Beautiful Glasswork - places are limited
with Glass Specialist, Stevie Davies

Our popular fused Glass workshop returns. A wonderful opportunity to join this established workshop where you can create your very own unique bowls, dishes and free standing curves. Use various metal inclusions such as wire and shim along with coloured glass details to create your own intricately designed glass art.

Learn the technique of cutting and layering glass sheets to produce your own designs which will be fired over a specialist mould to create your choice of form. Pieces created at the workshops will be taken back to Stevie’s studio, fired and brought back Toot Hill School for collection. 

Bring along any imagery as inspiration or have a look at the samples in the workshop. With an emphasis on colour and line, your creations can be as detailed, simple, abstract or quirky as you wish. There are a number of options for you to create at least 2 or 3 pieces in the workshop depending on your chosen design. 

Please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss any queries you may have, big or small and make sure to visit Stevie's Facebook page to find lots of photos of past students creations, just search Stevie Davies Contemporary Glass Art.

£28 per person includes all materials

Mosaics - But Not As We Know It - places are limited
with Artist, Andrew Wynne

An exciting workshop focusing upon the creative potential of mosaic. This is a workshop that combines traditional material choices and techniques with newer, creative alternatives. Everyone will create a mosaic on a 30cm square hardwood ply base, which when completed, can be displayed inside or outside.

A structured, friendly approach with ongoing tutor demonstrations and guidance, visual and written resources and mosaic examples: history, design, cutting of ceramic and glass, materials choices, mosaic construction, outlining, grouting, cleaning and finishing.

All tools and materials are provided, but you are welcome to bring along any materials of your own to personalise your mosaic, ie: beads, coloured glass, ceramic pieces.

This workshop is suitable for beginners as well as those wishing to further develop their skills and knowledge. You are encouraged to give some thought to your designs, without overthinking it, and be open to the idea of spontaneous creativity on the day, making creative choices in response to the stimuli during the workshop.

Please wear old clothing and bring a large bag to take home your creation.

£30 per person includes all tools & materials
