About Me


Christine Jeffryes

I am a Kent based artist with a home studio by the sea. I work with a range of media and techniques including paint, printmaking, photography and glass. From a background in textile design and a successful career in art and design education, my work reflects my passion for colour, texture and pattern.

The Pie Factory Margate will open its doors again from Friday 23rd April to Wednesday 28th April 2021, for an exhibition of work by five local artists - Christine Jeffryes, Tony Caroli, Wendy Jones, Karen H King and Sarah Stokes. Odyssey will feature work in varying styles, approaches and mediums including acrylic and watercolour paint, glass, resin and mixed media, all pulled together to produce a unique exhibition. Originally planned for April 2020, the exhibition now includes new pieces influenced by life experiences and permitted journeys along the beautiful Thanet coast.

The Pie Factory will open daily from 10.30am to 5.30pm, closing at 2.00pm on 28th April.

Fused Glass Experience Days


FUSED GLASS FULL AND HALF DAY EXPERIENCES

I am planning to take new bookings for fused glass experiences  from 1st July 2021.  

Explore fused glass making techniques in a small, relaxed, well equipped home studio setting in Broadstairs Kent.
Working with a maximum of two other participants you will be given a lot of individual support and guidance to design and make your own bespoke glass work.
All the necessary materials and equipment are included in the price, but additional glass may be purchased on a full day course should you wish to work at a larger scale.

For safety reasons you are advised to wear casual clothing and closed toed shoes in the studio.
Drinks will be provided, but please bring a packed lunch.
The full day experiences start at 10.00am and finish at around 4.00pm. Half day sessions usually run from 10.00am to 1.00pm. Some dates are published on the webite, but vouchers can be purchased and dates for the experience arranged to suit - just send me a message.
Once complete, your glass will need to be kiln fired, so it will be ready for collection 5 - 10 days after the event depending on the type of work being produced. (Each firing will take around 9 hours and a day to cool before the kiln can be opened).

You will be notified when your glass is ready to collect, or you can arrange for it to be posted to you at cost.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:
  • How to select, cut and combine glass safely to achieve a range of different effects. 
  • Basic firing schedules and how to load your work into the kiln. 
  • How to design and make your chosen products e.g., coasters, light catchers, jewellery, free standing ornaments, glass art etc.
  • How you could present your work to show it to its best advantage once complete. 

FAQ'S
IS THE EXPERIENCE SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS?
No prior experience is necessary; just an open mind and a willingness to experiment.

IS THERE AN AGE RESTRICTION?
Yes, the minimum age is 12 years

DO I NEED TO BRING ANY EQUIPMENT WITH ME?
No. Everything is supplied, but if you have your own glass cutter or other equipment you like to use, then by all means bring it with you.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE STUDIO IS NOT WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE.
