After 30 years of practicing sewing and embroidery, and 10 years of teaching sewing and embroidery, I decided it was time for a change.

10 years ago I did an arts degree at university where I dabbled in various crafts and, although I went on to specialize in textiles, I always looked back fondly on the time I’d spent in the glass workshop.

Although I’ve always admired worked glass objects, I’ve never had the chance, since college,  to try my hand at cutting, fusing and slumping.

Until now.

I’ve sold all my workshop sewing machines and bought a glass kiln and just enough tools and supplies to get me going.

I am looking forward to the journey and hope you’ll tag along and share in my successes and failures as I pick my way gingerly through the world of glass!
