Bauble Making Workshop | Christmas Week 5

December 11 - December 15

£55.00

Create Your Own Bauble

Embrace A Time-Honoured Tradition

Indulge in the annual tradition of glassmaking at Teign Valley Glass Studio, and infuse your festive season with a touch of magic by crafting your very own handmade bauble. This special workshop offers the perfect opportunity to create cherished memories with loved ones as you each take a turn at the craft or fashion unique presents, even for the most difficult-to-shop-for individuals.

But the experience is more than just creating a beautiful bauble; it’s a voyage into the age-old tradition of glass blowing. You’ll discover the artistry and skill required to create such breathtaking works of art. The bauble-making course also offers the opportunity to craft a unique present, made with love and sure to be treasured for years to come.

 

🔥 Why This Workshop is Special

The workshop’s main attraction is the chance to craft your own stunning bauble that sparkles and catches the light in mesmerising ways. Add your choices of frit (the colour part) into the molten clear glass to bring your creation to life, and shape it on the end of a punt (metal rod). Breathe down through the tube and watch as the control of air shapes your bauble into a sphere.

As you continue shaping and refining your masterpiece, add the finishing touch by gently curving an extra piece of molten glass on top, around to create a loop. This loop will elegantly hang your creation on your Christmas tree.

After the workshop, your creation will require 2-3 days to cool down in the annealer. You have the option of home delivery* or collecting it at your convenience.

 

🥽 Safety Attire Quick Guide

Closed-Toe Shoes: Protect your feet with sturdy footwear. Sandals or open-toed shoes are a no-go.
Natural Fibre Clothing: Opt for cotton attire, which is less flammable than synthetics, for your safety and comfort.
Protective Clothing: Protective Clothing: Wear long pants like jeans for leg protection. Avoid flowy attire, especially skirts. A fitted, long-sleeved t-shirt is best for heat protection, but short sleeves are okay too.
Hair Ties: Long hair should be tied back to avoid interference with your face or the flames.
Minimal Jewellery: Remove necklaces, bracelets and rings that could snag or conduct heat.
Safety Glasses: Provided by us, these are essential to shield your eyes from flying glass and bright lights.
Adhering to these guidelines will ensure you dress appropriately for a safe and enjoyable glass crafting experience. Let’s create something beautiful safely!

 

✅ Booking Tips

When Is Best? Choose your date and time slot wisely. Make sure it’s a day that you can attend, as once the course is locked in, we’ll be planning for your arrival ahead of schedule.
Buying A Ticket: You need to buy one ticket to cover one person in this workshop. Children are permitted 12+ if accompanied by a non-paying adult. Once you have selected your tickets, scroll down and click the ‘Get Tickets‘ button to add to your cart.
Participation Options: This workshop maintains a 1:1 participant-to-bench ratio. If you wish to participate alongside someone, you have two options that best suits your preferences:
i) Book two tickets simultaneously (both in the same time slot). This allows both of you to work on separate benches during the same time slot.
ii) Book two tickets for consecutive time slots. With this option, you share one bench, allowing one person to observe and capture photos or videos of the other before switching roles.
Arrival Time: Aim to arrive a little earlier than your booked slot to ensure a relaxed start to your glass-making experience.
Travel Plans: If travelling from afar, check local transport or plan your driving route. There is plenty of free parking on site.
Questions? Our T&C’s have got answers, especially about our refund policy. A heads-up: we cannot process movements or refunds if your session is within the next seven days at the time of request. Thanks for understanding!

*Delivery can be arranged at a cost of £8.50 per shipping.
