Always wondered how those beautiful glass pieces are created that you see when down at the coast? Well come and have a go at a workshop that couldn't be further away from the sea if it tried!

Brilliant morning learning about glass fusion. I arrived a total novice with no idea of what was really involved. I managed to produce 4 coasters which Vicky is putting through the kiln and will deliver to my door.
Vicky makes it look so very easy and makes sure you are comfortable with the processes before letting you loose on your master piece.
Not rushed at any stage and allowed to progress at my own rate.
Would recommend this to all my friends
Response from Kingcot Gallery:Thank you for this, it is appreciated! I'll see you on my way back from the lake......
Thoroughly enjoyed our glass fusing morning with Vicky. She was very kind and patient with us two novices and nothing was too much trouble for her. The whole morning was relaxed and great fun and Vicky's obvious love and enjoyment of glass was infectious. She is a great teacher, not lecturing or boring, and we learnt loads about glass and glass fusing. We would highly recommend her workshops and we look forward to the next one :)
Response from Kingcot Gallery:Thank you for your lovely words, it is appreciated. It was a great morning and thank you for sharing your birthday with me!
This is a much more fun workshop than I thought! First of all, Vicky has been so flexible with the date so that I actually enjoyed a whole course for just myself. Secondly, the course was very informative and interesting. Vicky demonstrated the skills perfectly and allowed a lot of my own creative ideas. She helped a lot to make my ideas come true via this amazing handcraft skill. Lastly, Vicky was super nice to even wait for me at the entrance in case I drove past (which I did). I enjoyed her chat and company. I actually found all sorts of people are trying this and it can be a real fun thing to do with friends and family! Definitely recommended!
Response from Kingcot Gallery:Thank you so much, I always say every day is a school day and I learnt some amazing guinea pig facts from you which I shall be sharing with my friend!
Such a wonderful morning with Vicky learning how to make beautiful fused glass pieces. We were all beginners having never done this before and Vicky showed us how to do it and was by our side all morning advising and helping. We all loved it and were thrilled with what we made. Highly recommend! Thank you Vicky.
Response from Kingcot Gallery:Thank you for your kind words, it was an absolute pleasure to have your friendship group for the morning!
Vicky provides a great mix of knowledge and information, hands-on practice, guidance and a free rein to develop your own creativity. She is really generous with her materials- we made two pieces each which I can’t wait to see! We will definitely go again but next time, I will spend a bit of time looking at fused glass creations online so I go with an idea of what I’d like to create. It really helped to have ‘ready-made’ pieces to look at the finished colours and effects, and to get the creative juices flowing. Thanks Vicky for such a lovely morning!
Response from Kingcot Gallery:Always a pleasure to pass information on, in fact I guess it's probably too much sometimes....! It'll be good to see you again. All the best Vicky
A fabulous morning spent creating our masterpieces under Vicky's attentive tuition. She helped and advised but allowed us free reign with designs and materials. It was great to be inspired by all the small pieces she has in the workshop. We'll definitely be back for more Vicky!
Response from Kingcot Gallery:And it'll be good to see you back! So pleased you enjoyed the morning. All the best Vicky
I took hubby to a glass fusion craft afternoon with Vicky to celebrate his 60th birthday and he loved it. He wished we’d booked a day instead of half. Vicky is so knowledgeable and informative and we learnt loads of new techniques even though hubby knows how to craft with glass and I’d done another glass fusion class. We had such a great time, and looking forward to our creations coming out of the kiln gif us to collect. Thanks so much Vicky. We would definitely recommend and we will be booking to do the stained glass course soon 🙂
Response from Kingcot Gallery:Thank you so much for your kind words - always good to hear! Glad hubby enjoyed the day - and he definitely isn't 'cack-handed'!
A super workshop - easy going but with impressive results
Response from Kingcot Gallery:It was great to see you all enjoying yourselves and catching up - I hope the lunch was just as good!
Lovely afternoon with Vicky who was a great teacher and very generous with her materials allowing us to make some really impressive items. I’d never tried glass fusion before but managed to create some pieces that I’m quite proud of in just a couple of hours. Great afternoon and a great new medium to play with. Thanks Vicky - we loved it!
