Workshop Envy... Shedglas Design

Yesterday I went to see my friend Cathi at her Open Studio and Garden event in Haconby Village in Lincolnshire. She has a beautiful garden! (I WANT A GARDEN LIKE THAT! Imagine how much fun Taj and Millie would have if they had all that space!)

And she has a lovely workshop. Yes it is in a shed but what a marvellous shed it is! Cathi's studio is a really pleasant place to be, surrounded by gorgeous stained glass panels, mirrors and decorative hangings. And all the right tools to make these beautiful stained glass designs. Cathi is very good at what she does!

We are very proud of of our Lapidary workshop in the garage, but the Shedglas Design studio is something else! One day I would love to have a jewellery and Lapidary workshop like this with lots of natural light, fresh air and space to have open studio days. That's when we could perhaps start teaching as well...

Cathi  was demonstrating her craft and carrying out little modifications to existing pieces for customers. It was lovely to see this really talented artist at work.

Cathi offers leaded and Copper Foil Stained glass classes at the studio. More details can be found on her website Shedglas.co.uk

I attended one of Cathi's Copper Foil Stained glass workshops some time ago and really enjoyed the experience. I look forward to doing another one in the near future. Its a great new skill to learn and something I know I can apply to some of my work too!

I made these at a Shedglas Design Copper Foil Workshop. Not in the same class as my lovely teacher's work but I am very proud of them :-)
