Treat yourself to a unique experience. Work with a flame at several thousand degrees Celsius and in a few hours produce a memento of your day that you’ll treasure forever. FoxGlass offer you a chance to make your very own bauble, spinning top or pendant .You’ll be fully assisted right along the way, so you can be sure you’ll want to take your creation home and show it to your friends. We also offer more focused skilled based sessions with people who have more experience of flameworking.
Your course will take place in an enviroment with a proud tradition of flame and artisanship. FoxGlass are based in a former blacksmiths workshop. You'll be visiting us in an unspoilt rural location, the tiny Welsh border hamlet of Llangunllo.
Come on your own, or bring a couple of friends. The FoxGlass studio will accommodate up to three people and sharing the experience will give you something to remember and talk about for a long time to come. Better yet, if you split the costs, you’ll make this already great value opportunity even more affordable.
