About the Course
Under the direction of glass artist Wendy Bradberry, you will be taken through the thoroughly enjoyable process of creating your very own piece of fused glass art from start to ﬁnish. Even absolute beginners will have beautiful pieces that they have designed and crafted themselves.

I had a day's course with Wendy in September and it was excellent. I was so delighted with what I made due to Wendy's instruction that I have become completely absorbed with glass fusing and have been making more pieces at my sister's workshop in Hampshire. Wendy was patient, helpful and encouraging and from those first tentative steps, I feel confident that I will pursue this lovely art form.

We had a fabulous day with Wendy. We made a wall hanging each and Wendy showed us various techniques. There was an endless choice of colours and types of glass to use. Hopefully we'll go back and do this again. Would highly recommend.

Friendly atmosphere and good guidance explaining the art of glass fusion all put to good use with our own piece of art at the end of the course. The glass doesn’t go into a kiln on the day but was forwarded to me within a couple of weeks. If you’re interested in glass and what you can do with it this course is a definite must.

Such a great days course. Wendy is very experienced and patient. She gives each person her attention when needed. A very relaxing day covering all information for carrying out the craft. I had never done anything like this before and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Love the fish that I made. Definitely recommend. 😊

This was a very enjoyable day - I had no experience of glass fusing. Fantastic to progress from newbie to produce an amazing piece of fused glass in just a few hours. All thanks to Wendy's patience and expertise with a good supply of materials and equipment available.
Would definitely recommend anyone even if not artistically inclined!

It was a lovely day learning about glass and the methods which we could use to cut the glass and make our designs. Wendy was incredibly patient taking us feom basics. We were given opportunity to let our creative juices flow by either following designs already laid out in pictures or come up with something entirely unique.
The day went so fast but was thoroughly enjoyable. Very relaxing and supportive.

Fantastic day. Clear and patient instructions. Advice and guidance was informative and made me feel confident. Great instructor/practitioner. Lovely lunch and conversation. Warm and friendly.
A wide range of equipment and resources provided. I saw this advertised on Facebook and noticed a friend was interested too! Great excuse for a birthday experience day out!
I would do this again! Thank you for a relaxing, arty day.

I saw this course advertised on Facebook and decided to treat myself. What a good decision!
Lovely day, very calm, patient tuition. We were taken through the process step by step then given the opportunity to create a piece ourselves. We were guided and encouraged all through without intrusive overseeing. Surprised myself by making an attractive hanging. Would love to explore further.
Thanks for a wonderful day.

Had a really enjoyable creative day but it went far too quickly which is what happens when you're enjoying yourself. This course is good for absolute beginners and for those who want to try out new techniques. Wendy provided a lovely calm atmosephere and helped us when required but gave us the confidence to try everything ourselves. The materials provided gave us the chance to be creative in our designs.
Thank you Wendy for an enjoyable and productive day. Can't wait to see how my 'masterpeice' turns out.

I really enjoyed the day and I'm delighted with my glass panel which was delivered this week. I've never worked with glass before so wasn't sure if I would find the cutting difficult, but Wendy and John were really knowledgeable and helpful throughout and I really enjoyed learning the skill. Great day and would recommend!

A really enjoyable day learning new skills and finding our creative spark. Wendy was always there with constructive advice and support and created a relaxed and friendly environment. If you want a day out doing something different, go along and have a go. You'll be glad you did!
Cath and Geoff.

I'm not a gifted arty sort of a bloke, but thought I would give it a go. I found that it was made accessible as a skill. I was very encouraged in what I was doing by Wendy, and John was very helpful too. A very pleasant enjoyable day. I'll certainly be wanting to do it again.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Even though I am a novice, Wendy’s guidance and encouragement enabled me to make a beautiful piece of glass. I would certainly recommend her workshops.
Carolyn - - #12834
This was my first attempt at glass fusing. I must admit I am not particularly artistic but interested in trying a new skill.
Wendy helped us formulate a "do-able" piece of work, guided us through making a design, then choosing and cutting the glass and constructing it ready for the final fusing which Wendy does later on our behalf.
I am thrilled with my unique piece of work am certainly looking to do another course in 2018.
