Tessa also gives workshops in her studio by appointment, for up to six people to learn how to make their own glass pieces.

Previous workshops

On Saturday 9th November 2013, from 11:30am-1:30pm, Tessa gave a fused glass workshop using pre-cut glass for people to make their own A5 piece for hanging in a window or stand.

On Saturday 22nd June 2013, Tessa gave a fused glass workshop (including lunch) as part of Love Architecture Fest, followed at 3pm by a demonstration of Indian Classical Dance by her daughter Fabrizia, ending with afternoon tea and cakes in The Yurt. See Page 2 of this flyer for more details.

In 2008, she taught a workshop for sixth-form students on how to fuse glass. They were able to see the design of a window in progress for Danesbury Home, for which The Herts Open Studio Community Project have kindly donated money.

In November 2009, people from the Hornbeams Adult Day Centre came and created fused glass works.
