These Glass Fusing Experiences are all outlined with photos on my website: ChrisGrahamGlass.co.uk GLASS FUSING TASTER SESSION: For up to 4 people, daily from 10a.m. - 12 noon. Beginners welcome including accompanied children 12+ years old. I will show you around my studio and give a health & safety talk before we get hands on. I will show you how to handle and cut glass safely, and you will make a light catcher with clear and coloured glass to hang in a window, or a 10cm square mini picture or coaster. If you have experience of glass fusing I may be able to show you new techniques. Your glass art will be fired in my glass fusing kiln overnight. It takes about 24 hours to heat, , fuse, anneal and cool down. You can collect your glass or arrange for it to be posted to you for an additional cost. There are lots of examples in my studio to inspire you!
I'm an experienced glass artist and tutor and run glass fusing workshops at my purpose built studio in North Yorkshire. My art degree was from the University of Sunderland in 2001 where I studied Kiln Formed Glass, Architectural/stained Glass, ceramics, painting, printmaking and life drawing. I then taught A level Fine Art, Graphic Design and Textiles to 16-18 year olds before setting up my studio to specialise in kiln formed glass. I have had solo exhibitions, take commissions and sell my work in local galleries. I'm a member of Brigantia and Northern Potters Assoc. I have experience running other art based workshops for adults and younger children e.g. in print making, painting, batik and T shirt design. The natural world, texture and pattern inform my own work and I enjoy passing on my skills and passion for Art to others of all ages

Specialist glass fusing kiln and glass cutting equipment, safety goggles, apron.
You'll have a welcome drink in my farmhouse kitchen before going into my studio. The purpose built studio, set in 20 acres of farmland and gardens, overlooks a stunning North Yorkshire landscape of fields and trees.
