*** FULLY BOOKED *** Please contact us for waiting list


Event category: Children's Workshop

Price: £12 per child, including all materials and kiln firing
Location: The Stained Glass Museum
The session leader will explain the principles and theory of glass cutting, fusing and firing, explaining the various terms and stages used in fusing glass. The techniques you will be introduced to will include fusing clear and coloured glass using fritt, confetti, stringers and noodles, with special emphasis on the construction of designs. Young people will get to work on their design and make a 10cm x10cm glass art . The session leader will provide examples of the different techniques, processes, fittings and results for students to handle and examine, but the emphasis of the workshop will remain on the creative designs that the young people can achieve by themselves, ensuring that everyone will have a rewarding time.

Your glass will need to be kiln-fired after the workshop is finished. This process takes 24 hours and will usually takes place on the following day because someone needs to be on the premises during firing. Once your fused artwork has been kiln-fired and cooled, we will contact you to let you know it is ready for collection.

All young people must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the workshop. The workshop is suitable for children 7+

Local art tutor and artist Laura Pearson-Clark will guide you through how to beat the block of the blank page. You’ll gain confidence in your mark-making on acrylic paper. Laura will introduce a range of techniques with different media including acrylics, gouache, graphite and acrylic pens.

The workshop includes time to explore and take inspiration from the stunning Stained Glass Museum collection plus the famous Ely Cathedral itself. Laura will support you in building up a harmonious composition to achieve a final piece of art that reveals your own style that you can be proud of.

What to bring: the Cathedral can be cold, so do bring warm clothing and an overall as acrylic paint does not wash off clothes when dry!
