Beginners to intermediate.
Kiln carving is completely different process to all the others we have listed.
Kiln Carving is essentially the ability to create texture and pattern in glass. Using fibre paper (of various thicknesses from 1mm, 3mm and 6mm) that can be cut, scratched, stamped, marked, embossed, etc., to create texture, shape and form that the glass will then form over. Creating your own unique work of art that can be then framed (frame not supplied), hung or placed as an ornament within your home or as a gift.
After you have tried kiln carving a few times and fully understand how the process works we will allow you to develop your style by adding colour, more layers etc. The possibilities are endless with this process.
All materials, equipment and tools provided. You may purchase more glass in the session should you wish too.
A fun learning and inspirational environment within a working studio and gallery space.
Light refreshments also provided (please advice of dietary requirements).
Contemporary glass artist Naomi Jacques will teach you during this session. Your work will be fired after the session, and be available to collect within 2 weeks of making. Glass fussing can be unpredictable with that we cannot guarantee all your work will turn out as you planned it to.
We often find when firings don’t go to plan you learn and can develop that learning in your next project. Also these happy accidents can be truly beautiful.

Please be aware Unit Twelve is about 1/2 mile BEFORE sat nav says you are there (in rural areas all addresses have the same postcode) so start looking out for the signs a bit earlier. Directions are below or follow this link (map) (Unit Twelve is just up a farm drive where the pin is). From M6, Junction 14 follow the A513 signposted Uttoxeter. At roundabout by Staffs University follow signs for A518 (Uttoxeter), with the police station on your left-hand side take the next major right, then first left at traffic lights. Approximately 1/2 mile on the left (see signs for hidden dips) is turning for Tixall Heath Farm and follow the signage through the farm to Unit Twelve.
If you are following sat nav you will need to look out for a bright pink sandwich board at the end of the farm drive (as it is a rural location so all houses have the same postcode in this small area).
If you are coming from Stafford it is about a mile past the traffic lights (by the crematorium) on the left-hand sign, directly after a sign for hidden dips (we are in the hidden dip).
OR if coming from Tixall, head through the village, towards Stafford, with the church on your left- we are about 2 miles on the right (again just after another hidden dips sign).
