Meet your tutor

Hi, I'm Dave Smith.

I've designed album covers for world-renowned bands and artists, created unique illustrations for bottles of gin and created glass pieces for global brands.

I'm very excited to be able to share what I have learned and used throughout my career with you.

I look forward to passing this on, (with a laugh along the way) and hope you will join me in my online course.

What others say...


You're a serious wealth of knowledge and it's amazing that your willing to share it so generously.

- Craig Brown


I feel very privileged to have attended a Dave Smith workshop and learned from the master craftsman himself. An excellent teacher of glass work gilding with a fun sense of humour!
