Fused Glass Workshops

Dalegate Market, Burnham Deepdale

At Driftwood Glass Studio we offer a range of courses for both children and adults. So whether you want to dabble in learning the techniques or throw yourself entirely in a day of class cutting.

We offer a range of courses Monday to Saturday throughout the year.
Children's Workshops are available to those under 11. We provide a square glass template, upon which Glass paints, and crushed glass can be used to colour & decorate any design. All work is then fired and can be slumped into a 10cm bowl, or remain as a 10cm square, to hang in a window, or use as a coaster. Children's Workshops on average take an hour, however there is no time limits, all work is fired and ready for collect within two days. Work can be posted at an additional charge. The cost of this course is £25 per participant.
Taster workshops are recommended for those who would like an insight into the processes and techniques of Glass fusing. It is ideal for those who have not had any experience with working with Glass before. Sessions begin with learning glass cutting techniques, until you're comfortable with our glass tools, we then take the time to discuss design ideas and outcomes with you. On this course you can make a 10cm bowl, or remain as a 10cm square, to hang in a window, or use as a coaster. The time scale of your workshop may vary depending on your design, however there is no time limits, all work is fired and ready for collect within two days. Work can be posted at an additional charge. the price of this course is £40 per participant .

Directions

On the A149 coast road, approximately half way between Hunstanton and Wells-next-the-Sea, on the beautiful north Norfolk coast

Coastliner Bus Service
The Coastliner Bus Service 36 (used to be called Coasthopper) stops at Dalegate Market and is a brilliant service, running approximately every 1/2 an hour during the Summer and every hour during the Winter. The service runs both East and West along the North Norfolk Coast, stopping in most villages including King's Lynn, Hunstanton, Burnham Market, Wells-next-the-Sea and Fakenham. More information on the service can be found at www.lynxbus.co.uk

Norfolk Coast Path
The Norfolk Coast Path heads both East and West along the North Norfolk Coast and can be accessed down the lane opposite Dalegate Market. The path offers wonderful walking along sea walls, across boardwalks and beaches. You can link up with the Coasthopper at many points along the path. More information on the path can be found at www.nationaltrail.co.uk

Cycling
Most of the A149 coast road is ok to cycle and there are lots of quiet country lanes inland. From the East (Burnham Market direction), the easiest route is over Whiteway Road. From the West (Docking & King's Lynn direction), the easiest route is down Dalegate Lane. National Cycle Route No1 passes a couple of miles inland. Remember you can hire bikes from Deepdale Bike Hire.

Coaches
Coach parties are welcome at Dalegate Market, although we would highly recommend booking in advance if you want to eat at Deepdale Cafe, as it can be busy throughout the year. There is good parking for coaches in the layby opposite Dalegate Market. Many coach parties combine a visit to Dalegate Market with St Mary's Church on the opposite side of the coast road and the National Trust owned Brancaster Staithe Harbour. Please see the Group Visits page.

Trains
The nearest train station is King's Lynn, which has direct trains from Cambridge and London King's Cross. By changing at Ely and Cambridge you can also catch trains from Stansted Airport, Peterborough and further afield. There is also a station at Sheringham, which has trains to Norwich. The Coasthopper bus service connects with trains at both King's Lynn and Sheringham. Although there are occasional restrictions, you can normally bring your bike on the train.
Driving
Naturally we'd encourage you to visit by bus, walking or cycling, but car drivers are very welcome too. We offer free car parking and we're one of the few fuel stations (petrol and diesel) along the coast. We're approximately half way between Hunstanton and Wells-next-the-Sea on A149 coast road.
