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.
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).
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.
