thing. Nothing was too much trouble, Suzanne was generous with her time, advice and materials, and the results are beautiful. Just go there. Today. It is a special place."
