    Items will be fused in the kiln and available for collection at a later date.

    * These are very popular courses which need to be booked and paid for in advance.

  • What do I wear? 

    We recommend you cover you feet (don't wear open toed sandals!) and tie long hair back. You will be given an apron to wear and goggles should you need them. 

    My child is not yet 8, but they're really good at art, can they participate?

    No. The studio is small and participants do work with real, sometimes very small pieces of glass. From experience, some visitors were not always been truthful about the age of their child and children as young as 3 came to the class. The studio environment is simply not suitable for this age group. 

    Can I leave my child while I go for a coffee?

    No. Although staff are teachers and DRB checked the site is not registered with Ofsted and therefore we cannot take sole responsibility of any unaccompanied child under the age of 8. If your child is aged 8 or above we have Safeguarding documents that need to be completed prior to the class. 

    Can I eat in the studio? 

    No. You will be handling small pieces of glass and we'd hate for you to eat some by mistake - just think about where it has to come out after being digested!!! You may bring in sealed water bottles or enclosed drink holders. 

    Why do you let school groups or Beavers or Rainbow groups do these sessions? 

    These children are always supervised by an adult who they know. We also can guarantee the age of the child; we know that a Year 1 pupil is between 5-6 years old and they are used to being in a classroom and shown what to do.
