Fused Glass Lantern Experience with Artist Tracey Mc Verry

Fused Glass Lantern Experience with Artist Tracey Mc Verry
Fused Glass Lantern Workshop at White Rock Glass Studio. A fully immersive, intimate day of glass making with artist Tracey Mc Verry.

Reconnect with your inner creative in this fully immersive fused glass experience at White Rock Glass Studio with professional artist Tracey Mc Verry. Create your own bespoke artwork in the form of a large, contemporary lantern .

Let your imagination take over and explore the exciting world of fused glass in a truly unique and creative space with no prior experience required, just a willingness to enjoy and be inspired.

Nestled in the rolling hills of South Armagh, Tracey welcomes visitors to participate in a fully immersive, creative experience at her 5th generation family home and glass studio.

With Tracey as your tutor and host you will explore the extraordinary medium of fused glass. Listen to Tracey’s story of how her home, her ancestors and her artistic practice of sculpture and glass are intrinsically linked and inspire each other. Watch Tracey as she takes you through this creative process, step by step, guiding you while you design your four-panel art work using colour and shape.

Learn to cut and shape glass using specialist hand tools and glass cutters, add coloured glass inclusions using glass frit, stringers and confetti and finally assemble your cold glass panels prior to loading them into the kiln in preparation for firing.

Your beautiful piece of artwork is then fired in the glass kiln at 840 degrees over an 8 hour period and cooled slowly to room temperature the following day. It is then carefully assembled into your lantern shell, ready for delivery to you five working days later. The artwork will be delivered using Royal Mail Special Delivery.

All materials, glass equipment and safety equipment are supplied for you on the day. Wear comfortable and sensible clothing with closed toe footwear.

Locally sourced refreshments and a fresh traditional home cooked lunch are included all served in the unique ‘front kitchen’ of Tracey’s ancestral home.

Cost: £185. Click here to book.
