I attended the BA (Hons) Architectural Glass course in Swansea and spent three years falling in love with the designing and making of stained glass. With amazing tutors, lovely fellow students and truly inspiring materials to work with, I found myself looking forward to going to University every day.

And these days, I’m looking forward to going to work each day. I work in the stained glass workshop at Nidaros Cathedral in Norway, where we’re restoring the stained glass of both our beautiful cathedral, and take on external projects from all over Norway. Restoration of stained glass means you get to work with all the different techniques of traditional stained glass, and you also get to be challenged every day.

I can honestly say that I never thought of stained glass as a profession, before I found the Architectural Glass course by a coincident. I am so glad I did, and I would recommend both the course and a profession within architectural glass wholeheartedly!
