Wow! Wendy was absolutely amazing and so was the day! She is gifted, thoughtful, personable and inspiring. I bought the day course for my daughter who is at University Arts London and she absolutely loved it!

Caroline Robertson - - #39770

I had a lovely morning with Wendy and two other lovely Ladies. Had a great time and look forward to seeing my finished work when it’s been in the kiln.
Hopefully before the summers finished I will be doing a full day's workshop.
Though the venue is not the easiest place to find, it is well worth it when you arrive: wonderful views and peaceful location.
Thank you Wendy for your inspiration, help, knowledge and hospitality.
See you again before too long.

Helen - - #39771

Had a lovely, inspiring morning making a candle curve with Wendy, would thoroughly recommend. A beautiful, tranquil setting (though make sure you read the instructions carefully as to how to find it, allow yourself plenty of time to get there & don’t rely on your Sat nav!). Wendy is keen to make sure everyone has a great experience & we finished the morning feeling really inspired & pleased with our creations.

Linda - - #38996

Had a lovely day yesterday at Wendy's Fused Glass day course. What a fabulous studio and setting, overlooking the Tamar river, wow! Even though I've done a Stained Glass course i.e cutting glass, I have learnt so much more from Wendy, and now feel confident in using different tools. She gave us loads of advice and help. Thanks Wendy for our really great day and I'm really looking forward to seeing my finished project/picture once it's been fired. (p.s love your sheep)

Response from Glory of Glass:

Thanks Linda - my pleasure; I enjoyed having you both at the Studio yesterday.

JVP-W. - - #36990

Last Saturday I attended a whole day Glass Fusion Workshop lead by Wendy Bradberry at Glory of Glass. What a fabulous day!
First the setting: a cosy, light studio overlooking the beautiful River Tamar.
We were a small group of novices and we soon settled and gelled over cups of tea and coffee and enjoyed a morning of learning how to cut glass. Wendy competently instructed us in various techniques, showed us samples of previous work and then led us in creating our pieces of glass. We wait to receive our glasswork after it’s been through the kiln.
It was a totally enjoyable day in good company. I’d highly recommend the workshop.

Bev Jones - - #36973

Wendy is highly qualified, some of her work displayed in the workshop (a beautiful converted old barn) is stunning. Only after completing the course can you appreciate the skill Wendy has.
She is a great teacher, quickly puts you at ease and teaches so many aspects of glass fusion. It is obvious that Wendy wants you to, not only enjoy your course, but also the whole experience.
The converted barn is in the most beautiful secluded spot overlooking a lake, so serene and just adding to the whole experience.
This was bought as a gift for me and it's the gift that just keeps giving, as the wall hanging I made, I will give to my daughter as a huge thank you for having had a wonderful day.
Thank you Wendy for making the course so special. I will be back in the summer.

Nicola Collins - - #36254

Wendy was a great teacher and taught me all the skills I needed to produce a lovely piece of fused glass work. I had a thoroughly enjoyable time and look forward very much to doing another one very soon!

Phillipa - - #35982

I would highly recommend a glass making day with Wendy. The workshop is beautiful, light and airy with all the equipment you need fully provided. The tutelage is clear and easy to understand, with plenty of opportunity to have a go before committing to your final masterpiece! The warm friendly environment was lovely, with the whole experience being so relaxing and rewarding. I will definitely be back again. Thank you so much.

Rie K - - #34428

What an absolute joy the course was. My daughter and I have been to Wendy's a few times now and always come away happy. Our pieces are on display in our homes and looking at them is a reminder of enjoyable times. Wendy is so patient and provides ideas when 'brain freeze' occurs; we absolutely recommend spending time with Wendy at her lovely studio. Jane W and Sarah W

Rosemary - - #33687

Relaxed but productive time. Good tuition and lots to play with. Will certainly be doing another course. Really pleased with my lantern!

Debra - - #33609

Thoughly enjoyed doing lantern, never done anything like this before. Very relaxing felt totally at ease lovely people, beautiful setting very well planned out very covid friendly face shields nice small class loads of ventilation. Looking forward to another class well done Wendy your a fantastic teacher.

Chris Wright - - #33608

A very relaxed but well led time with Wendy. She helps you to feel that “you can do this”. The time felt well organised and there was plenty of time to finish your project. Wendy was very helpful, making suggestions and showing how to achieve your goal. A thoroughly enjoyable time. Thank you Wendy.

