Over the past year Sue has been developing the Ouseburn Glass Learners zone. Creating opportunities for those excited by glass to come and be taught by leading practitioners in her studio. The studio is a fantastic space for people interested in glass to come and experiment working with glass in an artist’s studio with access to professional tools and equipment.


Several Master classes in painting and casting were taught in 2013, this year we are building upon the programme with further classes. Sue is currently teaching ‘A Passion for Glass’ eight-week course with Dr Laura Johnston.
