Maker's bio

My name is Laura Barnes and I have my own studio and run all my mosaic courses from there. With 26 years experience in commercial mosaic crafts, including working with the National Trust and Crafts Council, I now offer tutoring to small groups. I am based in Todmorden, West Yorkshire and have a fantastic mix of mosaic materials and tools for any type of mosaic project. I run classes in mosaic, leaded stained glass, silver clay and willow weaving.

"Hi the course with Laura was great thanks... I achieved a lot from the course and has given me confidence to do glass cutting myself... Lovely lady 🥰 so a 5 star experience for me "

" It was a joy to work with you! I know you will continue and learn more. Practice, practice....keep holding the glass scorer as I showed you and it will all come together. I run the 2 day course if you fancy more indepth knowledge. All the best, Laura. "

Dave Goodman reviewed: Two day Leaded Stained Glass panel making.

"Very friendly, enthusiastic and informative course. Covers everything from design, glass cutting, leading, soldering right through to cementing and you get to take home your piece. Has definitely inspired me to do more stained glass."

Laura Barnes Crafty Fox Studios responded:

" I can definitely imagine you settling up a workshop in the dining room! Keep going ... I've had brilliant feedback about your stained glass sheep. A pleasure to meet and work with you. All the very best for the future. "

"I had a brilliant afternoon with Laura making a glass mosaic. She is a very talented artist and shares her skills really well as a teacher. She is patient and supportive and helps develop your own design ideas "

" I'm really pleased to hear from you! This course is a proper learning curve and you got to grips with it. My evening class students love your green Budgie. I hope to see you again when you're back visiting the area. Many thanks, Laura. "

Rachael reviewed: Half day mosaic workshops with Laura Barnes.

"Laura's workshop was fab! The studio is in a cool, old building and Laura herself was very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. There was sufficient time to do what we needed in a relaxed, calm way under Laura's guidance and we created some lovely pieces. I was able to bring my 3 month old baby, which was a huge help too! Will definitely be looking to do more courses with Laura in the future. Thank you! "

" Hello Rachael, it was my pleasure to meet you all including baby! Your work was lovely and I think you learned a lot in a short time. Well done all of you and thank you for your review. You are welcome anytime. Laura "
