Brilliant day! Sarah is a first class teacher and we learned so much. She guided and advised us so that we were able to produce some very presentable pieces. Thank you.

Sarah was very welcoming, accessible and professional at the Glass fusion with Enamels and Powders workshop. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and came away feeling I had learned so much and accomplished something. She met us at the level we were at, then encouraged us throughout to be creative on our own yet giving us assistance whenever we asked for it. The group was small enough to easily chat with each other and share ideas. Great fun. May 2022

Response from Sarah Brown Glass:

Thank you Jenny! Lovely to have you. I really enjoy what I do and I'm glad I was able to share it with you.

I've already recommended this course to more friends today, because it was fantastic!

I went with three of my girl friends on Saturday to do a beginners glass fusing day with Sarah. Sarah showed us lots of different techniques in the morning and we had plenty of time to play and ask questions about the process. In the afternoon, we were able to use our new found skills to create four coasters or a larger piece to fit inside a frame.

I always enjoy learning from someone with a professional attitude and I wasn't disappointed. Sarah is a great teacher and a highly skilled glass artist. The class was interesting, inspiring, fun and all four of us learnt so much and are keen to go back to try another one of Sarah's courses.

I'd thoroughly recommend this course to anyone who's keen to learn glass fusing!

I did the glass breaking and painting class with Sarah, and it was absolutely brilliant! Sarah was so lovely and really took the time to teach us all the skills we needed and helped us if we were struggling. There was no limit on what materials we used, and Sarah was happy to answer all our questions, support us and give us examples of things to make! Will definitely be back to try another workshop!

Having seen Sarah's work at a craft fair in Tewkesbury, I expressed an interest in the glass fusing workshop to my wife and this turned into my birthday present that year.

Having no experience of working with glass I was a little apprehensive but Sarah made me feel welcome [I was also the only man in the group] and very soon we were all working together and practicing our newly discovered rudimentary glass working skills.

Sarah found time to spend with us all and by the end of the day [we overran by an hour but that didn't seem to matter], we had all produced excellent pieces of glass art work.

This workshop is a great introduction to using glass as an art medium and I would strongly recommend you taking the plunge and signing up.

What a lovely day. Made very welcome. Easy to follow instructions from a patient teacher, Sarah and I now have four wonderful coasters. Would I recommend the day? I certainly would...

Had a fantastic day with friends, created some lovely pieces with limited artistic talent! Sarah gave just the right level of support and guidance throughout the day and the cake was great too!

My glass fusing course was a well-hinted-at birthday present and it was a great day out. Only a small group of us which meant that the day was full of good hints and loads of opportunities for Sarah to help those of us who needed more support!!! She was patient, friendly and passionate about what she does.
I would recommend this to anyone. Enjoy !!

Excellent course for us because we wanted to learn more about the Glassline pens. Taught the basic skills like cutting glass which is always useful to become confident in it. Very educational and a great day.

Along with my husband & 14 yr old daughter we attended Sarah's beginners glass fusion workshop. With 6 in the class there was a great deal of 1:1 support, clear guidance on what to do & how, lots of creative input and Sarah was able to adapt to individuals requirements. We made a mixture of test pieces to learn different methods, coasters & a wall hanging & were all really pleased with our efforts.
Lovely brownies were a tasty reward at lunchtime! A really different way to spend a day.

A really lovely day with Sarah at her glassmaking course - I made a wall hanging as well as several practice pieces, all of which turned out amazingly well. I learnt lots of new techniques, and the whole day was just so interesting and fun. I will definitely be returning again for another course, especially at Christmas. Lovely brownies too! Thank you Sarah.

A wonderful day! I learnt so much, going to collect my finished pieces today.
Sarah was accommodating and so patient with all of us learning. Great value for money I made so many pieces and really felt I got a lot from the day. Will be going back for more classes with Sarah!

I was given the course as a birthday present and what a wonderful day! The time flew by and we didn't just get to make our main piece - we had lots of smaller practice pieces as well that get fired and we can keep. It was lovely to try out all the different techniques and Sarah was great. Thank you :)

Thanks Sarah. I enjoyed my day & enjoyed working with a friendly bunch of people. Nice that it was a small group. Lovely to have plenty of equipment & choices of what to use. Thanks for clear explanations of the basics & your friendly encouragement.
I have some hearing loss so missed some things you said but that is my fault as I have to get used to being clearer & explaining that I need to see you face to hear properly for lip-reading.
I would be interested in possibly doing another day but I would like to be a bit more prepared for what I wanted to do.
I would like to have seen some samples of your own work to understand your style.

I have just completed a glass fusing day course with Sarah and thoroughly enjoyed it. The day was well structured, there was enough information to get us up and running without being overwhelming. Sarah gave clear demonstrations of techniques and was on hand to help everyone throughout the day. I am hoping to book on to another course in the future.

Went to Sarah's Saturday workshop and really enjoyed it. Sarah is a great teacher and even when talking to another student saw when we needed help and was very patience with all of us. She managed to sense how proficient we each were, the class was relaxed and we all had time to make our masterpieces. The equipment was excellent and we had an abundance of paints and colours.

Thoroughly enjoyed the day, Sarah kept us busy and the time flew by.

I had such an amazing day when I attended Sarah's class. She made it both interesting and fun by teaching us some techniques. I even managed to cut a piece of glass straight without breaking it! I was really proud of my end result and although I love art I am not very creative. I will attend again,.

Bought vouchers for me and my friend for her 50th birthday. We had such a fantastic day. We both love crafts and it was great to do something new together, and Jo had something to keep for her birthday. As you get to keep all your practice pieces, I made a picture out of the Christmas tree piece that was on the wall over Christmas, bringing back great memories. Will definitely go to another class when I can as Sarah is a great teacher. Thank you

After completing a series of Sarah's courses it's given me the confidence to take on more complicated tasks. Sarah's never failing support and guidance enables me to do things I never dreamed I could. Cannot recommend the courses enough. Thank you Sarah.

I have just been on the one day beginners glass fusing course. What a fantastic way to spend the day - learning new skills, chatting and eating homemade cake, what could be better. It's amazing what can be achieved in just one day. Sarah is welcoming and friendly, and hugely talented, I would love to go back to learn more. Thank you Sarah!

Last evening I went to the 1st session in a 6 week Glass fusing course with Sarah and what a lovely experience.
Sarah is an excellant teacher, encouraging, caring and creative, putting us all at our ease from the start, giving me the confidence and the belief that I can and I will achieve each weeks tasks.
Looking forward to week 2 and of course Sarahs wonderful cookies! Thank you Sarah.

I went to Sarah's Saturday workshop and loved it! It was relaxed and comfortable, with lots of one to one attention. Sarah is friendly and encouraging and she clearly loves what she does. She encouraged us all to be creative and everyone in the group to make something individual. The lovely brownies were an added bonus!
