I had a wonderful and insightful class with Nadine who was welcoming and well prepared. We sat in the beautiful garden with plenty of space between participants, overlooking the gorgeous canal. Nadine’s knowledge and interest in fused glass was infectious, I personally felt like I learned about both the history and the material before even getting to the creative part. Nadine’s guidance when coming up with compositions, mixing materials and also the technique was expert to say the least - I had a really lovely day and have come away with a new skill and inspiration to do more. Thanks Nadine!
I had the best time doing this course. Nadine is a great teacher, a good balance of hands on and hands off support, which gives you space to experiment if you wish to whilst you are learning. I enjoyed the fact the stages were clear, from drawing designs, to cutting glass effectively, before being let loose with all the wonderful colours, textures and your imagination, to create (in my case) some coasters which I was totally thrilled with. Highly recommended on every level.
Loved this, great to try a completely different skill. Relaxed environment and an interesting and creative activity.
I have never had any craft abilities or any previous experience with glass, but Nadine instantly made me feel comfortable. Her creative passion and ability to break down the instructions into simple steps gave me confidence to experiment. The relaxed environment she creates means you feel able to explore the materials and she has lots of examples to copy in case you do not have your own ideas. I thoroughly enjoyed this class and was amazed and pleased by the quality of the glass work I produced with Nadine’s supportive guidance. Couldn’t recommend this course enough!
Such an enjoyable morning! Nadine helped us learn new skills but focused on colour and creativity so we learnt new crafts but also enjoyed the glory of glass! Thank you so much.
Great knowledge of pigment and colours, and enthusiastic teacher!
Such an interesting class. Nadine is a fun and kind natured teacher sharing her knowledge of such unique skills. A great idea to do something with a friend or to escape reality for a moment. Highly recommended for anyone, not necessarily just artistic types. Amazing value for money too!
Loved the class and can’t wait to come back for the lantern with glass.
I really loved this workshop. Nadine is such a supportive, friendly and knowledgeable teacher. I'd never worked with glass before and I was so pleased with the results. Would highly reccomend for crafters and non crafters alike!
Quite outstanding, would recommend to anyone, Nadine is knowledgable and extremely helpful. The course was fun and the glassware is beautiful, would be great to repeat.
This class was absolutely fantastic - I would recommend it 100%
It was such good fun and Nadine was a fantastic teacher who put all of us at ease and was very supportive and encouraging.
I really loved my time there and what I made. I use my coasters everyday.
Thank you Nadine!
My friend and I had a fantastic time at Nadine's fused glass workshop! We were total beginners to working with any kind of glass but she broke down each step in a very simple and fun way, and encouraged silly ideas and questions while still guiding you towards a wonderful finished product (that we get to keep!) She really knows her craft and is wonderful at keeping a relaxed and engaged vibe among all her students. Thanks Nadine!
I was purchased this class for a birthday present and it was fantastic. Nadine was very friendly and chatty and gave us all a brief of how to design and cut glass. I walked away with 4 very impressive looking coasters which I have proudly displayed and are being used as coasters in my home.
I never thought I could achieve anything half as good but with Nadine’s guidance and the inspiring surroundings of the studio we were in, for someone never having touched this craft before, I came out with something far better than ever imagined. I highly recommend her class. Not the cheapest activity but it is absolutely worth every penny.
I had a really enjoyable Sunday morning learning how to cut and make my very own tile designs! A completely new craft which I’d never done before and get the satisfaction of creating something completely original. I would thoroughly recommend, great for hen parties, birthday gift or just to try something new. Thanks Nadine!
What a fun and relaxing way to spend the afternoon! I'm a crafting newbie but Nadine guided us through the whole process explaining everything fully and then we were off! Nadine was on hand to help with both the design aspect if we were stuck and help practically with those wanting to execute trickier designs. I can't wait to see the final results! These could make great presents, but you might not want to give them away after all...
Really informative and fun glass - Nadine is really friendly and puts you at ease straight away - the final coasters are so beautiful, and it was lots of fun to make, the 3 hours whizzed by!
Nadine’s studio is really cool, and she provides tea and biscuits - great value for money.
Hope to come back with my mum! Perfect as gifts.
