Crafters' Showcase

We hope you are inspired by this selection of lovely and sometimes surprising works created from designs in our books. Stained glass examples have intentionally been excluded. The purpose of this showcase is to demonstrate the diversity of other crafts for which these designs are so suitable.

Special thanks go to all those who have taken the time to send us photos and details of their craft. We hope to make Crafters' Showcase a popular spot to visit and an inspiration for a very diverse group of craftspeople and artisans.

If you'd like to submit your creation, please email a digital image to info@glassbooks.com.au

Copyright of each design in our books remains the property of the artist/author at all times. The artists are very happy for people to share the joy of making up any of these designs, in whatever craft or medium, for personal use only and with acknowledgment of the artist who created it.
