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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

In-person course
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.

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!

In-person course
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!

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.

In-person course
Allison - - #19821

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.

I enjoyed a great day with Wendy on this full day glass fusing workshop. The studio is lovely and bright, and there are so many different materials and beautiful glasses to use. Wendy is a brilliant teacher, we started from scratch as I was a complete beginner, but I quickly gained confidence and am so pleased with the final piece I produced. Would definitely recommend and look forward to returning soon. Thank you Wendy!

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.
