Maker's bio

Over the years I’ve turned my hand to wood, card, plastic and eventually spent 12 years as stained glass arrtist. In about 2005 when my eye turned to the style of my childhood, mid-century modern, those big concrete and glass forms that so many people love to hate but I have become intruiged by and in love with. My jewellery making began with me playing around with fold-forming copper, then somewhere along Brutalism raised its head and I found my muse.

Corinne reviewed: Stained Glass Beginners Workshop

"A very rewarding course, learning a new craft and coming home with a lovely stained glass panel. David is a very good tutor, giving lots of useful tips that has given me the confidence to try some leaded stained glass pieces for the garden. I thoroughly recommend this course to anyone who would like to try the craft of stained glass."

David J Lilly responded:

" Hi Corinne, Thank you so much for the the lovely review. It was great to see you push your imagined limits and not only choose one of the most complicated designs to make up, but completely pull it off beautifully. Best Wishes David"
