Courses

Intro classes are designed for beginners with little or no experience working with glass. It’s about having fun, learning a new skill and going home with a panel to be proud of!

My students are always amazed at how much they can achieve in a day and I enjoy showing them the techniques. Improvers classes are for anyone who has completed my intro class and wishes to have another go or improve on any aspect of making a panel.

I started with evening classes in stained glass late 1990′s in St Albans. Then went to Kensington and Chelsea college full time in 1998-2000 gaining an HND Btec in 3D Design specialising in glass and silversmithing. After re-locating to Basingstoke I found there was a stained glass studio / shop in Reading and started working there in 2005. I was designer, painter, maker, advisor and assistant in  this busy studio. I gained the commercial and architectual experience needed to set up on my own.
