Make a landing pad for your favourite cocktail! Make a gift for someone you love, or bring them along and make your coasters together. This hugely popular workshop has been created by popular demand - so, here it is - you will make four unique coasters designed for your home or to give as a gift!
It's easy and fun! Create mini works of art for everyone to enjoy, while you learn a wonderful new skill. Your coasters can look similar or all look different - it's up to you - and match your decor or just your favourite colours. You're in charge: it's your time off.
This workshop is perfect for you if you are an "Absolute Beginner".
During our time together you'll learn:
- the basic, correct skills required to use glass as an artistic medium
- the fundamentals of glass cutting
- about art glass and how it performs in the kiln
- your introduction to the endless joy of glass fusing
What you get:
- Everything you need to make your four beautiful coasters,
- all materials used, including your choice from dozen of different glass colours
- use of studio tools
- kiln firing of your coasters after you leave (up to 2 kiln firings as required)
- Forget about the real world for a couple of hours and enjoy our unique artists studios
- Oh, and listen to great music! Dancing is allowed :)
You'll be surprised at how clever you are at making something wonderful!

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. About 2 weeks after your workshop, your mini masterpieces will be ready for you to collect from our studio in Swan Street, Richmond.
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 don't see a time and date that suits you here please email me and we will add a new date that suits you.

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

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.
Ultimately, I am sharing love. The love of life the joy of playing in my studio. Share it with me.
