Safety goggles are provided and recommended
Please wear shoes with closed toes if you value your feet
Family Friendly sessions or private parties are best for children; young people aged over 13 are welcome at all sessions.
LOCATION and PARKING
All workshops are at 4 Markfield Road Ratby LE60LP unless stated otherwise (see map)
There is usually space on the drive for approximately four cars. If there is space for your car, please park on the drive, otherwise there will be space in the layby further up Markfield Road on the left. Please do not park in front of our neighbours house or our house as we are opposite a bus stop, near a junction and a shop, and we don’t want to annoy our neighbours! You will be asked to move your car if it is parked on the road.
We run sessions at various times during the week. Gates open 10 minutes before your start time, and, even though we are having as lovely time as you, we finish the session promptly. The contact time with customers is a fraction of our job, and we work for hours either side. Please help us by keeping to the times allocated.
We have three very friendly dogs that are only allowed out once all attendees are in the workshop. Please keep the gates closed, and if you pop out of the workshop ask us to shut the dogs away if you don't want to meet them.
REFRESHMENTS & AMENITIES
Drinks are included, please bring lunch (if you wish) to longer sessions.
We do have a visitors toilet, in fact most people recommend a visit to the smallest room as it has more glass examples in it!
LARGER ITEMS & SPECIAL REQUESTS
If you would like to work with a piece of glass of dimensions greater than 45cm this needs to be requested a few days before your session so we can prepare it and you will need to book (and pay for) a double space please.
CANCELLATIONS & TRANSFERS
As each customer typically represents one eighth of our income for that session, if you need to cancel your place, refunds will be given only if we are able to replace you so please do give as much notice as possible.
An admin fee of £5 applies to all refunds and transfers.
INSPIRATION & COPYWRITE
If you wish to search for ideas, please bear in mind that most fused glass on Pinterest has been made by experienced people. We prefer for you to use our Facebook page or the gallery on this website for inspiration. We are happy for you to copy our work and that of customers. If you do not want your work to be copied by others, we will respect your wishes on the condition that you can show your work is an original idea.
Is usually around a week/10 days. You will be asked to leave a phone number so we can contact you.
