Make something gorgeous in my fully-equipped studio in the heart of the Hampshire countryside

Learn a New Craft

With no experience necessary, why not join one of my glass fusion workshops. Come on your own or come with friends to enjoy a relaxed and fun introduction to the techniques of handling art glass. With class sizes of 6, each participant can work with their own set of tools and materials at their own pace with experienced one-to-one guidance. Courses can be booked on-line and you can buy course vouchers for that unique gift.

Develop a Skill

One day ‘Taster’ and two day ‘Beginners’ courses available, get an understanding of a wide range of techniques to suit your level of interest. Start by cutting and shaping glass, augment your work with metals and small decorative ‘frit’ granules and go on to create your own, original designs and see them magically transformed by firing in the kiln. Watch the video to learn more.
