With the importance of less waste and changing the way we consume goods, being at the forefront of our minds, buying less ‘stuff’ and locally is the thing to do now.  I don’t feel too bad saying please buy local from makers and artists this Christmas. There is a host of exciting workshop experiences out there, where one takes home not only a beautiful creation but a lovely memory that lasts.

Autumn Copper Foiling workshops

After a glorious hot summer, maybe too hot at times, I had an end of summer trip to a very misty atmospheric Whitby to see the coast and golden sandstone after time spent in the glorious Lake and Peak districts, enjoying the sunshine and the heather turning purple. Now waiting for the Autumn colours to arrive, as a lot of us its get back into school and work routine.

If a creative colour fix is needed, there are places left on the Introduction to Copper Foiling day workshop, on the 21st October and 1st December. A chance to learn a new skill and play with beautiful colourful glass, following one of my patterns or forming your own small sun-catcher to take home.

The last workshop of spring/summer has run.  There are new dates in Autumn for workshops in Introduction to Copper Foiling and Stained Glass for Beginners Weekends. The Evening class is full, as all the previous students are continuing onto the next course for the Autumn term.

For the first time I am starting a waiting list for the Evening class, and considering running a daytime course in the new year. If you are interested in either please do let me know. Contact form.

A slide show of students work from this the last term, who wouldn’t love the beauty of shiny colourful glass.
