We’ve been running our popular bauble making sessions for several years now and they’ve always been a great success, so much so that some people come back year after year!
Each place costs £40 per person and payment is required with booking.

This is an exciting, hands-on workshop where you make your own blown glass Christmas bauble to keep and treasure or give as a gift. Why not come with a group of friends and family for a fun-filled pre-Christmas outing?

The sessions last around an hour and include a demonstration from Adam, who will then work with each person to blow their own bauble in a colour of their choice. If you’d like to make two baubles, just book two places!

After your bauble experience, you can browse our shop and gallery, packed with wonderful creative Christmas gifts, and enjoy a cup of mulled wine and a mince pie.

Adam Aaronson nominated for Surrey Artist of the Year Award 2016.

It was a great surprise to Adam when he heard that he had been nominated.

Adam said “I was delighted to learn that I had been nominated for SAOY. This came totally out of the blue as the nomination was from the readers of Surrey Life Magazine, so I’d like to say thank you to them.”

How to vote

The winner of this award is determined by public vote. If you would like to vote for Adam, or one of the other nominees, you can do so if you visit the exhibition in person between before October 21st. It is not possible to vote online.

The winner receives a bursary of £1,000 and a solo show, so this is actually quite a big deal!

The Surrey Artist of the Year competition is a partnership between the New Ashgate Gallery in Waggon Yard, Farnham and Surrey Artists Open Studios.

This aspirational event, running annually since 2009, offers a collective of local quality arts and craft, voted for by the public during open studio visits.

The top scoring artists come together for an exhibition at New Ashgate, one of the most prestigious galleries in the country. There is a wide variety of artworks on show, all offering different materials and techniques, from ceramics, collage, glass, jewellery, painting, and photography to printmaking, sculpture, textiles and woodwork. Together these illustrate the wealth of Surrey creative talent.

The works by Adam Aaronson selected for SAOY at New Ashgate are an eclectic group designed to illustrate his diverse repertoire. These range from the pure forms of his “Sail” sculptures to his quirky abstract animals and birds. From his lyrical, simplicity of his “Flight” sculptures to his light-hearted Doodle vases and bowls, which based on a lifelong habit of doodling all over his notebooks
