Teaching Online, Videos and Classes

All my current teaching is online through newly developed courses with Warm Glass UK and Bullseye Glass. I will be developing new courses this year and these will be advertised to those on my Newsletter list, please sign up to get the news first.

A few years ago I made a video with Bullseye Glass in Portland of how I make tall kiln formed glass vessels. I've had many lovely responses over the years of how useful this was and the brilliant work they have created. Bullseye Glass are now running this as a 2-part Live class online. We will watch the video step by step and I will be able to answer any questions about the technique or design. I have recorded two new designs in my studio in Corsock which we will watch live.

The second class will be an overview of the previous class and a chance to ask more questions alongside a gallery of students work to share. It will be hosted by an experienced team in Portland at Bullseye Glass whilst I am live from my studio in Dumfries and Galloway.

The first class is scheduled for July 24 and the second part on 14 August. Please see here for more details and registration.


See the available online courses from Warm Glass here. This includes Sheet Glass Vessels, Powder Glass Vessels and Deep Forms with Bob Leatherbarrow.

My video, produced with Bullseye Glass is a step-by-step guide to making a tall glass vessel. Using opal and transparent sheet glass I show you all the tips for making this 3 step technique, building the blank, slumping the blank and coldworking the resulting vessel.

 Here is a trailer for the video.
