Stained glass mosaic eco friendly experience in the Kent Downs AONB

Come for a stained glass mosaic eco friendly experience in our glass studio. We’re nestled in the Kent Downs AONB. Stained glass mosaic (also called glass applique) is a beautiful and eco friendly craft and you’ll be able to take your creation home with you.

Summer will hopefully be with us at last. Whether we’ll be enjoying lunch outside, surrounded by scented David Austin roses in our wildlife garden or sheltering inside from torrential summer rain, you’ll have a great time.

Come and join us for an experience day to remember. If you work at weekends, this Friday course might be just what you’ve been looking for. Or if you’re on holiday, make the most of your Kent holiday with a day’s glass art experience.

Stained glass mosaic is a great way to make art from glass offcuts, whether for your home, your garden or as a gift. It makes something beautiful out of what would otherwise go into landfill! It also makes a perfect creative staycation too, in the beautiful village of Chilham, near Canterbury, Kent.

What does it cost?

Your day’s stained glass mosaic eco friendly experience including all materials, lunch and refreshments & costs just £95 per person. There are no single supplements either.

What’s stained glass mosaic?

Also known as glass appliqué, it’s a style of glass art that uses offcuts of stained glass that would otherwise be wasted. Instead you get to transform them into a work of art to take home and treasure. The light will be able to flood through your finished creation, painting your home with ever changing colours and patterns of light as the sun moves.

There’s more information here.

What can I make?

In a day, you can make a panel of around A5 size or something longer but slimmer, with the option of a hanging loop. You can choose from an almost unlimited number of pieces. Glass cutting is entirely optional; you can make something absolutely beautiful from our huge range of precut pieces of glass.

Is there an age limit?

Under-18s (and over 80s too!) can take part, if they’re safe handling sharp pieces of glass. Under-18s need to be accompanied by a responsible adult who’s also taking part.

Where are you and how do I get there?

We’re on the A252 in Chilham, midway between Ashford (Kent), Canterbury and Faversham. We’re a 15 minute stroll from Chilham railway station (for services between London, Canterbury & Ramsgate; change at Ashford if you’re catching the high speed train out of London). Chilham is also served by a number of buses from Ashford and Canterbury and is a short way from national cycle route 18.

If you’re coming to enjoy the area for several days, do bring your walking shoes & / or your cycle. Beautiful Chilham village is on the Pilgrims’ Way & the North Downs Way, long distance footpaths with stunning views. It has lots of other walking and cycling routes too.
