About The Glass Cabin

Rachael’s interest in fused glass was first sparked when she did an evening course in stained glass over 15 years ago. After discovering the techniques and broad creativity of this art form, she's been creating with glass ever since. Rachael works from her garden studio and when she isn’t hosting her glass art experiences you’ll find her there making her own art including trinket dishes and beautiful glass bunting. Rachael loves connecting with people and sharing her knowledge of working with glass, and her experiences are the perfect introduction to the world of glass art.

A truly wonderful experience, there was a huge range of different glass colours, textures and styles choose from and the host, Rachel, was lovely. I'd thoroughly recommend to friends and family and would like to book again in the not too distant future.
