If you are an Absolute Beginner working with glass - but you love great art - then you'll love our brand new 2 ½ hour workshop.
Yes, you will make a 100% original design in art glass, inspired by the great man himself: Picasso!
Now - and this is very important - you don't have to be "creative" or "experienced" as you will be helped every step of the way as you learn this fascinating skill, and it's even more fun when you come along with a family or friends.
I'll show you how to prepare and construct your fused glass art piece in bright, cheerful colours of your choosing. Can you imagine your very own art glass creation hanging on your wall? Your piece of art will be carefully preserved in a square box frame for you to hang on your wall, or to share as a gift with someone you love if you can bear to part with it.
How much fun will you have creating something unique and crazy? And you know what? You can't go wrong!
Everything you need is included in the cost of this workshop:
- my advice and help, and an introduction to how "art glass" is created and used,
- all of your glass,
- your firings,
- the box frame,
- use of studio equipment including safety equipment,
- and the kiln paper you’ll need.
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 and I'll let you know when it's ready to be picked up. This usually happens 2-3 weeks after the workshop.
You need to be able to climb the stairs in our building, as its the only way to my new studio. You need to be over 18 years of age. You need to wear enclosed shoes, and no tank tops. And naturally we will abide by all the Covid19 laws of the day.
I have written a PDF which gives you more information about this workshop.

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
- Sense of fun
- You need to be able to walk up the staircase in our building, its the only way to our studio.
What to wear
Please wear clothes that includes some kind of sleeve (not a tank top) Please wear closed toe shoes. (no thongs or sandals that expose your toes)
No experience is necessary
Vendor since 2016
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.
