This Plate Making Workshop for absolute beginners - Level One.
Learn a brand new skill and create your own unique glass platter: it'll be 25x25cmin in the colours of your choosing. A wonderful and personal gift, or simply a treasure to enjoy yourself.
During the workshop you will learn:
- the basic and correct skills required to use glass as an artistic medium
- the fundamentals of glass cutting
- all about art glass how it performs in the kiln: you'll be introduced to the endless potential of glass fusing and slumping. Warning! You may be addicted! I did!
What you get:
- everything you need to make your 25cms x 25cms plate
- all materials used, including your choice from at least two dozen different colours of glass
- use of our studio tools
- kiln firing of your plate after you leave (usually 2 kiln firings)
- forget about the real world for a couple of hours
- listen to great music!
You'll be surprised at how clever you are at making something wonderful!
During the workshop I'll take photographs of you for my social media, if you don't want this to happen just let me know.
No previous experience required!
Please wear clothes that includes some kind of sleeve (not a tank 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.
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 items and I'll let you know when they are ready to be picked up. This usually happens within 2 weeks of the 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.
If you'd like to bring alcoholic or other refreshments or nibbles to this workshop - that'll be fine, assuming you are over 18 years of age.
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. We adhere to the Covid19 rules of the day.
If you'd like to organize a workshop with more friends at your location or here at Swan Street Studios, please feel free to get in touch, it'll be easy and fun to arrange this with you. It's a great team building exercise and a fabulous way to catch up with family and friends

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.

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.
