Really enjoyed the fused glass workshop. Karen explained the different types of fusing, demonstrated how to cut the glass with plenty of help and advice on making my own pieces. I made a coaster size hanging, little dish, sushi plate and even had time to make a pendant at the end of the class! Can’t wait to see my artwork when they’ve been fired!
I’d definitely recommend the class and I’m going back for more glass fusing soon!

I had a fantastic time on this course. Karen was friendly and informative and really helped me let my creative juices flow! We got great instruction, plenty of materials to pick from and beautiful ideas to get you started.
I love the pieces I created and had such fun doing it!

My daughter and I went on the fused glass course in July 2019 and thoroughly enjoyed it. I made 2 coasters and a larger square piece too. Karen gave excellent instruction on how to cut glass and other techniques when we first arrived and then we started making our unique works of art! Karen was very friendly and patient and gave advice when needed. There was a great afternoon tea for lunch and plenty of coffees and teas. I am now really looking forward to seeing what my work looks like once it has been fired and sent out to me.

Me and my boyfriend went for a day course in fused glass at the beginning of May.
Karen was friendly and welcoming from the moment we arrived. It was easy enough to find and Karen kept in contact before to make sure we knew where we were going. We’ve never done anything like this before, Karen was extremely knowledgable and taught us everything we needed to know for the day plus a bit more! It was great fun and a lot easier than I thought it would be. She gave you the flexibility and guidance to practice and then create your own mini masterpieces! We came away with 2 coasters each and a bigger peice, my boyfriend made a bowl and I made a clock (a bit more complicated but Karen helped me through it!) it’s a great fun day and a really good price, the lunch was lovely and we got to sit outside.
I’d definitely recommend it, we were complete novices but the other lady who joined us had done some before and Karen handled the different level of knowledge and expertise like a pro.
