We take great pride in the quality of our catering which always includes homemade bread and cake. Homemade soup, quiche or pasta dishes are usual but we are happy to cater for particular requirements on request.
NOTE FROM SHEILA: 10 years as a college lecturer and a long career as a graphic designer hopefully give me the aesthetic judgement to create appealing objects. Now confident with glass I am passing on my knowledge to others through workshops.
My style of teaching is adaptable and accommodating and I will respond to the needs of the group for this workshop. I am constantly experimenting with materials and techniques and will happily encourage participants to explore their own creative scope.
Students will use a variety of materials and techniques to produce items of their choice which may include jewellery, coasters, hanging wall panels. Clear and coloured glass materials will be available for experimentation and the processes involved in fusing and laminating will be explained and demonstrated.
All items will have to be fired after the workshop but pieces may collected or dispatched by arrangement.
The Tutor for this course is Burlingham Hall owner, Sheila Gates
I began working with glass 7 years ago having been initially inspired by an Art Teacher friend and I was subsequently taught by Barbara Coulam at her workshop in Derbyshire. I am experimenting all the time and my work is becoming larger and more complex. My most recent range of work and some commissioned items are featured in more detail on the Burlingham Glass website.
All the work shown below and right were done by one day workshop students.
