I started as an animal artist in pencils and pastels and then moved to painting on glass using enamels.
I am passionate about glass fusing and using my skills to teach others to create wonderful pieces of art etc. I can use my own experience to help you have a go at painting on glass if that is something you would like to try.
Glass is very addictive so I hope I can pass this addictive hobby on to you ?
"I attended the one day course with 2 friends, we had a wonderful day, Jane gave us the opportunity to paint with enamels in glass and also make glass panels for fusing. We had a delicious lunch too, and cannot wait to see our projects once fused. I would recommend this course to anyone especially if lacking in confidence as Jane encouraged us to channel our hidden creativity"
"Myself and a friend did the full day glass fusing course and we absolutely loved it. Both total beginners but we used a variety of techniques and made 2 pieces we can’t wait to see after they’ve been fired. Jane was very patient, helpful when needed but we were totally hands on and as previous comments said we cut glass, ground it and also used the glass powders and frit. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it."
"Jane was very knowledgeable and an excellent teacher. She talked me through each stage and made this a very enjoyable day. I'm looking forward to seeing the end results of my work after the items have been fired in the kiln. I would recommend this course and hope to return in the near future to develop more skills. Many thanks."
"I did the one day glass-fusing course and thoroughly enjoyed it. I have done some glass fusing before but still learned lots from Jane. I practiced cutting and grinding glass and using the cut pieces of glass as well as coloured glass powders and frit to make four pictures to fit into a lantern. I’m very pleased with the finished product and I’m keen to do more glass work in future."

" It was such a pleasure to welcome you into the studio. The pieces you made are amazing and I hope to see you again in the future.
You did so well ? and have a natural flair for glass"
