2021 Therapeutic Mandala Glass Workshops March April New Dates

I’m offering new Therapeutic Mandala glass workshop dates for March and April. I offer both 1-day workshops and 3-day workshops. Below I have some information about the Therapeutic Mandala workshops. If you would like to look at the dates or book, you can find all of my glass workshops here: https://thebirdonthebranch.co.uk/events/

Therapeutic Glass workshops information:

“I have chosen mandala patterns because they have been used for many years to reduce stress. Of course, you can come up with an original idea or bring you own printout. The glass measurements are 15cm in diameter.

In this workshop, you will be shown all the materials and techniques we are going to use. Printouts of mandala patterns are available to choose from. For this session we will work with metal wires and foils. We will cut the foil to size, and the wire bent and hammered to fit the pattern. We will incorporate different frits (very small chips of crushed coloured glass) to enhance the design. We are going to use a technique called glass fusing, that means that after you have finished decorating your glass piece, it is going to be fired in a kiln so that the glass piece can completely fuse together. It needs to stay in the kiln for around 24 hours from firing to cooling, afterwards the glass piece can be picked up or sent by post.”

Additional information:

In each of the workshops, there are 4 spaces available, 2 tables with a glass divider in-between. There will be disinfectant for people to use as they come in. Every station has its own materials available for creating your decorations, and after every workshop I clean the stations.

Bring your own water bottle, tea and coffee are available. If you want you can bring your own mug with you.

The glass will need to stay in the kiln for around 24 hours from firing to cooling, afterwards they can be picked up or sent by post. If you want your pieces sent by post it will be an additional £5.

2021 Glass Workshops Different Types Now Available March April New Dates

I’m offering new glass workshop dates for March and April. The workshops shown here include the 3 small decorations workshop, the metals workshop, and the mosaic workshop. Below I have some information about each of these workshops. If you would like to look at the dates or book, you can find all of my glass workshops here: https://thebirdonthebranch.co.uk/events/

Mosaic workshop information:

“In these workshops, you will learn how to score and cut glass and how to combine and place different glass shapes to create your own special glass art piece. We will use coloured glass pieces, and over clear glass, we will create a pattern of our own design. This process involves cutting glass, therefore all participants will be wearing safety goggles, which will be provided.”

These workshops are 5 hours long and cost £60 per person

Metal workshop information:

“In these workshops we will be working with metal foils, which we will cut and score, and metal wires, which we will cut, bend, and hammer. We will learn different techniques for working with wire to achieve different effects and also how different metals combine, react together and how that affects the result. The metals will be placed between glass so that the design can be captured.

Working with metals can give you the opportunity to create detailed pieces.

These sessions involve loud noises: hammering of metal wires on small anvils. If you are sensitive to noise (and even if you aren’t), you may wish to bring ear plugs to wear while we are working. Safety goggles will be provided.”

These workshops are 4 hours long and cost £45 per person

3 small glass pieces workshop information:

“In this workshop, you will be shown all the materials and techniques we are going to use. For this session we will work with metal wires and foils. We will cut the foil to size, and the wire bent and hammered to fit the pattern. We will incorporate different frits (very small chips of crushed coloured glass) to enhance our decorations.

New Mandala and Christmas workshop dates

Glass workshops in Willingham.

I’m running glass workshops in Willingham, Cambridgeshire and the new dates are on the poster below. I have been running workshops for many years, and now I have adapted the working stations to make it a safe environment to be creative in, there is a maximum of 4 spaces. These workshops are beginner friendly.

Mandala workshops.?
I have chosen mandala patterns for these workshops because they have been used for many years to reduce stress. Of course, you can come up with an original idea or bring you own printout and there will be examples and patterns to choose from. The glass measurements are 15cm in diameter.
For the Mandala workshops, there are full day workshops (6 hours) or 3-day workshops (2 hours each day).

Christmas workshops.?
Every year I was buying special decorations for each child to remember each year together. Last year we didn’t find anything which resonated with us, so we made our own special Christmas decorations out of glass. This gave me the idea to give everybody else the same opportunity, to create their own memento for themselves or for family and friends.

The Christmas workshop is 2 hours, this is plenty of time to create 3 beautiful Christmas decorations in a variety of different shapes. However, if you find yourself having more time you can make more pieces at an additional cost.

More information about the workshops.??
In these workshops, you will be shown all the materials and techniques we are going to use. We are going to use a technique called glass fusing, that means that after you have finished decorating your glass, after the workshop, it will be fired in a kiln so that it can completely fuse together. It needs to stay in the kiln for around 24 hours from firing to cooling, afterwards the glass can be picked up or sent by post.

There will be disinfectant for people to use as they come in. Every station has its own materials available for creating your mandala glass piece, and after every class I clean the stations. Tea and coffee are available. If you want you can bring your own mug with you.
I hope you are ready for an artistic adventure, creating a mandala art piece to enhance positive energies around yourself, or creating beautiful Christmas decorations for you and your family and friends to enjoy.

I’m looking forward to seeing you here,

Jutta ?

Commission Work

This is commission work for a wedding, with their chosen music notes and the love they share for cats, made with the fused-glass technique as a hanging glass decoration.

I create commission pieces for any occasion, these are memories which can keep forever. Please contact me if you are looking for something special as a present for a loved one, or something you would like to keep for yourself.

These pieces are suitable to hang in the garden, they are weather resistant and the colours don’t fade.

I will be more than happy to design you a special bespoke glass art piece with meaning.

New Therapeutic Glass Workshops in Willingham

New glass workshops are available in Willingham and the new dates are on the poster underneath. This is the first time I am opening to the public after the lockdown. I made the workshop a safe environment for people to come and be creative in. I hope you are ready for an artistic adventure, creating a mandala art piece to enhance positive energies around yourself. I will have disinfectant indoors for people to use as they come in, but please bring your own mask. Every station has its own material available for creating your mandala and after every class I go over the surfaces and tools with disinfectant. Tea and coffee are available, but bring your own mug with you ?

These dates are for new customers only, for people with pieces still to be completed contact me for alternative appointments.

I’m looking forward to seeing you hear. If you have any questions, please let me know.
