Poppy's in glass
Poppy's in glass
Come and make your own fused glass artwork.
With full tuition of how to create your own poppy picture in glass. These glass poppy fields are very popular and look stunning framed.
Suitable for those who have never fused before and those who are developing further skills and applying learning. You can bring your own organic materials to try in your inclusions should you wish to. We cannot guarantee what they will do, these will be your experiments should you wish to explore those. All organic material must be completely dry and not contain any man made materials.
In this session you will be using Bullseye® glass that is 10cm x 10cm. The aim of this session is to create poppy field in the glass that can be mounted and framed to go on the wall. You can choose to do other flowers if you wish to.
All materials, equipment and tools provided.
All the glass needed is supplied. I will teach you the basics of glass fusing and how to apply colour and or metals into the glass. All you need to bring is your self, closed toe shoes. You may like to bring a sketchbook to make notes in for future developments. I will have the tools, glass frits, foils, wires, and stringers.
Light refreshments available (please advise of any dietary requirements).
You may purchase more glass in the session should you wish too.
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 fusing can be unpredictable with that we cannot guarantee all your work will turn out as you planned it to. I can post for a small fee (to cover P&P)
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.
Gift Vouchers are available – please do ask for more details.

I am to have your work fired and returned to you within 2 weeks.

Saturday 2nd November 2019
10.30am till 12.30pm

Pre-booking essential as spaces are limited.
Full payment will be taken at time of booking (this is non refundable or transferable to a different workshop).
We look forward to hearing from you.
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).
Once purchased you will receive a confirmation email. This will act as your proof of purchase. Be sure to leave your name, email address and a contact phone number for us to contact you.
Gift Certificates can be arranged please do get in touch.
