I am a glass artist based in Halifax, West Yorkshire and work with stained glass, fused glass and mosaics. I run courses from my workshop in Halifax to introduce you to the techniques required to produce your own work. All my courses are technical, hands-on, practical workshops with the aim of inspiring you to be excited and creative with the medium of glass. I also produce my own work with a preference for fused glass. I work with mainly float glass and use texture and frits to bring the glass alive.
My name is Linda Thomson and I live near the country town of Biggar, with my husband two dogs and three cats. I have always been interested in crafts, particularly Papier Mache bowls and vases, glass and silk painting. I have been making Dichroic glass jewellery for about two years selling locally through shops, crafts fairs, and the internet.
I have been engraving glass for over 20 years and it has been my main professional activity for the last 15. I was elected a Fellow of the Guild of Glass Engravers in 2000. I work both to commission and for exhibitions.
