Mark Payton began his glass career in 1989 and has been professionally Flameworking (Glass made by Torch) and designing glass sculpture now for 29yrs.
He makes items from small to Largest Glass Installations.
The public has always enjoyed watching Mark create his work, but watching doesn’t quite give the viewer an full appreciation of how the glass feels to form, the timing and speed, and the fluidity needed to create even the simplest of items.
So! Mark decided to create a hands on activity glass workshop. People now can use his workshop using the same tools and space that he and his assistants use to make Glassworks everyday.
Private Glass Classes are also offered and taught by Mark. These are 1 and 2 day classes. (See class list…)
Essentially we are a Private Glass Art Studio that is Open to the Public to give you an opportunity to “Get Hands On”.
