I know it feels very wintry outside at the moment and that most of the country has seen a beautiful blanket of snow recently (sadly only the lightest sprinkle in Dorset), but spring and brighter days are just around the corner.

I thought it would be helpful to give you some spring dates for your diary if you are thinking of making or gifting one of my glass kits for Mother’s Day or Easter. We have kits for flowers, hearts, birds and Easter egg decorations, in a gorgeous selection of colours.

While I'm excited to help some celebrate Mother's Day, I know that this can also be a complicated day for many. If that’s you, for whatever reason, I wanted to give you a heads up that you might like to ignore some of my posts and emails for a little while. I’ll be sharing lots of spring gorgeousness and Easter treats after the 15th March. X

Mother’s Day – 14th March

The make at home fused glass kits are lovely thoughtful gifts for Mother’s Day so you mum / Grandma / special person can be treated to some calm creative down time. It’s also a lovely idea for grown up children to organise a Mother’s Day creative Zoom afternoon making the kits from your own homes. It’s such a lovely way to connect and spend some time together. Please order your kit before 8th March.

Alternatively, you can enjoy making the glass decorations from a kit and gift the finished glass creations for a lovely handmade Mother’s Day present. The fired and finished glass decorations can be returned to you to give or sent direct to your Mum, with a Mother’s Day gift message. Please have your glass creations returned to Wendy to be fired before 3rd March.

Easter – 4th April

Making the fused glass kits is a lovely creative Easter holiday activity for your own household or gifted to family and friends (recommended for supervised children over 10y), Please order your kit before 29th March.

Alternatively, you can make your Easter decorations from the kit and have it fired and returned so you can decorate your home for Easter. The Easter Eggs and Birds look so pretty hung from a blossom branch, in a window or attached to an Easter wreath. Please have your glass creations returned to Wendy to be fired before 22nd March.

Stay safe and Happy Making

Glass making workshops in Dorset

2021 workshop dates will be announced in spring 2021 if covid restrictions allow. 

Wendy's fused glass making classes and workshops are fun and relaxed, no glass making experience is needed. You will choose from a variety of fused glass making materials and techniques to create your own glass designs to make decorations, bunting, flowers or tea light holders.

Wendy's studio is walking distance from the stunning Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door so can combine the workshop with lunch out and a coastal walk.
