Fused Glass Workshop – Lanterns

Thurs 18th July
1:30-3:30pm ish – £66 (or less, see description below)

I want to share my 15+ years of experience with you. This in person fused glass workshop is held at my Derbyshire studio and gallery space in the middle of Wirksworth near Matlock.

About this fused glass workshop

This session is open to your design, within reason! The course fee includes the metal lantern itself, that we will replace the clear glass panels with specialist glass which you decorate in any design you wish using mostly precut glass waves/bars and tiles, frit balls, rods and paint. Your panels will be fired and fitted together before you collect, ready for you to enjoy!  Think about a version of my flower garden, seascape, winter landscape or painted trees workshops but on four sides of a lantern. You get to have 4 times the fun! I am aware some people might want to only decorate 1, 2 or 3 sides of the lantern and I am more than willing to talk about this, and reduce the fee to suit. £66 for 4 panels, £57 for 3, £48 for 2. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch about booking this session at the reduced price/reduced number of panels, just email me or use the contac form.

Simply complete your design during the session and leave it at the studio for me to fire, clean and finish ready for you to display and enjoy. We will arrange for you to collect your piece after a few weeks or I can post your finished piece at cost.

I will talk through all the Health & Safety in the session but I want you to know now, you will be handling precut glass pieces, they have pointy bits but with the right handling, they won’t hurt you.  Recommended for ages 13+, all under 16s to be accompanied by a paying adult.

Book with friends or come on your own for a supportive and fun creative fused glass workshop experience. All fused glass workshop attendees receive a 10% discount on purchases from the gallery shop on the day, just a little way I can say thank you for joining me!

Things to bring with you:

  • A bottle of water or travel cup of coffee/tea.
  • An apron or old clothes so you don’t have to worry about getting glue or other materials on them.
  • Pictures or images that inspire you, even if it’s just for colour reference but remember we will be a limited to the effects achievable with the materials and tools though.
  • An open mind and willingness to experiment.


When booking make sure your email address is correct at checkout as I will email you any further information needed for the workshop. Please also include a contact phone number in the unlikely event that I need to cancel a workshop at short notice.

Venue: Create Space Studio & Gallery, 27 Market Place, Wirksworth, Matlock DE4 4ET
My studio shop doesn’t have a purpose built W.C. I feel I need to warn people that although did get a plumber in to do the job and the facilities are usable, they aren’t the best, so you may still want to think about spending a penny at t local independent cafés/restaurants.
