Best Fused Glass Workshops in Kent

Welcome to the “Garden of England” – Kent, a picturesque county known for its stunning landscapes, orchards, and gardens. The title “Garden of England” reflects Kent’s rich agricultural heritage and abundant natural beauty, making it a perfect setting for artistic exploration. In addition to its lush greenery, Kent is famous for its historical sites such as Canterbury Cathedral, the iconic White Cliffs of Dover, and the enchanting Leeds Castle.

Each of these landmarks holds a unique story and adds to the charm of this diverse county. Whether you’re a seasoned artist or a beginner looking to try something new, Kent’s fused glass workshops offer a perfect blend of creativity and inspiration in this scenic region.

The Art of Fused Glass

In the art of fused glass, various glass pieces are melted together in a kiln, resulting in the creation of stunning and distinctive artworks. This flexible technique enables artists to produce a wide array of items, ranging from intricate jewellery and colourful ornaments to elegant plates and bowls.

The possibilities with fused glass are limitless – you can craft vibrant sun catchers to illuminate your windows, custom coasters for your home, or even elaborate wall art to bring a touch of refinement to any space. Whether you aim to fashion a heartfelt gift for a loved one or enhance your own décor with a personal touch, fused glass art provides a gratifying and enjoyable creative avenue.

Here in Chilham you will find a wide variety of Fused Glass Courses from small Taster classes to get your started, right up to 2 day sessions for the more experienced student.

Prices start at £119 per person and include lunch and refreshments. Included in the cost is all of the materials needed and kiln firing time.

On the weekly classes, students pay for their own glass, while on the Saturday glass fusing experience the cost of the glass is included for a coloured item up to 17 x 17cm (or several smaller things) plus float (window) glass for your first (practise) item. If you want to make something bigger, you can just pay for the extra materials.

Yes, but not on the day. Your glass will be fused after your course & will be in the kiln for at least 24 hours. After fusing, you can come & collect it or it can be posted to you (this typically costs around £9 depending on its size & weight- we pack it well to ensure that it arrives in the right number of pieces!).
