The Workshop

We open our workshop doors monthly, to a maximum of 4 students simultaneously.

The course takes place at the private studio of Kathryn Greer, in Essonne. It is very easy to access, being 5min walk from our RER C station, in Saint-Michel-sur-Orge.

The Teacher

This course will be led by Nathalie Crottaz (FR), glassworker specializing in the work of glass beads since 2010.


Recognized internationally for her technical precision and her sometimes unusual designs, Nathalie will take you on a journey through the world of the ancestral traditional glass bead, to then introduce you to more current and modern techniques that you can use to find your own style.


You will come out of the course with solid foundations to start your creations in your own workshop!
