Venue, Timing, Cost
Are you ready to start making what you want to make in your own time, no pressures? Regular Wednesday evening workshops running 6.30pm – 9.00pm could be perfect for you. 10-week blocks are available for £360.00 and if you can’t make it here one week, we will carry it forward so you don’t miss out. This cost covers the use of the studio, use of stocked equipment and a basic firing – longer firings such as for casting, using the whole of the larger kiln space or a second firing within a week will be an added charge. You will also need to buy your glass on top of this. I suggest putting £50/£100 into a kitty and keep a tally of how much you use, then topping up again as you run out. You may be a complete beginner wanting a to give a go or have experience and are looking for a space to use to experiment. Either way you will be welcome, and I will be here to help whenever you need me. To give an idea – you could make an item in an evening or carry the work onto the following visit/s and re-fire the same piece or fuse pre-fired pieces together.
The studio is well stocked and the kilns ready for firing. Along with all usual studio tools we have a small sandblast cabinet, pillar drills and a wet saw. If you find you need glass we haven’t got in stock, you can order it in or bring it with you. Just so you know, I use solely Bullseye glass and you can’t mix it with another type. Well, not if you want to keep your art in one piece… You can buy it through me or from several stockists around the UK.
These are fun, relaxed evenings to take away the stresses of your daily work and be creative around like-minded people. Teas, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits are always available.
