Junk-de-verre Glass Making Workshops

Make your own fused glass art
DROP IN ANYTIME–
No appointment needed

Come by our space in Hantsport to make a one-of-a-kind-piece of your very own.  Our storefront “classroom” is always ready for you to drop in and make something fun. Choose any glass you’d like from our huge piles of coloured glass, lay it on a blank glass tile, and we’ll fire it in our kilns and have it ready within about a week.

No appointments are needed for families or small groups.  Larger groups (10+) can be accommodated in our large back room.

Either size can be made as a coaster or suncatcher — let us know when you start.

We are also have a large space for workshops with students, seniors, and other organized groups.  Tim is a provincially certified teacher, with years of experience in the Annapolis Valley.

workshop1We provide a quick lesson in fused glass, how to work with our glass safely, and the opportunity for everyone to make a piece of glass of their own, using a huge variety of colours and shapes to make whatever you can imagine.  It’s easy — our scrap “Junk-de-Verre” glass is prepared to remove points and sharp edges.

Choose the glass you like, and glue it in place with a tiny bit of white glue.  When it’s complete, the glass has to be taken back to our workshop to be fused.  The finished pieces are ready within about a week.

Suncatchers have a ring fired in the corner for hanging, or we can turn your piece into a coaster, and put 4 small silicon bumpers on the bottom.

a 3″ piece is $12 per person
a 4″ piece is $18 per person
(HST included)

NOTE: We don’t recommend hanging your finished piece from a suction cup in a window — these almost always fail, and there’s no way to repair a broken piece.  We suggest fishing line or thread hanging from a nail, thumbtack, or eyehook.
