Why not try your hand at traditional techniques of painting on glass, develop your leading/glazing skills, or learn about modern methods of glass fusing or copper foiling on one of our day workshops?
Dates: Workshops are usually held on Fridays or Saturdays between February and November. Our small classes (of between 6 and 8 people) enable you to get one-to-one tuition from experienced tutors. Check our What's On page for dates.
Age: All our one-day glass workshops are suitable for individuals aged 18+. Please see our Safeguarding Policy.
Ability: You do not need any prior experience - our workshops are suitable for both beginners and those wanting to develop techniques. However, some workshops do require standing at a workbench for a period of time, and so a reasonable level of physical ability is required. All of our workshops take place in Ely, and start at around 10am with a break for lunch, finishing by 5pm (NB. some workshop times may vary slightly).
Access: Please note that our Glass Painting and Glass Fusing courses are located on an upper level only accessible via steps. For more information, please see our Access page or contact us.
Cost: Workshops cost £95 per day or £49 for half day and must be booked in advance. All workshop costs are inclusive of materials, equipment and tuition. Please note lunch is not provided.
