Year 6 Cricklade Award: Glass Coaster Making Workshop

As part of the Year 6 Cricklade Award enrichment programme, the children were delighted to attend a glass workshop.

The session was run by locally renowned glass maker Debbie, from Glass by Debbie. Debbie took some time to explain the process of how the coasters are made and how they needed to be fired overnight in a kiln. The children then got to work on designing their very own coasters, with a choice of colour and pattern options. The children worked hard thinking about patterns, in order to produce bespoke, personalised pieces.

Mrs Bunn said: “We were delighted with how they turned out and think they look amazing!”

A Year 6 pupil added: “I really enjoyed picking the colours and making a pattern.”
