The studio, set up in 2003, is a well equipped working studio, nestled into beautifully quiet surroundings in the rural valley of Fountaindale, on the NSW Central Coast. It is here that Clare creates her own artwork, as well as teaching new and continuing students.

I had such a great weekend at Clare’s glass fusing course. Her practical and technical knowledge of glass and the equipment is amazing, and the course delivery was set at a good pace. Given her many, many years of working with glass, as well as the equipment used the course is very good value.I highly recommend this course to absolute beginners as well as to experienced glass artists. Thanks again Clare.

I recently attended a beginners leadlight class with Clare and her fabulous assistant David. The atmosphere was so welcoming. The class was designed perfectly, giving plenty of time for learning and hands on practice. We all came away with a finished piece to be proud of. There is a strong emphasis on OH&S and the studio facilities are outstanding. I would highly recommend these classes and I am sure I will be booking in for more.

I recently had the pleasure in completing a Lead Light Glass Beginners course with Clare and her assistant David. It is an incredibly well organised and planned two days. Not only did we create beautiful lead light art but as a group we were all very supportive of each other. I learned so much over the two days covering design information, glass cutting to soldering. I appreciated the OH&S focus as we were using glass and lead products. The insight that Clare and David provided were thorough and clear. I didn’t ever feel overwhelmed and felt comfortable asking for help. I’m eager to try more lead light glass art and hope to attend further classes to learn more.

I was fortunate enough to gain a place in a two day glass workshop with the very talented Clare Peters and her very innovative husband David. Together they have built a creative space that has been carefully planned and thought out for the purpose of teaching.  I felt privileged to be around these knowledgeable people that took such great care to make my weekend memorable. Our class of eight came away with six amazing glass works that we learned how to fuse and slump. It was a great success all round because of the way it was executed. Well done Clare and David. I am totally hooked and am hoping to sign up for a term soon!

I recently completed Clare Peters’ Warm Glass workshop and had a wonderful time. Being a complete novice, I walked away with an incredible amount of knowledge, being taken through the why as well as the how. Clare is so welcoming, making you immediately feel comfortable on arrival. We walked away with so many different pieces, each of a different style, using different techniques. Highly recommended.
-Kristine P. (Mar 2022)
I recently did the Warm Glass Weekend Workshop with Clare. Clare is a very knowledgeable and patient teacher. The workshop was well organised with just the right balance of theory and creative time. We worked on and took home lots of finished pieces, which is a lovely reminder of a busy but rewarding workshop. I am looking forward to more workshops with Clare. Thank you!

The level of expertise and know-how from Clare is amazing! She caters to all ranges of abilities, and is a wealth of knowledge. I felt at home and in good hands when in her “Cottage” (workshop).

I absolutely recommend booking a class with Clare Peters. Her wealth of expertise and experience is extraordinary. She has a wonderful ability to explain everything in a simple easy manner.

Clare is amazing, such a lovely person and so incredibly talented with a fabulous and patient teaching style. She instructs in an easy to follow way and pace, allows her students autonomy but is more than happy to help when needed. Her studio is that of dreams and she is always happy to share her knowledge and years of experience and expertise. David is also a wealth of information and incredible assistance. And Ollie is just beautiful. Excellent value. A fabulous experience. I’ve already booked my next workshop.

Just finished an amazing weekend doing Clare’s Warm Glass Fusing & Slumping course. I learnt so much. Clare is very informative & you can tell that she is very passionate about her craft, & loves to share her knowledge. I would highly recommend doing this course, & you don’t need to know anything about cutting glass! Clare will help you. Thank you Clare for a wonderful weekend.
-Mhorag W. (Aug 2020)
I have just finished a two day workshop with Clare Peters and was most impressed with what I learned from this world famous artist. From the moment she started the day it was all done very professionally. Clare had direction and presented the information in an interesting manner. She was organised and much to my delight, there was plenty of equipment. There was no need to share anything (so important during this pandemic). There were even Perspex shields so everyone could work safely. Over the two days Clare gave us different projects to make out of glass. They were a delight to take home and show the family. It was a wonderful experience, very much value for money. I am seriously thinking of going again!
-Jane G. (Aug 2020)
We have just finished a brilliant weekend lead light workshop. Absolutely the best art workshop I have ever done. Enjoyed by all. Thank you Clare!!
