Faerie Fleur was born and raised in Melbourne in a historic house full of antiques. She was the youngest of 5 siblings. Her mother was an antique dealer, and her passion was collecting glass objects.

Her passion for Glass Blowing started when she started creating Leadlights with Ian Readshaw as a hobby.Along with this magical beginning, she became the owner of Tamborine Mountain’s “Fairies on the Walk”.Seven years of Faerie face painting, storytelling and fairy design.
Since then, she started creating a foresty atmosphere in her colorful mushroom gardens around her glass studio.

Faerie’s first introduction to Kiln Fired Works took her to study Dichroic Glass, and that was the beginning of her journey as a professional Glass Blower. She also is qualified as a torch worker. (lampwork)

This morning, Friday 27 October 2023, was spent with Faerie at her home studio at Mt Tamborine and it was fabulous. She is a great teacher with a vast amount of knowledge, laid back and helpful at just the right time to stop any catastrophe! Faerie was terrific to deal with right from making the booking and all the necessary information beforehand. It was a great experience, we learned a lot and most important, had a great time. Highly recommend this workshop to all. Paul and Debi

We had a fabulous time. Faerie was full of energy & nothing was an issue. Her kindness & patience made our experience with Mosaics so much fun. I would recommend a class with friends anytime. There was an assessment of tiles/glass to choose from. Thankyou Faerie for making us feel so welcome & relaxed.

I wish I could give Faerie and her workshop more than 5 stars! Not only was the mosaic workshop so fun and unique, but her time and patience to our group was so generous! She went above and beyond with recommendations for Tambourine Mountain. I can’t recommend Fairy and her classes enough!