Linda Hosken - - #33561

OMG, I did not know what to expect, and was a bit apprehensive, as I have never worked in this medium.
I should not have worried, Wendy talked me through the safety procedures, and then demonstrated how to cut straight edges, and then onto onto curves, I also had a 'go' at grinding edges of glass. Looking through her extensive collections of photos, gave me the idea for my piece of wall handing, drawing it first, and then onto cutting the many colours of glass that i chose to use. Wendy was attentive, but let me work at my own pace. I was absolutely thrilled with the piece I carefully placed in the kiln, I cannot wait for the finished piece to arrive. Thank you Wendy for such an enjoyable day, I feel i learnt a lot in a relaxing, and beautiful studio with a first class tutor.

Sarah mccleary - - #33439

What a Beautiful spot to spend the day crafting. Wendy our host was absolutely lovely and was exceptional in her tutoring of fused glass making. We were made very welcome and a cup of tea always available. We made a lovely piece of fused glass to be treasured.
I would recommend Wendy and her classes to anyone and will certainly be returning at a later date.

Heather Williams - - #33296

I have now completed two sessions with Wendy. She is a fantastic, patient teacher for any level of expertise. Her lovely workshop is very organised and it is easy to find anything you may need. She also has lots of pictures of work from previous students for inspiration. She is very enthusiastic about her students work. Everything was very safe in the current times with plenty of precautions due to covid. I'll be back.

Cheryl B - - #33220

A really lovely, creative and productive day. As a TOTAL novice I was apprehensive at first but Wendy is an excellent teacher and I was able to produce an interesting piece of work (hopefully!). Wendy is a very welcoming and encouraging tutor and her studio is a fantastic workspace; spacious, clean and very organised. She adhered to all the Covid Protocols and it was lovely to be able to have such an experience and learn a new skill after such strange times. Thank you Wendy :)

Georgina Shiers - - #33130

An amazing day building memories with my Grandaughter. Wendy very welcoming the studio bright and airy in a beautiful part of Devon. Wendy very attentive and patient...Ellie and I were delighted we were able to demonstrate the skills we learnt and we are excited to see the final finished product. Thank you Wendy for for a great day...

Susie - - #33083

Had a most enjoyable day with Wendy learning how to fuse glass. As a complete novice Wendy clearly explained all the necessary techniques and we had plenty of time to practice before we designed our own pieces. Lots of beautiful colours to choose from. Can't wait to see my finished item once it has been fired.

Liz Heaton - - #33021

My daughter and I really enjoyed our day at Wendy’s lovely workshop. Although complete novices when we started, under Wendy’s patient guidance and tutoring, we were delighted at what we were able to achieve by the end of the day. I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone who has never worked with glass before. We look forward to seeing our finished pieces.

Dorothy Geddes - - #32929

The glass workshop was bought as a Christmas present for me which got delayed because of various lockdowns. However when I attended at the end of April I thoroughly enjoyed it. Wendy was very patient showing me how to score and cut the glass and showed me what could be created with all the various glass etc.
When I came away I decided there and then that I would love to attend another class which has been booked. Wendy was so welcoming and explained the technique so well which made the overall experience a very enjoyable one. I would definitely recommend these classes. Excellent!

Response from Glory of Glass:

Thank you for your review - looking forward to seeing you again in July.

Suzanne - - #32956

Had a lovely day at the Glory of Glass workshop. Beautiful setting, lovely room. Wendy was a very patient and kind teacher and I am looking forward to receiving the finished piece soon, as Wendy has fired it and posted out. I would recommend (and have) the glass workshop to everyone. I will definitely be returning in the future.

Response from Glory of Glass:

Thanks Suzanne - it was a pleasure to have you. Look forward to seeing you again.

Debbie - - #32865

What a fantastic experience we had today! Wendy's lovely workshop is bright and airy and set in a beautiful location which can't help but inspire you. There is an amazing variety of coloured glass to choose from and Wendy explains and demonstrates each technique carefully. We had such fun and can't wait to come back for another day of creativity!

Wendy - - #32862

Had a fab day doing this course. Wendy was so helpful and patient and helped all she could to enable us to achieve the item we had chosen to design.
Nice rural setting and great choice of glass options to work with.

