I melted my first glass rod in June 2007, set off the fire alarm and was evicted to the garden shed! I have been smitten with bead making ever since. In April 2008 I had the privilege of taking classes with Sally Carver and Diana East. In July 2009 I took a residential master class with Dora Schubert at beautiful West Dean. In April 2010 I was fortunate enough to spend time learning with Andrea Guarino on her "revealing the unexpected" master class. At the 2012 UK Flame Off I was fortunate enough to take a class with the exceptional Pati Walton who is one of my very earliest glass heros. I am very excited about my upcoming class with Leah Fairbanks in 2013.
