Make your own special Christmas tree decorations
Every year I was buying special decorations for each child to remember each year together. Last year we didn’t find anything which resonated with us, so we made our own special Christmas decorations out of glass. This gave me the idea to give everybody else the same opportunity, to create their own memento for themselves or for family and friends.
Create your own personalised Christmas decorations by putting names and dates on your design based on special occasions such as:
- The memory of a loved one
- Wedding days
- Special birthdays
- Babies first Christmas
- Graduation day
In this workshop, you will be shown all the materials and techniques we are going to use. For this session we will work with metal wires and foils. We will cut the foil to size, and the wire bent and hammered to fit the pattern. We will incorporate different frits (very small chips of crushed coloured glass) to enhance our Christmas decorations. We are going to use a technique called glass fusing, that means that after you have finished decorating your Christmas decorations, they are going to be fired in a kiln so that they can completely fuse together. They need to stay in the kiln for around 24 hours from firing to cooling, afterwards they can be picked up or sent by post. If you want your pieces sent by post it will be an additional £5.
You have 2 hours to complete 3 glass decorations, however, if you find yourself having time left, and your eager to make more, there are more pieces available, individually priced.
