Creative Glass Club at Vitreus Art
Work on your own projects in our studio

"Incredibly informative and inspiring" - class attendee

Our Creative Glass Club Sessions are a great way to develop your own ideas in glass before investing in tools and creating a working space of your own.

If you've done some stained glass or fusing before and you'd like to gain more experience, work on your own designs, or just want to be creative in a supportive environment, our Creative Glass Club is for you!

We invite you to join our community of glass crafters to work on your projects in our studio, use our tools and materials (although you can always bring your own) and get making!

Creative Glass Club is held on the last Thursday of every month (excluding August) in three sessions - AM 10am, to 1pm; PM 2pm to 5pm; Evening 6pm to 9pm; your membership covers one of these at £45 per month or two at £80 per month.


For just £45 per session via the monthly Subscription you'll have access to a workbench and some storage space, our stained glass or glass fusing tools, lightbox, layout boards and all the facilities we use ourselves, plus our expertise!
We'll even include a single firing in our kiln for glass fusers.

You are encouraged to bring your own materials (and we can advise where to get these from) - just bring them along and we'll make sure they're kept separate from our own.

These Glass Club sessions are suitable for artists with some experience in the chosen artform; if you're a beginner we ask that you start with one of our fully tutored classes in stained glass or glass fusing.

A key difference between Glass Club and our Project days programme is that tuition is on offer during Glass Club. We ask that attendees have attended at least one beginner's course in their discipline so that you'll know how to safely use tools, handle glass and work in proximity to others.
When you find that additional knowledge is needed to create your project we'll be on hand to advise and support.

We're always happy to contribute specialist expertise when needed - we want your project to be the best it can be!

Students have created large stained glass windows for their homes, fused glass panels, lamps, glass art for indoors, 3d stained glass objects, glass garden sculptures and much more in our studio.

Our Creative Glass Club sessions are ideal if:

  • You have a project of your own design you'd like to make
  • You've done some stained glass or glass fusing and want to practice your skills
  • You'd like to do more art but don't have a suitable workspace
  • You're considering investing in glass work tools but want to make sure you'll get the best use of them
