Courses in fused glass and copperfoiling

Set on a beautiful green one acre property just 35 mins Byron Bay you can book a creative glass course staying at various lovely award winning accommodation venues nearby, enjoy the beautiful Northern Rivers and have a ball making your very own glass masterpieces!

There are several short courses available in copper-foiled window panels, design objects, sun-catchers ranging to kiln formed - fused and slumped glass (warm glass) & jewellery . Most classes are suited to complete beginners, while some can be designed for intermediate/ advanced students. Located just 6kms from the heart of Alstonville on a small acreage it is readily accessible from most Northern Rivers Locations.

If you're interested in learning about the magic of glass make contact. I offer special One on One tutoring in an Intensive 2 Day workshop covering exactly what you want to learn...or whatever length suits you.

"I was fortunate enough to attend an intensive two day workshop with Jacqueline. Being a current ceramicist i wasn't sure what to expect from using a different medium. Jacqueline, with her patience, extensive knowledge, warmth and passion for the art of glass is nothing short of amazing. Jacqueline explained the process from the beginning to end and her ability to teach in a clear and easy to understand way meant i left very equipped (and tired :-)) with all the information i required. If you have ever thought about glass, have a love of glass or considered attending a workshop with Jacqueline then i highly recommend that you do so. Absolutely amazing!"

"Working with glass is amazing! In the 'Glass Slumping Workshop' I learnt to cut, smash, grind, oxy-torch and melt glass into a masterpiece. I created so many treasures in the workshop, that I had to return to do more. Jacqueline has an amazing talent in working with both glass and people, she encouraged each student to create glass jewelry and artworks that reflected our personality. We had 4 people in our class and each of us created something unique and beautiful. Do yourself a favour and sign up for a workshop- you will LOVE it!" Karen Rantissi

"What to do when I retired? Saw a Glass Slumping course advertised. Sounds interesting. I was hooked. teacher was fantastic. Explained everything so it was easy to understand and didn't take over what the participants were making. Jacqueline King is an excellent teacher and I'm a hooked 'glassie'. I can recommend if you want to do something creative and different." Judith Woodcock
