Junk-de-verre Glass Making Workshops
Drop-in DIY Workshop
Come by our space in Hantsport to make a one-of-a-kind-piece of your very own. 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.
Drop in during business hours to make your own piece any time. Larger groups (8+) can arrange after hours appointments as well.
Either size can be made as a coaster or suncatcher — let us know when you start.
3″ piece is $12
4″ piece is $18
We are also booking workshops for classrooms and other organized groups. Tim is a provincially certified teacher, with years of experience in the Annapolis Valley.
We 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
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.
