Events at Dalby Forest - The Courtyard, Dalby Forest

Ever fancied yourself as quite the dab hand at crafts?

This November, Dalby is hosting our first ever glass fusing workshop for those creative minded and curious alike!

Each class will begin with an introduction to the basics of glass fusing, explaining how the kiln is used to create a variety of different effects.

Students will have the opportunity to use the glassmaker’s specialist tools to mark, score and break glass in a controlled way.

Students will then design and make their own glass panel landscape with clear and coloured fusible sheet glass, and other compatible glass products to produce a wintery scene or to create their own colourful fused glass decorations.

The course is led by artist David Teece, an established maker and seller of specialised glass art from the heart of Yorkshire. Inspired by light, colour and with a hint of the dramatic, David creates decorative items in fused and stained glass. 

A graduate in Art and Design and a fully qualified teacher, David works from the Garden Studio in the heart of Masham. The studio houses three kilns and all the other necessary equipment, where David creates his own art works for sale in local outlets and completes individual commissions for private clients. 

David also offers individual and small group tutorials in fused and stained glass for beginners and intermediates and the more specialised use of the vitrigraph kiln for more established glass artists. 

Members get 10% discount - please speak to our team for details.

The sessions are running on 18 November with 2 sessions during the day. The first session starts at 10am - 1pm, and the afternoon session starts at 2pm - 5pm.

Tickets are £50 each and include all materials and your finished product, which will be taken away to David's workshop to dry in the kiln before being returned.
