I am offering an advanced session to learn the process of creating a coloured borosilicate glass pendant art work. This is a workshop session for maximum 3 people and lasts 3 to 3.5 hours with a few breaks. During the session each participant makes minimum two ornaments and often more.. I teach how to blow a glass bubble into a head shape and add a face and hair with coloured glass rod. Towards the end of the session I will create a several demo pieces to show tricks and techniques. The participant will get to keep the demo pieces as well. Please note the pieces made need to be annealed in the kiln for 6 hours after the session end so they will not be ready to take home. I will post them safely for a small postage fee or they can be picked up. I also issue a little self made named certificate as a memory. Not suitable for children under 10 years of age. Under 18's need to be with an adult.

I am a glass artist with a small workshop based on the Weaver Industrial Estate in Garston, Liverpool, UK. I play with glass in all variations and love sharing the fascination for the material itself. 'Glass comes to life when light shines through it' I offer courses, presentations, talks about glass as well as memorial glass art.
The glass workshop is based in South Liverpool on the Weaver Industrial Estate in Garston L19 8JA. It is on the banks of the river Mersey.
Please make sure long hair is tied back and you wear warm suitable clothing preferably made of natural fibres as well as good footwear.
Please call me on 07870738399 if you cannot find my glass workshop on the industrial site. If you are using public transport I can offer to pick you and your group up or drop you off in my car from the next train station Liverpool South Parkway for a small fee.
