As I was new to glass fusing, I struggled with glass cutting on first day, but soon picked it up on second.
At the end of the 2 day course, I had learnt, how to cut glass, different types of glass, and what they are used for, and how they are likely to come out when fired.
I really enjoyed it and was pleasantly surprised with my end result.
Great hosts, in a lovely countryside setting, offering tea, coffee and biscuits with lunch included in the fee.
Look forward to improving on my next course.
