I need to do a course over a few days. I want to learn how to make stained and fused glass. Where is the best place to do it? I am from Ireland, but I am willing to travel far for a great course.
Milly’s reply: Hello there Sue. Nice to hear you’ve got the bug badly! I’m sorry I don’t know of any courses in Ireland that I can recommend.
However, there’s several places that teach these techniques in the UK – you could try Liquid Glass in Frome for a very creative approach, there’s Warm Glass in Bristol too. They do a range of courses at different levels from beginners to masterclasses with internationally known glass artists. Very exciting! Creative Glass in Rochester, Kent do classes, as do Creative Glass Guild in Bristol. Nearer to you in Liverpool, you could try Pearsons Glass.
Hopefully that should get you started! If you try all those, you’ll be running your own classes and I’ll be coming along to learn things from you! I’d be interested to know how you get on – let me know won’t you?
