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.

"Excellent course for beginners and anyone interested in glass creations. Melanie is an excellent and engaging tutor. Good explanations and clear instructions. Very happy with my glass. Will definitely join other classes. "
"Had a great day with my friend going the wet felt day course. Learnt lots and Melanie was a great tutor. Finished off my embellishments when I got home. Now ready to frame it. Thoroughly recommend this workshop. "
"My daughter and I had a lovely creative time together. It was a lovely thing to do together with a great atmosphere and we got spoilt rotten with coffee and a huge selection of cakes and goodies. Really lovely afternoon and we have beautiful lanterns and jewellery to remember it! "
