Atlantic Glass Studio is situated in a fantastic location in Bude on the Lower Wharf overlooking the canal and Summerleaze Beach. It is a workshop/studio enabling 4 local glass artists to show and sell their work in this fabulous location. Currently we have 3 fused glass artists and one lampworker. We do not have the facilities for large kilns or torches, but do preparatory and finishing work in the studio.

We are able to have four artists (members) sharing the space and we are currently looking for expressions of interest in case we have a situation in the future where we have a space available for another artist to join us. All pieces sold in the studio must be work of the highest quality created by the artists who share the space; some of us work with other materials, such as pearls and silver and we also have these items on display in the studio. The studio is open all year round, 7 days a week from June to the end of September and then the hours vary (always weekends; more information on the opening hours and on the studio itself can be found on the right hand side of this page). We share the manning of the studio equally between us which means that anyone joining us must be able to work weekends and over the summer holidays a minimum of 2 days a week and two weekend days a month.

All members of the studio must be registered as sole traders in their own right and the studio itself is run as a partnership by two of the artists. Experience of dealing with customers and excellent customer service is vital. Members must be able to produce sufficient work to stock the studio (we can get busy in the summer) and should also be able to explain the different glass working techniques which we use to create our work (training can be given). We work together and share the responsibilities of running the studio, so good team work is essential.

We would be pleased to receive expressions of interest from all glass artists, no matter your discipline, but are especially interested to hear from Stained Glass artists and/or Mosaic glass artists to compliment the other artists currently in the studio. We would like the new member to ideally be within a 15 mile radius of Bude.

If you would be interested in joining the studio, please send an email, including photos of your work and details of your experience.  If you would prefer to ask us some questions about this opportunity first to see if it would be suitable for you you can either email us or telephone on 01288 321535 where you will be able to speak to (or leave a message for) one of us.   This website contains information about us and our work, we can also follow us on facebook, twittter, and have just recently started an Instagram page.
