Чем вы займетесь
First of all we will get you inspired by showing you the incredible coloured glass rods that you will be using to create your beads and jewellery and examples of beautiful finished pieces, looking particularly at the colour combinations that work well together and getting you to pick out some of your own personal favourite colours. Then our attention is turned to the equipment, I will show you the glass torch and all the tools that you will be using throughout the day, you will then have demonstrations of making a glass bead, talking about the health and safety and showing you how easy it is to create a simple bead or glass droplet safely. As groups are small, I will work with you closely and soon you will be creating glass beads and as the day progresses I will show you different decorative techniques for you to try such as adding dots and swirls to your glass beads. During the session you will quickly learn this process and soon you will have a selection of glass beads and drops which we will then start to assemble with the sterling silver into finished items of jewellery. By the end of the day will you have learned a new skill and have a range of glass beaded jewellery.

I hold BA (Hons) degree in design, specialising in glass and ceramics. I am also a qualified teacher. Glass and ceramics are my passion! I have been working as a teacher in this field for over 20 years, teachering both privately and in the public education sector as a visiting lecturer at several universities. My own work as a glassblower and potter has been exhibited nationally in various galleries and shows. I have been teaching from my own studio in the heart of the beautiful village of Nunney for the past three years.

Где вы побываете
The workshop will take place in my studio which is inside an elegant Georgian property. The studio actually used to be the village butchers about 100 years ago, and you can see photos from the Victorian era of it as a butcher shop on the walls. There are many special features remaining from this era including the flagstone floors and metal safe where all the money used to be kept. From the studio it is also possible to see Nunney castle.
