We are very disappointed that the Exeter Craft Festival has been cancelled again for 2021, but will be attending next year!
We are thrilled to have secured a place at the amazing Exeter Craft Festival held annually on Cathedral Green in Exeter. Sadly it was cancelled last year due to the pandemic, but this year its looking positive it can go ahead.
We are very much looking forward to this fantastic event and are flexing our creative muscles in readiness!

Bright Star Glass Begins
2020 has been a strange year, it might not seem like the best time to start a business, but for me it was. Like many people I was furloughed from my job for around three months and I was keen to make the most of this opportunity. I have been a stained glass hobbyist for over 10 years having completed an OCN in Stained Glass in 2007. It is a really enjoyable but time consuming craft and I suddenly had a large amount of time to put into it and so Bright Star Glass was born! I hope this will lead to bright things ahead and hope you will join me along the way!
Firing on all cylinders!
After my first year as Bright Star Glass I have achieved one of my goals which was to buy my first Kiln!
I was very excited to take receipt of my brand new Olympic 18 Kiln from Creative Glass Guild in Bristol - big shout out to them, their customer service was great!
It will allow me to be more creative and to add elements of fused and painted glass which I have been longing to do for many years. I'll hopefully be able to show you some of my experiments and creations soon, but here is one of my first fusings, using recycled float glass!
Christmas Market at Exeter Westpoint 11th - 13th December 2020
We are very excited to be attending our first ever market this December! The Devonshire County Christmas Market is taking place at Westpoint, Exeter from Friday 11th - Sunday 13th December 2020. Tickets are already selling out fast!
We will be there for the three days with a wide range of items from small tree decorations to larger panels. Its sure to be a really great festive event. Hope to see you there.

I had hoped to be able to attend a few craft fairs this year to promote my new business, but with the current restrictions many have been cancelled or have been greatly reduced. As soon as we have some booked in we will post them here - stay tuned!
