WAES features at international craft exhibition

Students of Westminster Adult Education Service will have their work featured at the prestigious Handmade at Kew international contemporary craft event this Autumn.

The students, all of whom have studied their level 3 art & design qualification with WAES in the last year, will exhibit their glass creations alongside jewellery, ceramics, fashion and textiles from over 200 designers and galleries around the world at the picturesque Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew.

The Handmade in Kew event runs from 8 October until 11 October.

Pam Fyvie, one of the students says of her WAES experience:

"In 2012 after fusing glass in a small studio in my home for two years, I wanted to learn how to cast glass.

After a very extensive search I found WAES. I live in Oxford, but I was not going to let the distance put me off.

I was amazed and delighted to find such a well set up studio to work in - I went from no experience at all in Glass Casting, to being able to produce complicated core casts. I absolutely love what I do and can’t thank WAES and my tutor Anna enough for my life changing new skills."


Pam will be exhibiting her piece titled 'Veil of Sadness' (pictured), part of a series of pieces referencing the brutality of ISIS to the Yezhidi people and the atrocities of the Middle East.

Handmade at Kew is a very special chance for the public to invest in beautiful, unique products at a show where you can buy, browse and commission directly from the maker; unearthing the stories, inspirations and processes behind the exquisite work of some of the world’s most talented craftspeople.

Housed in an elegant pavilion next to Kew Palace, the unique outdoor format of the event will allow visitors to enjoy the Gardens and crafts to the full. One ticket allows access to the whole of Kew Gardens, so make a day of it and explore!
