Workshops

I am very excited because we are nearing the end of a project to build me a new workshop. I will be moving out of my half shed (husband has the other half) into a beautiful shed fitted out just for me, including (drum roll) a glass kiln. Some of hyou will know that I have been fusing glass in a microwave kiln for some time but I discovered that there are plug in kilns – ie through a 13amp plug to the mains – which give a much more controlled approach to fusing glass. I will have enough space to fire glass up to 30cm square which is a bit biger than the 6cm I could do before.  I will be continuing to make stained glass products but will also be exploring the things i can do with my kiln. I am sure I will be posting some creations later.

Also, my new workshop enables me to host workshops for up to three guests which is very exciting too. I will be holding workshops for stained glass, mosaic stepping stones and simple fused glass. If you’d like to book a glass taster session please email me at cosycreativecrafts@hotmail.com.

Hi My name is Jane and I live in North Oxfordshire, UK. I started making greetings cards and jewellery, progressed to working with stained glass, played with a microwave kiln for small fused glass items and then went all the way with a studio and kiln. I then explored lampworking and enjoy playing with hot glass too.. I have also been a knitter and crochet(ter?) since childhood. I enjoy playing with colour - the brighter the better in my opinion. I attend craft fairs each year in the local area as my glass is attractive face to face. I also run workshops in my garden studio and love to share my skills with others.
