Sharon Hanlon from Reflect Glass designs and handmakes unique jewellery, and sells a range of recycled glass items in the One Planet shop. We met with her as she led a workshop with Lizi at Pendle Pottery in Simonstone near Pendle Hill, teaching other people to make their own fused glass item of jewellery.
It was a really interesting workshop to watch and take part in, and each participant created their own design from a range of colours of glass. Sharon demonstrated how to safely cut different shapes with the cutting tools, and brought lots of finished examples to give the class ideas.
After the class finished, we chatted with Sharon about the process of creating her work, how she got started, and the importance of supporting local artisans through shops like One Planet.