Nicola - - #30891

Really enjoyed the day. I had read some basics before attending but had not tried fusing before. Wendy was very informative and helpful; she provided lots of hints and tips and wasn't worried about sharing her experiences or useful ideas. Thoroughly recommend.

Heather - - #30674

Just enjoyed a lovely day with Wendy, my first time working with glass. Pre-course organisation was good, and attention to being Covid-safe was excellent. Wendy was a clear and patient tutor helping me to refine and realise my initial idea... I'm very much looking forward to seeing the final version once it's been fired.

Linda James - - #29531

A most comprehensive day of tuition, help and encouragement.
Relaxed, genuine enthusiasm and interest enabled a positive experience.
A lovely day. Even if you think you know how to do some aspects and are aware of things - skills take time, allow even more - especially if like me you talk a lot.
Most enjoyable, thank you.

Gill Blight - - #29582

I brought my Granddaughter as a treat for her birthday. What a fabulous bonding day for the both of us. Wendy explained everything very clearly from beginning to end and had immense patience. Learning to cut glass I found quite frightening to start with, however Wendy inspires confidence and we soon thoroughly enjoyed cutting different size pieces.
Creating our own wall hanging was immense fun. A thoroughly enjoyable day.

Sarah Cowan - - #29243

2nd visit to Wendy and most fabulous day again! Thought I would do something different and Wendy (as always) is happy to see that come to life.
Will be back for 3/4/5 visits ☺

Rob Holmes - - #29240

Thank you Wendy. It’s been a really fun day and I loved making my lighthouse! You gave excellent tuition and made wonderful tea! I now have so much respect for crafts people who work with glass! Curves are not easy!!
This has also been really good mindfulness practice, with the rest of my life all put into the background for a few hours.
Thanks again. All the best Rob.

Rebecca Summers - - #29241

We really loved this workshop! It is our second time here and we shall come again.

I thoroughly enjoyed my day - Wendy explained the processes and gave good tips, and I was delighted with the finished product. I can thoroughly recommend the experience - thank you.

Kirstan Powell - - #25662

I found the day very informative. Wendy patiently explained how to cut the glass, enabling us to have hands on experience of the whole process rather than be given cut shapes and then we had a great day cutting, shaping and grinding the glass before assembling our creations.
I can't wait to see my birds when they come out of the kiln - thank you so much.

Sophie Langton - - #25663

Excellent day and very informative. I loved being able to create something so beautiful and freely. A lovely relaxing way to spend the day. Wendy was very welcoming and so helpful. Thank you for sharing your skill with us xx

Ann Fisher - - #20001

Firstly, thank you for your time and patience with us! I had a great day learning a new skill and thoroughly enjoyed it. Fingers crossed our artwork comes out of the kiln as good as it went in! After a blank mind at the start of the designing process, Wendy helped with some design ideas enabling my design to look much better!
I really recommend this full-day workshop, a chance for some real 'me' time away from the kids! Thank you!

Francesca - - #20002

Wow, what a lovely day! Everything was taught step-by-step so it was easy to pick up. There were loads of skills to learn, but we were supported through all the processes. I was amazed by my final piece of work - I was very proud of it. There was scope to make pretty much anything you wanted, so all our group had completely different designs which was lovely.
Wendy was a wonderful teacher - I had a brilliant day!

Caroline Lewis - - #19986

What a fabulous host, Wendy, so calm, patient and helpful. I can't believe how good our artwork has turned out for beginners. I can't wait to come back!

A fantastic day. Wendy was very happy to share her experience and knowledge to help give me confidence that I could design a piece. Very practical, but with a good eye on my health and safety - I had to be reminded a couple of times.

Helen - - #19822

What a wonderful insight into the world of fused glass. Wendy, you made me feel welcome from the moment I arrived and gave me the confidence to create something I was proud of when it went into the kiln, so thank you. I would definitely recommend this to friends and will be back again to create some more stunning artwork.

Julia Oliver - - #19529

Lucie Winton Stubbs - - #16778

Absolutely brilliant day and I am 1,000% hooked!! Wendy is a great teacher, with a huge amount of knowledge about glass and it's flexibility, flow and limits, but encourages you to push your boundaries as an Artist, which is amazing and hard to find on some courses. She allows you time/freedom to experiment but is always there to help and assist when needed.

I highly recommend this course!! Fantastic studio setting also ... love working to the sound of chickens ... makes me feel at home.
