What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. Excellent experience. Three hours of "colour therapy". Thank you Nadine!
Nadine was very knowledgeable, engaging, helpful with all of us. There were 6 students in my group, so we has polenty of one to one time, each person made 4 tiles. Really looking forward to picking them up this weekend (7 days to fire).
I am definitely going back to do another day, this te with my wife.
Response from Nadine Mahoney:Thanks for the lovely review Ian, looking forward to hosting you with your wife soon.
Nadine was a lovely, relaxed and helpful facilitator. It was good to be in a small group and we had time to make up to four items which was great. Really enjoyed it and would definitely book again.
The 5 of us had such a great time. Was so interesting to learn so much about glass, and the history of it. Don’t know where the time went! Nadine was so supportive and encouraging of our ideas. Am sure we will go back again. Highly recommend!!
Fantastic course. The instructor explained the process well and was available throughout the session to ask for assistance when needed. Made coasters (but was given the option to make a bowl). Really enjoyed the afternoon session and plan to organise more sessions. Thanks Nadine
Response from Nadine Mahoney:Thanks for the lovely review, really glad you enjoyed the session. I can’t wait to see how your designs look when out of the kiln.
I bought this as a gift for my mum, and we both had a wonderful time. Nadine guided us through the whole process and made it all so easy! And the bowls we made are amazing, can't quite believe novice’s like us could make something so fab - It was the perfect gift. I highly recommend it.
OMG, I had so much fun in the class and Nadine was lovely and very helpful. Also other people's works are so inspiring and fun. I am so happy to found out about this class I would highly recommend to anyone.
Response from Nadine Mahoney:Thank you, so glad you enjoyed it.
This was a fantastic workshop! Purchased two places as gift for my mum and we had a wonderful time creating together. I will be back.
Response from Nadine Mahoney:Thank you for taking the time to review the workshop. Glad you had a great time.
A really enjoyable workshop - highly recommended. Nadine explains how to work with glass clearly and has a relaxed, very friendly manner. While there are many examples that could be used as templates for your own work, Nadine encourages everyone to experiment and develop their own ideas for colour and design, and is always on hand to offer advice and help on how to realise these objectives, moving easily between all of the participants in the workshop individually. It was really interesting seeing how differently each person used the various kinds of glass available, and the very different designs that we all produced. I was very happy indeed with the coasters that I created that morning.
Response from Nadine Mahoney:Hi Liz,
