Hot Frit make awards for Lancashire Fire Service Stars

In the run up to Christmas 2018 Hot Frit were delighted to be contacted by Gemma Collinge and Laura McGaghey from Lancashire Fire Service who wanted to know if we would be interested in making some awards… Hell yes!

The awards were for anyone working for Lancashire Fire Service, whom the service wished to acknowledge for going above and beyond their individual duties. The chosen few would recieve a Star of 2018 award for their brilliance!

There were 6 lucky recpients each based at stations across Lancashire.

It was very tricky for us to keep our mouths shut about who had won and what a fantastic idea we thought it was to recognise individuals and all the hard work they put in to make Lancashire Fire Service great… but now we are ready to shout about it!

Well done to Paul Hanson, Wendy Gaskell, Louise Rainford, Graham Eaton, Richard Holden and Michael Grimshaw and many congratulations!

Well Done! Hot Frit design and make awards.

Hot Frit Visits Grindleton Brownies

Abi Hot Frit meets the Grindleton Brownies

January 2017…It’s a new year; what better way to brighten up a dark evening than a visit to Grindleton Brownies?!

Abi Hot Frit meets the Grindleton Brownies
Abi Hot Frit explains how we at Hot Frit got into fusing glass and how we came to love it!

Hot Frit were asked along to talk about life working as an artist. An opportunity we relished.

We packed up a selection of glasses, frit’s and a few sample pieces we had knocking about and set off to Grindleton to chat art and crafts with a lovely group of young ladies and their Brown Owl.

We were made very welcome and were delighted to see how interested and engaged the girls were in the experience. After a short talk about how we produce our wares and a demonstration of glass cutting and assembling pieces, the girls wanted to have a go themselves. We gladly encouraged them to place a piece of glass onto a clear ground for fusing and then brought their piece back to Hot Frit HQ for firing.

Hot Frit meets Grindleton Brownies for some glass fusing!
