About the Tutor: Cathy Barcham

Cathy Barcham is an artist with many years’ experience in stained glass and design; many of her qualifications were obtained while studying glass here at Tonbridge Adult education centre. She has completed a postgraduate in glass and design at St Martins in London. She has been teaching in adult education for several years.
‘I first trained in fine art, and for the past years I have been experimenting and exploring the medium of glass as an additional means of expression. I have exploited the medium of glass to translate ideas, layering colours and the dynamics of the figure into sculptural forms and creating narrative panels, combining fused glass with metals, stains and oxides.’
