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

- - #25663

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.

- - #25662

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.

- - #25661

I have been to the glass studio before. I enjoyed it so much I brought my Mum and 2 sisters back.

Wendy is very patient. She listens to what you want to achieve and offers you ideas of how to achieve this. A thoroughly enjoyable day - would highly recommend.

It was a complete surprise to attend the workshop (birthday treat). Glorious location and great facilities. Wendy is a great and very patient tutor who really supports your ideas and helping you create a personal piece.
I would really recommend the day course as you will learn so much and have a piece of work to remember it. Wonderful x

Great day! Wendy made us feel very welcome. Brilliant information on everything. You can really feel her passion and love for this beautiful art work. Today has given me the push I need and re-ignited my love for art. Thank you so much.

Really relaxing and enjoyable. Clear guidance but freedom to feel comfortable with my work. Just made me want to come back for more classes. Thank you Wendy, it's been a great day.

It's been a fantastic day, learnt so much and really enjoyed making my own piece. Lots of lovely colours to choose from and great advice all the way. Thank you!

- - #20544

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!

- - #20002

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!

- - #20001

Great day - everything I hoped it would be. Wendy was knowledgable, enthusiastic and encouraging. Definitely recommend the day. Many thanks.

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!

- - #19986

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.

- - #19822

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.

- - #19821

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our one day fused glass workshop with Wendy.
Wendy was kind and very patient with us!
Great choice of projects we could do, and fantastic range of glass colours.
Wendy was an excellent teacher, and importantly we were both really pleased with what we managed to produce!

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!

A really good day and productive! Wendy was very patient and helpful with lots of helpful suggestions.

- - #17387

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.
