Drape your own piece of glass Level 2 workshop
(+2 more dates)
Draping fun - a Level 2 workshop
Come back and make another piece of glass art. Now you've completed our Level 1 Plate making workshop, you can use your new-found fusing skills to create another beautiful piece of glass.
The 3 hours gives you time to brush up on your cutting skills and have some fun doing a drape.
Make it in the colour combination and design of your choosing. We usually create a piece that fits on a 30 x 30cm kiln shelf. We fuse it once, and when you are happy with it, we will drape it for you. It's so much fun and the results are stunning!
Everything is included!
All your glass, your tools and all firings.
So come and have some fun making your own sculptural piece like the ones in the images here.
This class is only for 2 people at a time, so you have plenty of room to move around the studio and to make your draped masterpiece with ease.
Our aim is that you'll build your base piece in the first 3 hour session. We'll fire it and we'll then cold work your drape so it can be fired again and draped for you.
Choose from the large selection of transparent and opaque colours, stringers, noodles, frit, part-sheets and rods that are in my studio at the time of your workshop! NOTE Please visit the studio before your workshop if you have a particular glass or colour you want to use.
Feel free to BYO drinks & nibbles if you like. As our workshop is on the first floor of our building, you'll need to be able to walk up our staircase. Wear clothes that include some kind of sleeve (not a tank top). And wear closed-toe shoes (no thongs, and no sandals that expose your toes).
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 artpiece before its final slump firing.
If you can't find a date here that suits your diary please email me, so we can find a new date especially for you.
My plan at the moment is that until March 1st, 2022 I will be changing my workshops to be simply one on one workshops or for people from the same family bubble. 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 as of May 2021.
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.
Please note: all work from this class will be kept for 3 months, after which time, any uncollected items will be disposed of.

Car parks are relatively easy to find around our studios. We are on the intersection of Swan Street, and Bendigo Street, Richmond.
Most of my workshops are now run on the weekends or outside 9-5 so you’ll mostly be able to find parking nearby.
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 buzzer on arrival and I'll open the downstairs sliding glass door. The studio is upstairs so you need to be able to walk upstairs safely.
What to bring
- an idea of what you are going to create this time
What to wear
Please wear clothes that includes some kind of sleeve (not a tank top) Please wear closed toe shoes. (no thongs). As always, you need to be able to stand securely on both feet to be a part of any of my workshops and particularly at this location as the toilets are upstairs. Of course, you must be over 18 years of age and need to wear enclosed shoes, no tank tops and abide by all the Covid19 laws of the day.
The prerequisite is that you have attended one of my LEVEL ONE(1) WORKSHOPS previously. Anyone under the age of 18 needs to be accompanied by an adult or carer who also attends the workshop.
Please note that you may be photographed during this workshop.
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. These styles can be explored more in the Level 2 classes.
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?

If you book into an event and miss it, we can't reschedule or refund the tickets after the fact.
Our classes take careful planning, seats are limited and we cut the glass and prepare the studio based on the number of people. I run a small business and my margins are very tight.
My standard class fees include a $40 non-refundable, non-transferable administration fee, which is forfeited if a student cancels their enrolment or transfers to another class session. Students who cancel or transfer their enrollment six or more business days prior to the beginning of a class will receive a refund of the class fee, minus the $40 administration fee. Cancellations or transfers made fewer than six business days prior to commencement of class will be refunded or transferred only if we are able to fill the student’s space (minus the $40 administration fee). No refunds or transfers will be granted once the class has started.
- If there is a last-minute change in plans (less than 12 hours' notice), then sorry you forfeit the ticket.
- Alternatively you can send a friend along and they can use the ticket in your name.
- From time to time we need to cancel an event, in this instance we will notify you by email and text your mobile as well. We automatically transfer you into the next event, but you can request a alternative date, hopefully within the next 3 months.
