A glass act

Step into Emma Mayle's studio on the outskirts of Newark and you'll find yourself surrounded by all the colours of the rainbow - a cornucopia of fused glass jewellery, art and household objects...

Tucked away in a purpose-built log cabin in her garden, that studio is home to Stopped Clock Glass, the business she launched in the summer of 2017 after quitting her job as a family support officer to pursue her dream of being a glass artist.

Emma will be chatting to June and Rachel on next Sunday's show, describing how a couple of curve balls thrown her way in her mid 20s prompted her to turn her attention to her lifelong passion for the arts and study for a degree in contemporary crafts.

Find out how, with her two young sons now at school, she's achieved her dream of creating her own colourful creations and selling them at craft markets across the region.

And how she's now taken the next step, joining fellow artists and small business owners who've opened pop up shops just this month in the newly-renovated Newark Buttermarket...

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon as Emma shares her story with the Girls Around Town - and learn how you could try your hand at creating your own pieces of glass work on one of her taster or full day workshops.
