Following the success of our recent Craig Mitchell Smith Poppy Masterclass, I am pleased to announce that we have secured the amazing Tina Easton for a further two courses this year.
The 3 day course takes you through the step by step process to make and assemble your own stunning fused glass poppies. Feedback from our course in June was excellent and everyone who has seen them, says the pictures don’t do them justice. Come and learn to make your own, you won’t be disappointed.
Tina has learnt the techniques for this Masterclass directly from Craig, who is pleased to grant her permission to teach the class on his behalf and with use of all his course materials.
The Poppies Masterclass is an intensive 3-day course that teaches you all of Craig Mitchell Smith’s techniques for making fused glass poppies – including handouts of Craig’s cutting diagrams, fusing schedules, adjustable slumping techniques and mounting for both wall based design and garden sculptures. Each student will have the opportunity to make 1 large red/orange coloured Poppy. Previous students have had great success in selling their sculptures, proving very popular with customers. You will also be invited to join the Poppies at Glassification private Facebook group, where you will be able to ask questions, post pics of your poppy creations and get ongoing support and advice from Tina and the other group members.
Some previous experience of fusing and cutting skills are required.
Students are invited to bring their own basic tools to the workshop – all materials required are provided.
Start time on day one – 10am

A little background about your tutor, Tina Easton.
Tina grew up in Sweden where there is a long tradition of glassmaking. She herself started working with glass 14 years ago. Much of her own work takes inspiration from her childhood growing up on the West Coast of Sweden, the World Heritage Site of Tanum, as well as the beautiful countryside around her current home in Hampshire.
The first picture in the gallery above, are Tina’s own poppies, made following Graig’s class.
