Welcome To Yellow Dog Glass
Welcome to Yellow Dog Glass Workshops. Our teaching workshop and retail studio is situated at Barley Wood Walled Garden in Wrington, near Bristol. I use Bullseye fusing glass and Sandberg dichroic glass. I use many diverse techniques to create my own glass art. Casting, fusing, slumping, screen printing, texturing, weaving, sand blasting, gilding,etching etc. I also have a Vitrigraph kiln for making my own cane and murrini to be used in my work. There is a wide variety of finished glass pieces to see and buy in my studio, but I also welcome the opportunity to make commision pieces. If you are looking for a unique piece of glass, kitchen cabinet window, splashbacks or tiles, do contact me. If you feel creative, you can have a hand in the design and actual making of the piece, which will then be a collaboration between you, me and the kiln. The kiln always has a hand in there! I have been lucky enough to work with all of the following International and UK glass artists:- Silvia Levenson, Rudi Gritsch, Bob Leatherbarrow, Tanya Veit, Miriam di Fiore, Jeremy Lepisto, Alison Lowry, Catherine Newell, Amanda Simmons, Nathan Sandberg and Mikyoung Yung.
Yellow Dog Workshops recently became a stockist of Annie Sloan chalk paint and we are running the first paint techniques class in early 2015. Our opening hours at the Workshop are 12 to 5 Wednesday to Sunday. We also have the award winning Ethicurean restaurant here on site - stunning food and drinks. If you would like to combine a visit to the Ethicurean with a class, please check availability on 01934 863713. Call me directly on 07970 265433 if you need any further information. We have the Adjustabail range here for you to look at - save postage by collecting them from the studio.
Dichroic Glass Jewellery
I have been making fused glass since 2000, and have seen the popularity of dichroic fused glass jewellery increase hugely. Many people will be familiar with its sparkle and unique ability to change colour as the light angle alters. There is always a good selection of my handmade glass jewellery in the studio to choose from or if you would like to make some yourself, why not get together with a group of friends and come and make some in the studio on a bespoke workshop day? There is no limit to the number of different designs and colour variations that can be produced. No other type of glass catches the light and exhibits colour change in such a dramatic way as dichroic glass.
