Davia was born in Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire on the North-East coast of England (near to the fishing port of Grimsby) and her maiden name, Davia Davidson exposes her paternal Norse heritage. She followed her artistic passion and it led to her being the first in her family to attend university, studying Ba(Hons) 3D Design at Hornsey College of Art.
We welcomed a glass student to our team for a short term internship at Daedalian Glass Studios in the past week. Marged is a student of 3D Design at the School of Art, Manchester Metropolitan University.
Two years ago, Davia Walmsley had the honour of being elected as the President of British Glass. This was especially significant as Davia became the first female President in over 100 years of the glass confederation’s history.
