Jo and friends

Student Days

Happy memories of college trip from Sunderland to Germany for a glass conference at Fraunau

Glasmuseum Fraunau

Visit to an amazing Technical college.

The whole year group and assorted tutors had a great time in Germany. At the conference Jo met Willem Heesen and was invited to work with him at his studio in Holland.

Here and Now

Bransfield Glass

Situated in farm buildings near Aylesbury,
Such a fun studio to work in. If you ever fancied having a go at glass making why not drop us a line to find out about the taster sessions we run.
