Glass @ the Barn: Home of minxenamels

I am a warm (fused Glass) artist based between Turnditch and Hulland Ward, Derbyshire.I have been working in this medium for 12 years creating quality jewellery, household items ranging from dishes, bowls, window panels, bespoke tiles and decorative commissioned items such as cooker splash backs.

I work mainly with bullseye glass which enables me to create pieces in a wide range of colours, I also work in glass embossing and imagery on glass.

I also run glass workshops form my studio. which include 2.5hr taster session, full day and 4 week project based workshops, where you can create your own work of art. My workshops are mainly pre booked, please contact me to arrange suitable date/ time and can accommodate up to 8 people per session.

I also run Mobile workshops which have proved very popular with local WI and Craft groups, including workshops at Sticky Fingers in Ashbourne and Sharpes Pottery Museum in Swadlincote.

Please contact me for more details
