Qué harás

You'll make an object in kiln-fused glass. (2-3 hrs, limit 2 adults). Be inspired by our range of colours and glitters, then enjoy turning your choice into a unique piece to take home!

On the premises next to our AirBnB accommodation is the glass workshop. We maintain a Covid safe environment respecting distancing, cleaning schedules and mask wearing. After orientation and safety briefing we hand over your starter pack of goodies including PPE.

We explain the range of glass techniques, what happens to glass in the kiln, cutting and cold working. Making a 10cm square coaster is a good way to get started, but you might want to make a colourful panel to hang on the wall or a small piece of sparkly jewellery. We'll develop your cutting skills and help your chosen design become a reality.

If you already know your way around kiln-formed glass, why not create a slumped dish, or move onto more advanced techniques? If engraving is more your thing, produce your choice of design using our sandblaster.

We started exploring fused glass ten years ago, and last year converted the garage into a design studio and workshop, complete with medium sized kiln, design and cutting equipment, four work stations and basic glass supplies.
Having piloted with friends, we started offering taster sessions to give basic training and support. We love sharing our workshop space and helping with design and creation.
Gavin did courses with glass artists at The National Glass Centre Sunderland, Warm Glass UK, Pearsons in Liverpool and Cumbria Crystal.
We also assist converting basic designs and lettering into engraved glass objects. We are moving on - exploring more complex glass creations: woven, crackle, dropouts, pattern bars.

Donde estarás

We're in a little village on the moors 8 miles from Consett. The workshop is next to the self contained AirBnB accommodation; and both are just across the parking area from our house.

What can we say? Everything about this experience was fantastic. From the first communication to the delivery of the things we made, we cannot fault Gavin. Communication was exceptional. He asked key questions before our arrival so that the experience was tailored perfectly to us. Our few hours with Gavin felt more like we were visiting an old friend who wanted to give us the best time whilst we were there. His knowledge was second to none, and his help and guidance throughout the experience was perfect. He knew when to step back and let our kids know what to work through and when to step in. Lads at 13 and 16 years old aren't always the easiest to engage, but Gavin was superb with them, and they thoroughly enjoyed the day. Gavin provided a wonderful light lunch for us all and made us feel like extended family. We truly didn't want the experience to end. We cannot recommend Gavin and this experience highly enough - a truly fantastic day.

I booked this as a surprise for my husband during our long holiday in England. Gavin is an excellent and patient teacher. Everything was highly customized to our experience level and interests. We stayed longer than we expected (our own fault) but Gavin was very gracious. We are looking forward to seeing how our creations turn out! They will be wonderful reminders of our time here.

I made two pendants with Gavin’s help. It was really interesting and Gavin gave me his full attention and use of his studio. Highly recommended.

We had a great experience day with Gavin. We received a warm and friendly welcome, a great overview of what to expect and induction into all things glass. Gavin was generous with both his knowledge and time. We had a fun and enjoyable few hours!

We thought we'd give this glass making experience a try as we were staying nearby and had never done anything similar before. We didn't know what to expect at all so Gavin spent some extra time showing us around his workshop, with lots of examples of what people had made in the past. We decided on a coaster design that took a bit longer than we expected to finish but Gavin was more than happy for us to overstay our planned finish time. He didn't rush us at all and we really enjoyed everything about the experience. He even let us come back the next day to open the Kiln, see our finished product and take it home (which was another hour or so of his time that he happily let us have for free!) We are thrilled with our new glass coasters and would definitely recommend this experience to anyone!
