Excellent course, I learnt a lot of techniques to further my studies. Deborah is a great tutor patient and enthusiastic. She guides you through the glass sessions effortlessly. The ladies on the course were fabulous too. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and the learning. Thank you.

I recently did Deborah's 3 day workshop on glass fusing and it was a really worthwhile experience. I had dabbled a couple of times before with glass fusing and really wanted to be able to get my teeth into it. Deborah's course was just what I needed - it covered all the basics plus more in-depth information.

The group size was small, so we all had as much attention as we needed. The homemade lunches were lovely, too!

I can certainly recommend this course for anyone who thinks they might like to have a go at glass fusing, or for someone who's had a go at a half-day/one-day course and feels that a day is not long enough! I do feel I learnt a lot from Deborah and that the course was value for money.

Thoroughly enjoyed all three days, learnt a lot, made a lot of pieces, met lovely people and shared some delicious food. Can't recall being so satisfyingly absorbed in an activity. Deborah is an excellent teacher, generous with her knowledge, ideas and materials. Course is excellent value for money.

Had an amazing time, met new friends, learned so very much, ate wonderful food and brought away memories and many glass inspirations, the whole thing was well taught with an informality that made everyone comfortable with the work they produced.

I was looking for a course that would give me a good foundation to learn and develop my understanding of fused glass. The course was perfectly structured - a large variety of projects with all the guidance and materials we needed. I loved the fact that we were encouraged to use our own creativity rather than everyone producing something that looked the same. Deborah is extremely knowledgeable and an excellent tutor... she is obviously very passionate about her art. She made us very welcome and the lunches she provided were lovely (she's an excellent chef!). I would recommend Deborah's courses to anyone - I will definitely be back for the Intermediate Course in a few months.

Superb course, 3days of glass and great food, Deborah is very knowledgable with years of making glass art as it runs in the family.
We started making simple coasters (square pieces) just to get used to glass cutting, then moved on to one medium size glass art piece using glass frit, next we made 3 squares of glass concentrating on surface design and texture, the last day we made our final 3panel piece.
It was a great 3days and more than I expected, very pleased to now have glass art on my wall and to say I made that!
