TEENAGE SKILL UP is a series of new workshops which aims to give young people direct access to some of the great international artists appearing in the festival. 

In this workshop you will explore the marks and textures that can be made on clear glass using a small drill in the same way you would hold a pencil to paper. Make your own miniature artwork to take away.

The workshop has been subsidised through the generous support of Mark Holford.

£10 each to cover materials. Maximum of 6 in the class. 


Nancy Sutcliffe is an award winning contemporary glass engraver and gilder. At art school she specialised in Medical and Scientific Illustration and graduated with a BA.Hons in Design. The discipline and attention to detail required in that subject has informed much of her subsequent work. Drawing is key to her artistic practice and her engravings are essentially carved drawings on glass.

For several years Nancy shared her time between her studio in rural Herefordshire and city living in the Middle East. Whilst in the UAE she developed a fascination for gold leaf and how it might be applied to her figurative engravings. The result of her extensive experimentation is a richly detailed style of inscribed applied gold leaf which has become characteristic of her work.
