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.

Sue sagar reviewed: Fused Glass Wave and Dichroic Glass Jewellery Workshop with Crafts in the Valley

"Melanie, the course tutor, really knew her stuff. She was very approachable at all times, explained things really well. The edible treats and beverages flowed all mane. My sister and I are very excited to see what our glass wave and jewellery turn out like in a few weeks. I definitely recommend this course, it was excellent ."

"I had a lovely morning making a glass bowl. Melanie was a brilliant teacher explaining techniques clearly and concisely. I am very proud of my final piece and looking forward to returning soon to make a different piece. "

"I really enjoyed this workshop, following on from the fused glass lantern workshop a few weeks ago. Melanie is an excellent teacher. The workshop is really well laid out and there are lots of materials available to complete the projects. I am looking forward to collecting my items later this week. I thoroughly recommend the fused glass workshops."
