Maker's bio

I’m Melanie, I deliver a range of creative art and craft workshops in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. As an artist and craftsperson, I enjoy playing with fused glass and textiles. I’m inspired by the array of colour and texture found in nature. I’m a fully qualified secondary school Art and Design teacher with a BA Hons Degree in Fashion and Textiles. A workshop with Crafts in the Valley is a special day out, learn creative skills and de-stressing! We refer to it as Creative Escapism.

Margaret, I travelled from Manchester & it was worth it! reviewed: Fused Glass - Three Little Birds with Crafts in the Valley

"I had such a lovely enjoyable time making my birds & a pair of earrings. Melanie had so many decorative colours and materials it was like being let loose in a sweet shop! A very creative course and Melanie explained all the stages so clearly. There were hot drinks and cake too. I thoroughly recommend her courses. "

Liam reviewed: Crafts in the Valley - Beginners glass fusing workshops in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire

"I recently attended the beginners Fused Glass course with my partner. We had an amazing time and learnt a lot about fusing glass. Melanie was lovely; we felt at ease instantly as the environment was really relaxed and we had a brew and biscuits in our hands within minutes! Melanie explained all of the activities in detail and was really attentive when asking for advice or just a quick reminder. The workshop was full of wide range of good materials and we had plenty of choice to design our items. We felt there was a good amount of time to design and complete our items and not feel rushed or bored. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in crafts and trying new things. We found it really interesting, so much so that we are going back for a Monday Maker's session in the near future. "
