Matthew Walsh is a skilled artist and has been working with Glass for the last 15 years. After wanting to try something new he has fallen in love with the more delicate world of Lamp-worked Glass. After setting up a workshop at his home on the edge of Exmoor National Park, Matthew has started produce beautiful Glass Beads in bright bold colours. Matthew has now moved to a new shop / workshop space in the centre of Tiverton, Devon, where he is now able to give others an insight into this craft.
