Glass Fusing
As well as ceramic painting we can offer glass fusing - this involves decorating a glass blank using coloured pieces of glass (such as frit, mosiacs, noodles) to create a unique design. Once decorated with your choice of design the items are left in the studio to be fired which fuses the glass together. Glass firing takes place only once a month so be sure to check when your item will be fired and ready for collection. Prices for this start from 8. Glass work may only be done by customers aged 10 years old or above. This is a good activity for guide groups or hen parties and can be offered as an alternative to a painting party for older children. Prices for a fused glass party from 13.50.
