Introduction to Fused Glass – Learn Afloat



Join Glass Artist Kathryn Webley on her narrowboat ‘the pod floating studio’ for a one-day course ‘An Introduction to Fused Glass’. ‘The pod’ is a purpose built art workshop moored at Worksop on the Chesterfield Canal.
The course is for beginners, so no prior experience is required. The pod is a compact vessel, so group sizes are very small; a maximum of three participants.
Arrival is 9.30am for a 10am start with the course running until 4pm, with a break for lunch.

Please contact us to buy a voucher for a course place as a gift.
