Liz you're a superstar - you've made my weekend. I can't wait until June. I'm so happy to have supported a fellow glass artist reach for her dreams. I'm nearly as excited for you as you are :-)

Thank you so much for your good wishes Lorraine... how about sharing our crowdfunder link? bore the pants off your friends for a couple of weeks! :) Would you like some glass??? ;) I admit it, I am shameless.. :)

Good on you Liz! I've pledged what I can, shared your Crowdfunder details on my business Facebook and hope you make your target for a worthwhile project....if anyone can get this off the ground, it's you!!! Best of Luck - Helene x

Wow guys, I am feeling the love here! Thank you all so much for your support! As I write this we have raised £1,321, and just to let you know, £1,321 pays for moving and wiring in the kiln, and basic tools! That's a hell of a lot achieved already! But as you know, none of that will make any difference unless we reach our £3,500, (which means you won't get your rewards either!) , so keep telling everyone you know about it! And did I say thank you? x

For all you guys who can't get down to Somerset (UK) to attend a "Make it Big" workshop (boo hoo!) I am creating an online course. Having taken feedback from glass artists on what they want from on line tuition, I have found a platform where I can offer videos, written instructions, the ability to download, (so it's available for future reference indefinitely!!) AND the chance to ask me questions! How cool is that? The course will be designed for intermediate to advanced fusers who want to make their own splashbacks (back splashes) for kitchens and bathrooms, and will be available from mid June onwards, at any time to suit you. (£50 = roughly $75)

£50 or more

A mini Field of Flowers panel - same pattern as our most popular splashback, just smaller! 30cm x 26

Make Your own Splashback - yes YOU! :) No I know you don't have a clue how to, and you've never done anything with glass before, but I will teach you! And by the end of the weekend you will have cracked it.. oh wait..... NB. This reward does not include the cost of glass, as that depends on the size of splashback you want, and what sort of glass you use. Materials will cost between £50 (for a clear glass panel) and £200 (for a large coloured one). It does include the cost of delivery, and help with installation.

£250 or more

£250 Reward

Working with Large Panels and Splashbacks for Warm Glass Artists - the long awaited opportunity for you guys to come and pick my brains and for me to tell you everything I have learned the hard way over the last two years, so you don't have to make the mistakes I did! Finer details to follow, but this will be a mixture of pre course work and 2 or 3 days in my workshop in Somerset. Bring your own glass (or I can order it in separately for you). Save yourself a heap of money by booking this through my Crowdfunder!

Due to "selling out" of the Making it Big pledge within just 4 hours of going live, I am adding another course to the campaign! So, details the same as up there, a course for intermediate and advanced glass fusers, limited to just 3 people! You'll learn all you need to learn to confidently add splashbacks to your practice, including how to market them!
