No previous experience required. All materials supplied. Frame can be taken home afterwards for £10. Please bring your own lunch. Tea and coffee will be provided.

This class is taught by Borders based artist Inge Panneels, who also lectures at the University of Sunderland based at the National Glass Centre. The ‘Ab-Sense’ Work featured in the Mapping the Borders exhibition is inspired by the iconic Borders abbeys.
