The Teacher

Creator of botanical glass beads and high-end jewellery since 2004, Kathryn Greer's world revolves around the secret garden, reminding us of her Irish origins.

Combining fauna and flora to create small glass worlds to discover, she works glass with a torch to create beads made entirely of glass, filled with elements very similar to real flowers and creatures of nature.

You will emerge from this class with your head full of new, meticulous glassworking techniques, allowing you to imagine your own botanical worlds!

PS: Kathryn speaks both French and English, so it will be possible to speak the language of your choice.
