Tom Smith Studio
The Cutting Edge of Design
My courses are client based where possible, meaning that rather than wait until I have a full class of four students for specific days, I will, where possible, meet the requirements of the student. It is better when there are more students in the class as you can compare your progress, discuss how you are doing and exchange ideas, but if your circumstances are such that you will be the only student, then I will try to accomodate your needs.
A popular aspect of the course is the 'tea break' when we stop and socialise and discuss problems or future projects and students enjoy the homemade biscuits provided by my wife during these sessions, which are provided at no extra cost. Many students have formed enduring friendships on the courses and return for more courses to be with their new circle of friends.
Included is a set of professional tools in the price of the beginners course for you to keep - I do not see the point of teaching you a skill without the tools for you to cut glass and to continue in this wonderful art form.
The eight week beginners course gives you the skills to create a finished panel which will fit in to the door of an Ikea Bromby lamp, the average time to finish is six weeks, so there is no pressure to finish.
Cost for the beginners course is 1800Kr.
The two day course is designed to teach you all the above but in a more focussed manner.
This course also includes lunch and beverages on both days.
Cost for the two day course is 2000Kr.
All courses are taught in English.
Bed and Breakfast for the two day course can also be provided at extra cost.
