Maker's bio

About Hope - Having originally trained as a fashion designer and dabbling in various creative media, I finally found my passion lay in glass. As a self taught glass artist, I love the endless possibilities of that the glass offers and the many different outcomes I can achieve with different techniques. I am always trying out new methods and looking for fresh designs that will catch my shopper's attention. I am now offering workshops so that others can enjoy working and creating with glass.

Samantha Nye reviewed: Laura - Bespoke Fused Glass Lantern Workshop

"Hope was absolutely brilliant talking to us all about the glass fusion process, how to approach designing and how to work with the glass to get the best result. We were a crafty bunch and there was 11 of us in our group. No request was too difficult and help was always on hand if needed. Tea and biscuits was an absolute plus in my book too. I would definitely recommend this course for beginner right up to the more experienced. I just cannot wait to see my finished lantern. "

Hope Best Design responded:

" Thank you Samantha, it was an amazing day and so pleased that you all enjoyed yourselves! Look forward to hopefully seeing you again in the future! Monica & Hope"

"This workshop was brilliant and very enjoyable. Teacher was very knowledgeable and patient and was attentive . Cant wait to see my fused glass lantern when the panels have been fired in the kiln and it's all put together . Will definitely be booking more workshops. Thank you."
