About the Event
Thanks to funding from The National Lottery’s Reaching Communities fund, we are excited to share with you our creative programme of summer taster workshops, which will be running throughout August.
Immerse yourself in the wonderful world of arts and crafts by taking part in our creative and fun workshops. You will get hands on experience and support from our expert tutors who are on hand to provide you with all of the tools and knowledge you need to complete one of the taster workshops.
Exploring the wonderful world of glass is an exciting and fun opportunity for everyone and our glass taster workshop will provide you with just that. During the glass workshop you will create your very own glass coaster and learn all about the techniques of using frits and glass paints for your design. Once your glass piece has been fired in our glass kilns, it will be ready for collection.
