Had a thoroughly enjoyable time at this workshop. Having not been sure of my 'artistic' skills, I came away feeling very happy and confident with my piece. Patricia completely put me at ease. She is extremely knowledgeable and above all patient!! Would definitely recommend this course and hope to have another go myself.

I was a little sceptical of the glass workshop as I’m not naturally ‘arty’. However once Patricia showed me her catalogue of different styles I could make, I found it easy to find one I loved. I really enjoyed cutting and shaping the glass and chose lots with my favourite colour purple! We had a blast with Patricia and my finished glass looks amazing in my kitchen window!

- - #24227

We had such a laugh at our work's night, Patricia is such a fun teacher. I thoroughly enjoyed the glass class and can’t wait to do another one next year.

- - #24226

This was a work's outing so I wasn’t really looking forward to this event as I cannot do art. However once Patricia had shown me how easy it is to do, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to do. I’m delighted with my finished glass and show it off at every opportunity!

- - #24225

We had a fab night team building. The funniest part was when I accidentally cut my friend's piece of glass by accident but she preferred it that way! Fab time, would recommend to all!

- - #24224

I loved my time with Patricia and learnt a lot. In fact, I’ve booked again to bring my Mum and Sister and can’t wait to make another piece.

- - #24223

A group of ladies came from work and we had a blast! Defo recommend this to all - we loved our time with you Patricia!

- - #24222

I came with others from work and had a really nice time. I love the piece of glass art I made and it sits pride of place on my desk

- - #24221

We can here on a works day out and have a fabulous time! I’m usually no good at anything arty but, with Patricia’s help, I ended up with a wonderful piece of art I’m proud to show off.

I attended several of Pauline workshops. I found that all of them were delivered in a logical and professional manner. Pauline did give the small group (all her workshops were limited to 6 places) some historical and technical information prior to the commencement of the practical element of the courses. Pauline created a friendly environment and was always on hand to offer help and advice. I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and I came away feeling that I had gained valuable knowledge and the inspiration to commence some projects on my own and I highly recommend any of Pauline courses.

It was great fun doing this course with Patricia. She was very relaxed so that kept me calm. I am a complete beginner, but my glass looks very professional - all my friends are envious of my new skill!

- - #24167

I loved my glass fusion course with Patricia. She was able to guide me through the whole process even though I kept panicking I was doing it all wrong. She was unflappable and ensured I had a finished piece of work which is in pride of place in my kitchen window. Would definitely recommend her to beginners and experts alike!

- - #24166

Had a really great time doing glass fusing and created some things that I really love. Patricia is a fab teacher and was so friendly, plus the home made food was yummy! It was a pleasure, and I will be booking onto another course in the future.

- - #24159

I loved the glass fusing course. Was a complete beginner but amazed at what I made.
Friendly and supportive.
Loved the food provided.
Couldn’t recommend enough.
Will definitely do more courses.

I really love these courses with Patricia, I've been on a few now and every time I learn something new. I've been able to make some really beautiful items either for myself or as unique gifts for friends or family. The atmosphere is relaxed, friendly and also it's a fun day and at the end of it I can never quite believe I've been able to achieve something so good. The groups are a good size which means when I've had questions I've felt at ease to be able to ask them and there's a real sense of respect for each other as we learn. Patricia is an excellent teacher, she's very thoughtful, encouraging and I believe she really wants you to get the best out of your learning experience and day. Some tutors rush the group or gee everyone along at the same pace but people's abilities are all different and creatively we all discover things at our pace, I love her classes because she relates to how creatively different we can all be and celebrates that fact. Can't wait for the next one!

- - #24142

What a brilliant course, Patricia is friendly and welcoming and more than willing to pass on her knowledge and give practical help to her students. The day was packed with practical demonstrations and hands on tutoring and several pieces using the differing techniques were created by all attendees. Tea, coffee and a delicious lunch were included on the day and I absolutely loved the whole experience which gave me the opportunity to gain experience in a new craft.
I will definitely be back to learn more.

- - #24141

Patricia taught a group of 6 of us beginners quickly and calmly. Encouraging us to create beautiful individual art pieces. I was stunned at everyone’s work - including mine which is hanging in prime position in my lounge. It was a great day, we were taught key glass techniques whilst having a lot of fun - and delicious home cooked soups / cakes for lunch too. Definitely booking another day soon.

