Martin McAssey Glass
One Day Workshops

Scrap glass mosaic workshop.

An introduction to Scrap Glass Mosaicking.
"Me and my friend did this course, and had such a wonderful time. Everything you need is provided, the tutor - Kate, was friendly, welcoming and made sure everyone knew what they were doing and helped us get all of our pieces finished. The workshop is next to the industrial hamlet so you can have a walk around at lunch, there is plenty of parking, cups of tea and lots of fun to be had. Well worth the money, definitely recommended to anyone with a interest in glass work or learning fun skills."
