Catherine Hervé

I "fell" into glass art in 2004. I took the Vitrail stained glass classes with the association of the inhabitants of Meyrin (Geneva). I then had the chance to work for 8 years at the Atelier "UniVerre" with Sylviane Speiser, at the time in Rolle at the shore of the lake of Geneva. I deepened my knowledge by creating, repairing and/or finishing many pieces of glass art. I also had the opportunity to teach classes for children and adults. Now I am well trained and love to give classes and teach.
