Make this platter - how fabulous!

Next Available: Thu, 16 Feb 6:00PM (AEDT)
3 hours
Over 10 people have attended this class


Experience the thrill of making this unique and hugely popular "French Meadow" design, perfect to serve a french baguette - or whatever you like!  

The 3 hours gives you time to brush up your glass cutting skills and learn to make your own long long channel platter.

Your platter will be 15cms x 50cms.  

If you finish early you can also create other sizes if you prefer, (see below), of course,  you'll need to pay me directly if you'd like to create an alternate size to the normal 15cms x 50cms.

Please let me know at least 7 days before the Workshop which alternative you want, as I need to make sure I have the correct size kilnshelf and 5mm thick base glass in stock for you.

See below some other sizes you can consider for your "French Meadow" design.

These prices are correct as at 1/1/22 and are only for the alternative French Meadow designs and don't apply to any other workshops as this is the only workshop in which we use 5mm specialty clear glass.

  • 4 X French Meadow Coasters 9cm x 9cm each - $99
  • 20cm x 20cm plate - $99.00
  • 20cm x 35cm platter - $155.00
  • 25cm x 25cm bowl - $145.00
  • Giant Fruit Platter 33cms x 44cms $300.00

Please let me know when you book in, if you'd like me to precut the base for something else.  I need to make sure that I have the base glass and the correct size kiln shelf available for you.

I can also devise a time and price for you to make multiple items if you would like to, eg a plate, a platter and a bowl. Your own personalised "French Meadow" collection.  Just message me to discuss.

Once again, you'll get to choose from the large selection of transparent and opaque colours, stringers, noodles, frit and part-sheets that I have at the studio at the time of your workshop! If you want to use a particular glass colour, please ring me or visit the studio to check I have it in stock.

You'll be surprised at how clever you are at making something wonderful!  

Please wear clothes that includes some kind of sleeve (not a singlet top).  Please wear closed toe shoes. (No thongs, no sandals that expose your toes.)   You need to be able to stand securely on both feet and climb one flight of stairs to the workshop.  We adhere to the Covid19 rules of the day.  If you have been unwell call me and we'll reschedule your class.  Of course, there's zero cost for rescheduling.

If you'd like to bring refreshments, alcohol or nibbles to this workshop - that'll be fine, assuming you are over 18 years of age.  

You'll be photographed during this workshop, please let me know if you don't want this to happen.  

Once the class is over and the clean up is done, all you need to do is wait for an email from me showing the progress of your mini masterpieces and I'll let you know when they are ready to be picked up, usually about 14 days after your workshop.

Your creations will be kept here at the studio for 3 months after the workshop, they'll be donated to charity after that time.


For the moment only with people who are fully vaccinated can attend my classes. (I have 2 family members who are in the "at risk" category) so please be aware of this before you book. I am fully vaccinated & boosted as of December 2021.  We adhere to the Covid19 rules of the day.  If you have been unwell, stay away, we'll reschedule your workshop at a time to suit you.  


If you don't see a time and date that suits you here please email me and we will add a new date that suits you.   I am always happy to add other dates or create a private workshop for you and your friends, if that suits you better.   There is space here for a larger group of people to come to this workshop.   Just let me know.  

Our new studio is a creative, fun, safe, friendly and stimulating environment.

I look forward to seeing you soon and introducing this amazing craft/art to you.  

You’ll love this workshop!

See you soon,

Car parks are surprisingly easy to find around our studios.  We are on the intersection of Swan Street, and Bendigo Street, Richmond. 

You can often park right outside - fortunately we are at the quiet end of Swan Street.

Remember there are Clearways in Swan Street, Richmond.

According to Google, there’s a 6-minute walk from Burnley Railway Station to 550 Swan Street (its 450 metres away). 

Tram 70 stops a few metres from our front door. 

Ring me when you get here if the downstairs door is locked, (mostly it opens automatically).  My studio is upstairs so you need to be able to walk upstairs safely.

Please wear clothes that includes some kind of sleeve (not a tank top) Please wear closed toe shoes. (no thongs).

I’m like a kid in a lolly shop.  I am endlessly impressed and inspired – by the work of others, by colours and textures, by everything around me, man-made and natural! 

There’s so much to see, to interpret into glass!

I love it all. I love sharing it with everyone – that’s why I run workshops – it makes me happy and its my hope that some of this joy spills over to you as well.

I love my job.

You too can create graphic Mondrian-inspired bowls and platters and feminist invoking “Break The Glass Ceiling” pendants, brooches and sometimes earrings in these workshops.  You can create an artwork for your walls in the fabulous Heart Art Class. 

I love the clash of sometimes crazy and sometimes controlled geometry, that can see in my Paris Elegance series with its DNA centre design element. I suspect they indulge both the conservative and bold characteristics within. 

The relationship between the glass elements in each piece means no two pieces are exactly alike, much as no story is ever retold in exactly the same way, so is every piece of glass you create in a workshop. You can truly say, no-one else, anywhere, has one quite like it!  You'll also remember that giving a Gift Voucher is another uniuqe gift that expresses the value of your unique friendship.

Ultimately, I am sharing love. The love of life. Share it with me?
