Want to review this course?

My daughter and I spent a lovely day with Dorothy in her workshop. She was very knowledgeable and showed us various techniques we could try as well as the numerous different glasses we could use - from sheets, to confetti, to powdered.
By the end of the day we had made 2 coasters, a window hanging and a free standing wave piece and can’t wait to collect them once they have been fired!
Thank you Dorothy
