Preparing for Art Weeks

Yes, it’s nearly May again and I’m getting really excited about exhibiting in this great county wide festival. I will have my studio open and my gazebo up full of lots of amazing glass pieces, some of which only get to see the light of day at this event.

Not only but also….I will be demonstrating the art of bead making using my new torch (aka flame thrower). The torch gets hot enough to melt glass rods from which I make beads of every colour. Come along and see for yourselves how this is done and get to take the bead I make in front you away with you (after 20 minutes cooling!). This really is magic!

Here are a few of the beads I have made. It’s a very addictive process and I love playing with colours, dots and swirls.

Here are a few of the creatures I have made – they are meant to be tortoises, dragons and few other things which need to be given a name.

I’ll give more sneak peaks of what will be on offer during my exhibition as we get nearer the time but, the most important thing is to come and have a look. There’s no obligation to buy but enjoy a cup of tea and a piece of cake to keep me company.

I will be open on 5th, 6th, 7th, 12th and 13th May from 11am to 6pm at Longridge, Spring Lane, Little Bourton, Banbury. OX17 1RB. Look out for the bunting to guide you to the house.

Looking forward to seeing you.

Hi My name is Jane and I live in North Oxfordshire, UK. I started making greetings cards and jewellery, progressed to working with stained glass, played with a microwave kiln for small fused glass items and then went all the way with a studio and kiln. I then explored lampworking and enjoy playing with hot glass too.. I have also been a knitter and crochet(ter?) since childhood. I enjoy playing with colour - the brighter the better in my opinion. I attend craft fairs each year in the local area as my glass is attractive face to face. I also run workshops in my garden studio and love to share my skills with others.
