Children’s Glass Mosaic Workshop

Date: 11th April 2024
Time: 9:30 am
Location: Winterbourne Medieval Barn
Family | Workshops

Join local glass artist, Rachael Durkan from The Glass Cabin at 9:30am or 11:30am for one of her popular fused glass workshops, but this one is specifically for our younger crafters!

Create a mosaic style fused glass sun catcher using a variety of pre-cut glass and accessories in array of beautiful colours.
There are plenty of templates to choose from or you can design your own panel. Make a 10cm square or egg shaped sun catcher. 
The lovely thing about making a glass panel as a child is that your creation will last forever, glass does not deteriorate or lose its beautiful colour and shine!

Suitable for complete beginners as well as those who’ve caught the fused glass bug! Ages 8years +
Please note: under 18s must remained accompanied on The Barn site at all times.

The participant will have an hour and a half to create their masterpiece. Rachael will have lots of ideas to inspire them and is on hand with advice throughout the workshop.

PLEASE NOTE – Rachael will take the finished piece away to be fused in her kiln. It will be available for collection from The Barn or Rachael directly a couple of weeks after the workshop.

For safety reasons, please do not wear open toe shoes such as sandals or flip flops. Also a little reminder for people who wear glasses…. due to close up work, you may wish to bring along your spectacles!

Parking for this event is at the Barn, BS36 1SE. 

Tea, coffee & squash will be provided during the introduction and is included in the ticket price. Due to the nature of working with glass refreshments will not be permitted during the actual workshop.

The primary purpose of this event is to raise money for WMBT and to support conservation, management, maintenance and improvement of the WMBT site.
