On Saturday we had a busy morning preparing for Heathfield School GCSE Art department glass workshop.  This will be the first of three workshops with small groups of the students, over the next few Saturdays.

The students will work on designs from their curriculum Art projects and use these as inspiration to make fused glass panels or bowls.
