Susan Purser Hope, teaches glass fusion!
Learn to cut, paint and fuse glass to make up to 8 beautiful bright baubles. (The ultimate thoughtful gifts!)
During the course of the day, you will learn how to use a range of different glass elements such as coloured glass, frits, confetti, stringers and paint to make your own fused glass artwork. With Christmas in mind, create four tree decorations during the morning.
Then create a wall or window hung circular decorative 15cm diameter disc the afternoon and coasters if you have time.

All procedes go to supporting the continuing work of the Anteros Art Foundation:
We support young and newly qualified artists with exhibition spaces, promotion and with opportunities to learn to teach.
We have a free access arts library, not to mention an important historical, free to enter, Tudor urbanite’s home.
And we teach fine art skills to beginners and improvers at affordable costs.
Then there are the free lunch time concerts, the work we do with school children… etc.
Anteros is not funded by the Arts Council, local Council, or any other body which donates core funding. This allows us to keep our independence and to meet the needs of our local community flexibly. However, it does make us reliant on the generosity of local people.
The event is free entry. Further donations of artwork, are still being gratefully being received!

An exhibition of recent works by Will Teather and Anthony Asbury.
This exhibition is the first significant showing of a number of collaborative artworks by Will Teather and Anthony Asbury, alongside individual works by both artists. The collaborative artworks depict contemporary living, yet draw upon the aesthetic traditions of baroque painting and eighteenth century genre painters such as Joseph Wright of Darby. Bringing up to date Wright’s exploration of the industrial age in paintings such as An Experiment on a Bird in the Air Pump (1768), these new works draw upon digital technology and modern devices that illuminate the protagonists. Often the characters in these new paintings seem both socially connected and disconnected by the technology that surrounds them.
About the Artists
Will Teather is well-known for creating artworks that combine an unusual imagination with a mastery of traditional skills. The artist’s paintings often depict curious characters caught up in extraordinary situations.
Having trained in London at Central St Martins and Chelsea College of Art, Teather has featured in exhibitions and publications internationally, received numerous grants and scholarships and been a finalist in international art prizes. He has been awarded spells as Artist-in-Residence for venues in New York, Aberdeen and Norfolk. Work is held in public and private collections in the UK and overseas. He is an Associate Lecturer at Norwich University of the Arts.
Will Teather met Anthony Asbury when the latter attended one of the artist’s evening classes, where they struck up a friendship. Asbury was at the time rekindling his interest in drawing, following early retirement from running his Product Design and Manufacturing business. Asbury took a strong interest in Teather’s paintings, which later led to collaborative ideas being developed.
As an artist, Asbury regards himself as predominantly self taught, although he has had a long standing interest in the arts that included a friendship with East Anglian landscape painter George Roberts, who mentored him in the craft of painting with oils. In 1972 he attended Keswick Hall College of Further Education, majoring in Painting. For his special study he focused the development of “Solid and Transparent Dyed Polyester Resins as a Painting Medium”; achieving a distinction and a BEd degree.
Alongside developing these compositions with Teather, Asbury started painting in acrylics early this year. His main subject matter is narrative portraits – mostly of acquaintances, or other interesting people in their natural surroundings.
