I noticed someone looking for a glass course in the Midlands. Well it's my wife's birthday soon and she would love to find a course and have a go at working with glass. Excuse my ignorance but I don't know what to call it. She wants to have a go at making small ornaments and such (not glass painting).
I'd love to find a course for her so she can have a go and see if she takes to it.
Can anyone help?
Many Thanks in anticipation.

I considered this course, but I don't have time to do it (or money):nopity:

Thanks for the help.

(Ooh, hi Louise, I'm in Brighouse too!)

I did a fused glass jewellery course through Kirklees College at their Batley Site (Used to be called Batley School of Art and Design, I think).
The course tutor, Jo, is really good. The course itself starts with the basics, and you get to produce lots of pieces to turn into jewellery / coasters etc. It's a 12 week course in total, and I think the next one starts after Christmas.
