One of the most exciting things we offer is the opportunity to participate in glass fusing. Glass never fails to amaze children (and many grown-up's!) because it really is such as unique material to work with. The transformation that occurs during the firing process (when the glass goes in to our kiln) is mesmerising
Incredibly tactile and available in a whole rainbow of colours, the Honey Pot team will guide you through the process, resulting in the creation of something beautiful and unique for you to take home or to give as a gift.
Items to create include:
- stunning sun catchers
- jewellery - including cufflinks, rings and earrings
- wall panels (perfect for gifts or seasonal decorations)
- tree decorations
When working with children, we will talk through the theme of the workshop (or if it is a drop-in session, we'll help the child to choose an item to make) and we'll assist with the colour scheme. We talk about the process as we go.
There are pre-cut shapes in all of our colours, but if there is a specific shape you'd like, we can cut it for you or teach you how to cut glass safely yourself.
If you have an idea for a piece of glass art then bring it along and we can help you achieve your design or we can provide plenty of inspiration to help you create something beautiful.
This activity is recommended for children aged 10+ to 100!
(Younger children age 5+ can do this too but need to be supervised by an adult)
