Glass, Handmade Soap
About the Artist
Emma is a science teacher turned maker who delights in creating colourful work in fused and lampworked glass. Emma also dabbles in handmade soap. Emma has a small gallery area in the studio where you can see some new work. During the week, we will offer drop-in workshops where you can make something from fused glass.
Since learning how to make soap in 2009 Emma has been fascinated with the chemical processes involved and the design possibilities they afford. Learning glass fusing in 2014 was an extension to this process of design influenced by chemical and physical constraints.
Texture and colour interactions are common themes in her work. Emma's influences include the natural world and the texture found within. In the last year, Emma has extended her repertoire to include lampworked glass.
Emma runs regular lessons both in soap and glass from her workshop in Causewayhead, Stirling. Emma will be running workshops throughout the week so come along and create something beautiful.
DirectionsHazelrock House is located on Causewayhead Road not far from the rugby club. We are on the left if coming from town and you can pull into the driveway to park. Look out for the bunting.
Fused Glass Suncatcher or Tealight Holder
Visitors can join a workshop on a drop-in basis every day we are open during the week.
You'll have a choice to make either a suncatcher or a tealight holder from fused glass. You can use a variety of glass types and pre-cut pieces to make something beautiful.
The workshops will cost £15 and you'll need to come back and pick up your work a few days later after it has been fired in the kiln. Posting your work is possible for a small fee.
You don't need to have any artistic ability for this class. Everyone including children from 5 years and up can take part.
