Fused Glass workshop with Susan McKay
Hosted by DG Voice

Free to attend
These sessions are for Disabled people and/or people with long term physical or mental health conditions.
Join us for a fused glass workshop hosted by DG Voice and run by Dumfries-based glass artist Susan McKay. Across two 2-hour sessions you will learn easy techniques that can be used to create decorations, window hangings, tiles, and jewellery. These workshops will have a festive theme, with opportunity to make decorations or small gifts.
Fused glass making is easy to learn and a fun way to explore colour, pattern and glass in light. No prior experience necessary.
All basic materials are provided free of charge. Please note, if you choose to use more expensive glass or specialist materials, there may be a small additional charge. This can be discussed directly with Susan on the day of the workshop.
