I started my adventure with glass eighteen months ago attending a couple of one-day introductory courses quickly followed by a five-day kiln-formed glass workshop. I was fascinated by the variety of glass techniques and, like my ceramicist friends, the thrill of seeing how my work turned out after opening the kiln. Having always been interested in art, I enrolled in a one-year glass diploma course in Art & Design at Kensington & Chelsea College (KCC), graduating in July 2017. Encouraged by my tutor I also began attending creative glass workshops at Richmond Adult Community College (RACC). I am continuing my learning, studying for my BTEC Level 3 Glass Certificate in Art & Design as well as continuing attending other specialist glass workshops.
