Cone hosts 'have-a-go' craft sessions

ARTY adults and children can have a go at making their own Christmas gifts at Wordsley’s Red House Glass Cone this weekend.

Tenants including a ceramicist, clockmaker, artist and picture framer, glass engraver, jeweller, glass lampworker and a fused glass artist – who together make up the made@thecone collective – will be running festive themed drop-in workshops at the cone in Camp Hill this Saturday (November 3) from 10am to 4pm.

People can try out glass engraving, glass beadmaking, jewellery making, painting, throwing a pot, glass fusing and wood turning.

Councillor Tracy Wood, Dudley’s cabinet member for environment and culture, said: “The made@the cone collective are a really talented group of people and these ‘have-a-go days’ give pople the chance to try their hand at a new skill.

“Visitors to this Christmas themed day should walk away with some unique handmade gifts for family and friends.”

The made@the cone collective comprises: potter and ceramicist Sarah Cannings, glass lampworker Sarah Jones, fused glass artist Jane Ellis, clockmaker Stuart Caldicott, jeweller by Rebecca Handy, glass artist Charlotte Hughes-Martin and artist and framer Sean Counley.

The ‘have-a-go day’ is complemented by the annual made@the cone exhibition which – running until November 18 - showcases original, handcrafted designs by the resident artists.

Admission to the cone is free. Workshop prices start from £5 each. Call 01384 812750 or visit www.dudley.gov.uk/museums for more details.
