Glass Dragonfly

“Find Tell Share” is a podcast co-hosted in Sheffield by Chris Sissons, Market Together and Jemma Rosenthal, Creative Hearts.  It’s the storyteller’s podcast, featuring everything storytelling, especially if you use stories to promote your business or charity (and you should!).  We produce an edition once a month with a guest, watch out for the next!

This month we discuss dragonflies, German police roadblocks, words that rhyme with glass and finding love beyond the looking glass.

August’s Guest

August’s guest is Pam Goodison, Glass Artist

Pam has been working with stained glass for over 15 years. She started by attending a ‘workshop’ at a local college in Sheffield and caught ‘the bug’.  Since then Pam has worked in both the copper foiling and leaded techniques. She has successfully designed and made windows for herself and commissions. Pam has also made smaller pieces such as sun catches and 3D work. In 2012 she studied the art of fused glass at Darton College. This has opened up a world of different creative opportunities for her, including screen printing on glass.

Pam studied art at school and was to go on to Degree level. Sadly she was unable to follow her dream but has found that her ‘creative style’ has appeared in other ways, namely through her eye for design and work with glass.

In the last couple of years, she has displayed her work at Countryfile Live at Blenheim Palace as well as The British Craft Trade Fair at Harrogate Showground.  She has also undertaken charity work with Barnsley Hospice as well as raising money for the Royal British Legion, through the sale of her glass poppy brooches. Recently Pam has started working with the National Trust, which has involved designing and selling a stained glass star that is unique to the Nostell Priory property. 

Pam says ‘ I love working with glass. The colours and effects created can be amazing. I have always had an interest in the stories told in old church windows. The sun shining through them creates a sense of spirituality’.

I love stories and these days I stride the streets of Sheffield on the lookout for new stories.  I was a Community Development Worker for 30 years and consequently, I’m sceptical about almost everything!

I’m a local marketing coach, using stories to open up business development in surprising ways.  I underline the distinction between real and paid work.  Many people are unhappy because they cannot find time for their real work – as we unravel the lockdown, we’re all challenged to step up and offer the world our own unique insights.  They won’t always work but how else do we find the ones that do?

I run Telling Stories: Making Business, storytelling for business owners, on second and fourth Thursdays (usually).  It’s an opportunity to hear a business owner’s story and to offer feedback.  We improve our own storytelling when we help others.  Find the TSMB programme here.  This page is regularly updated.  Click on links in right hand column to register for your Zoom link.

The book I mention is “The Music of Time: Poetry in the Twentieth Century” by John Burnside.
