Glass Plate Painting

Create your own, colorful glass plate! In this creative workshop, you will be able to design and paint your own glass plate, using age old techniques that were used as far back as the medieval times: Most of the intricate details in church windows are made this way! Explore the traditional craft of glass art, while adding your own modern touch. There is no prior knowledge needed to attend this class. If you have an idea in mind, we will help you create in a way that works with the medium.

You can choose between two shapes – round or square. The plate will be heated up to 740 degrees, so it is washable and dishwasher safe. In the end, you can take your unique piece of glassware home with you.


The price of this workshop is 25€ per person. Every participant gets to take home one plate. It will take about one and a half to two hours, but we can arrange individual sessions if you want to stay longer or make more. Contact us for more information and please let us know your preferred time to attend so we can work out how to schedule the classes!


Note that your plate has to stay in the kiln for a while before it is finished, so you can’t take it home with you straight away. If you aren’t in Riga for long enough but still want to take part in the workshop, we can arrange shipping for you.
