Glass Fusing

Introduction to creating small pieces, learning techniques of fusing and creating colour from a variety of inclusions: metals, oxides etc.  You will go home with a variety of small designs which can then be made into small window hangings/pictures, or jewellery, or for greetings cards.


Creating a collaged tree from handmade and waste papers.  You will go home with at least 1 picture.  This will suit anyone new to craftwork, or anyone wanting to try out a new idea.........


Collage 'Landscape'

Creating at least one style of Landscape using handmade and waste papers.  A day of experimenting ..... You will go home with at least one finished picture.  This will suit anyone new to craftwork, as well as those with more experience who wish to enjoy a day creating an original piece of artwork.


Collage ' Quilt/patchwork'

This will interest those who love the different possibilities of paper, cutting, and arranging patterns inspired by imagined or traditional patchwork designs...... You will go home with one finished piece.

No experience of quilting or craft work  is needed.



Table-top Loom, weaving course.  This course will introduce you to the art of hand-weaving.  You will take home an original piece of weaving, - a wall hanging, for instance, or a piece to stitch on a cushion cover.  The course is designed for beginners, but the flexibility of this course, is that it may suit those who wish to expand their basic weaving skills.  In the near future Weaving may be offered as a 6 week evening course.  Feel free to enquire at the Gallery 0161-881 4422 or by email
