Stained glass mosaic experience on Bank Holiday Monday- eco friendly & sustainable
Join us for a stained glass mosaic experience on Bank Holiday Monday, 27th May.
Where better to spend the long weekend than at our glass studio, nestled among vineyards in the picturesque Kent Downs national landscape (area of outstanding natural beauty).
Stained glass mosaic is a sustainable way to make environmental art from glass offcuts and makes the perfect creative experience in the beautiful village of Chilham, near Canterbury, Kent.
What does it cost?
A day’s course including all materials, lunch and refreshments costs just £90 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.
There’s more information here.
What can I make?
In a day, you can make a panel of around A5 size, with an almost unlimited number of pieces. You don’t need to be able to cut glass; if your hands aren’t strong enough, you can still make something 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 North Downs Way, a long distance footpath with stunning views, & has lots of other walking and cycling routes too.
