Glass appliqué experience day in the Kent Downs AONB, £90 per person
Sorry, this course has been rescheduled to April. We can’t take bookings for 7th January 2024.
Join us for a glass appliqué experience day in the Kent Downs AONB on Saturday 6th April. If you enjoy trying something new or saving the planet, this could be just the ticket. It’s a low carbon, environmentally friendly craft to lift your spirit while recycling pieces of glass left over from stained glass courses into something beautiful to treasure!
Enjoy the spring bringing to life the surrounding trees & vineyards of the Kent Downs landscape. So why not treat yourself & / or a few friends to a day learning a creative new hobby, in our studio nestled in the beautiful rural village of Chilham.
Why glass appliqué?
Glass applique is a great craft for both beginners and improvers in glass art and is very environmentally friendy, as it uses the pieces of glass left over from making stained glass panels. (That’s also why it’s our least expensive course!) Come and make something beautiful whilst doing your bit for the planet. Accurate glass cutting isn’t needed, so it’s pretty easy too!
What is glass appliqué?
Glass appliqué is also known as stained glass mosaic. The difference between this and regular mosaic is that you work with coloured glass on a background of clear glass, which lets the light shine through. The pieces of glass don’t need to fit accurately together, so it’s great for beginners and people with weak hands. If you’re a seasoned stained glass artist on the other hand, you’ll find it a brilliant way to use up your small offcuts of coloured glass. Here’s an example by Catherine Van der Woerd in the USA- not made here, but still very pretty!
What do I need to bring with me?
We supply virtually everything that you need. Just bring yourself, perhaps a friend, some closed-in shoes, your glasses (if you need them) and a smile!
Whether it’s your first time cutting glass or whether you’ve cupboards full of art glass waiting for a new use, come and join us. In a day, you can expect to make a panel of around 20 x 20cm. All materials, refreshments and lunch are included, plus free parking.
What better way to spend a spring day than on a glass appliqué experience day in our rural studio in the Kent Downs AONB!
