We offer both a half day TASTER COURSE, or a full day BEGINNERS COURSE -  No experience is needed for either course.


Lasting  three hours, this session will start with a short safety talk and will then move on to introduce you to the equipment, tools and methods of working in the hot glass studio.

Working in a group of three with an experienced professional glass maker, you will learn how to gather glass from the furnace, shape and form it using various traditional tools and techniques and  how to apply colour to your work.
You will experience the thrill of creating your very own pieces from this fascinating material which are yours to keep and treasure.

There will also be a demonstration and introduction to glass blowing which may whet your appetite to develop your glass making skills further.

The cost of this half day course is £99.00 per person and includes all necessary materials.


The full day Beginners Course will take students with no previous experience through the basic rudiments of handling glass to the more complex methods of shaping and blowing glass.

The morning session will teach you how to gather from the furnace, shape, marver and form the glass. It will explore the use of colour in solid objects and show you the basic techniques of paperweight making, allowing you to design and create your own paperweight.

The afternoon session will be focused on widening your skill level by introducing you to handling, shaping and blowing larger amounts of glass. Working as a team with your other classmates you will explore the various techniques and methods of blowing, forming and colouring glass in order to create a vessel by the end of the day. 

The course starts at 10am and finishes at 4pm with a one hour break for lunch.

The cost of a full day course is £185.00 per person and includes all necessary materials.

We also offer Glassblowing Course Vouchers, which make wonderfully special gifts and are valid for one year The course dates may then be arranged with us by the recipients at a date to suit.

Group and bespoke courses can also be arranged, just get in touch to have a chat about the possibilities.


Please note that your glass will have to anneal (cool at a controlled rate in a kiln) overnight and will therefore not be available to take home on the day, you can either collect your work at a later date or we will happily forward it to you at a cost of £15 paid in advance - this covers the cost of grinding and polishing together with packing and shipping your work.
