Our Story

Having discovered a love for glass fusion as a way to decompress from a stressful day job, Suzanne O'Leary opened a small studio and workshop in a fisherman's arch on Brighton seafront in 2012, as a place to develop her new found passion and begin to sell her creations.

After moving to a larger space in the North Laine in 2014, Little Beach Boutique became a destination shop for carefully curated creations by other designer makers as well a new venue for Suzanne to expand her own collections of glass coasters, pictures, waves and panels, inspired by the Brighton skyline and the Sussex coast.

She also began to host regular fused glass workshops which became increasingly popular over time for beginners and improvers, as well as for small groups on hen parties and team building days. 
Nine years later, the retail side of Little Beach Boutique is transforming again into an online only platform with a continued focus on thoughtful, handmade products created by locally based small businesses.
Our increasingly popular glass workshops will be moving to a new venue so we can run even more and offer more variety. 

As we go through this period of adjustment, watch this space for new products and workshop dates available from Spring 2023 onwards.
