A fabulous day with a skilled and welcoming instructor. The studio is lovely and plenty of creative space. Brian shares his knowledge and opens a wealth of possibilities beyond the project, which was fun, comprehensive, and satisfying but also absolutely suitable for all levels of experience.
Very enjoyable and educational day spent with Brian. Brian is generous with his wealth knowledge in all areas of glass and it was inspiring working in his lovely studio. It was great to learn a new technique and thoroughly please with my boat. Can't wait for my finish boat to arrive after firing.
Brian is one in a million. Patient, creative, giving you space to experiment but knowing you have an expert tutor on hand. I learnt so much and have so many creative ideas rushing around my head, I will just have to go back to do more glasswork. Brian is thoughtful and helps you push your thinking on and allows you to try different things; all in a day! Wonderful!
I thoroughly recommend taking a course at North Wales creative glass studios. Brian is a very knowledgeable, generous and kind teacher. The course I took has really taken my glass making to a new level, particularly my mould making. I'd recommend either someone who works in glass or complete beginner's to take a course here, you'll learn loads and have a lot of fun.
I would highly recommend a course here with Brian.
Great day, learnt so much will be booking again shortly.
It's great to be taught by someone so talented and passionate in what they do.
I really wanted to learn scraffito... I am also a lino cutter and doodler... and this fitted the bill exactly... everything was explained clearly and I even learnt how to make the little boat to stand the sail in... so I felt that I had learned a great deal... not only did I come away with a beautiful little boat... I also now have lots of new knowledge that I can apply to other bits of my glass making. Thank you Brian. I thoroughly recommend the course.