- - #24139

Fabulous! I arrived not really knowing what glass fusing was...and left with a bowl that I love and makes me look far more talented than I am! Patricia creates a lovely atmosphere - whether your skill is design or, like me, you just enjoy 'doing' and being tucked away in a workshop for a change of pace...this course is spot on.

- - #24137

My wife bought my friend & I a one-day stained glass course & we both had an excellent time!

Patricia is really helpful & friendly, & provided us with excellent tuition & some top notch grub!

The course was well designed, taking us through all the basic techniques in her very well equipped workshop. Everyone went home with a finished stained glass panel, & I would heartily recommend Patricia & her courses to everyone!

Really enjoyed the course, very relaxed, friendly and informal. Beautiful food at lunch time.
I came away with enough knowledge to do it all again on my own.
Great course, thank you Patricia

My son was completing his BTEC art and design course at college but was frustrated by the lack of practical experience offered and this was affecting his confidence in his choice of future career so I booked us both places on one of Patricia's glass fusing sessions. I can honestly say it was the best decision I could have made. Patricia was so lovely and allowed my son to experiment with different techniques. By the end of the day he had regained his confidence and his passion for art ... And I had a great time too!

- - #20489

Had a great day, small number of participants which made for a great course. The atmosphere was so friendly with plenty of jokes. My family brought this as my 60th birtday present as i wanted to extend my skills never having worked with glass. I am a technology teacher and this is another skill/experience. The food was great with plenty of brews to keep us going. Patricia is a great knowledgeable teacher who interacts so well with us all.

- - #20461

We've been on a few of Patricia's courses and we’re looking forward to the next one in eight days time. Patricia has a lovely laid back, calm teaching style and we really enjoy our days in her studio. There’s always a good mix of people with varying skill levels but the guidance given to everyone is the same - positive, helpful and inspirational. The artwork we've produced is great, much admired, and we can’t wait to make more! For foodies, the home made soup and cakes are delicious in winter and the summertime sandwiches and tea in the garden is a relaxing interlude before the next session of creativity. For dog lovers, there's the delightful Scooby who loves a cuddle. The whole experience is brilliant and very highly recommended.

Response from Patricia Lee - All That Glass - Glass Art and Mosaic:

Thank you so much for your lovely review Paul. There's always quite a mix of people on the workshops but everyone just gets on so well together. It doesn't feel like work for me 😊 It's always a pleasure to see you and Joan and lovely to meet your daughter as well this time. Sneaky though, not telling me it was your birthday until you were leaving. Patricia x

I bought a voucher for my sister for her birthday for the glass fusing course and we went together. What a brilliant day, lovely people to chat to, Patricia’s guidance and expertise, a beautiful home made lunch (thanks for catering for GF too!). We learned how to cut glass and make our designs. There were lots of great ideas to chose from or you could take your own. My sister said it was one of the best Birthdays she has had. Thanks Patricia x

Response from Patricia Lee - All That Glass - Glass Art and Mosaic:

Aaw thank you Jude. I'm glad Rachel enjoyed her birthday treat. No problem at all to cater for dietary requirements - in fact we've decided that the gluten free chocolate brownies are better than non GF! Patricia x

I’ve always wanted to have a go at glass fusing and absolutely loved this course with Patricia. She has so much experience and is a great tutor. I made some great pieces and have them displayed at home with pride. 5 ⭐️. Highly recommended.

Response from Patricia Lee - All That Glass - Glass Art and Mosaic:

Thank you Shan. I'm really glad you enjoyed the day. Look forward to seeing you on another workshop. Patricia x

I’ve been on several day courses as well as a few Christmas Decoration courses and thoroughly enjoyed them all. Will be looking out for this years courses.

Response from Patricia Lee - All That Glass - Glass Art and Mosaic:

Hi Thelma. It's always a pleasure to see you on the workshops - especially when you bring homemade doggy cake for Scooby. See you next time. Patricia x

I have done two courses with Patricia and have enjoyed both immensely. The Christmas workshop was great fun and I learned a lot on the one day beginners course. It was great to take home a piece of work that I was really proud of.

Response from Patricia Lee - All That Glass - Glass Art and Mosaic:

Thank you Karen. It's always lovely to see you on the workshops. Patricia x

I completed a Christmas gift morning. I learned so much in a short space of time. The group I was with hardly spoke as we were so engrossed in what we were doing. This is a really good fun course to do and Patricia is an excellent teacher

- - #12364

I enjoyed my first glass fusion course (Nov 16) that much that I signed up for another one in January 17 with a friend. On arrival you are welcomed in with a hot drink of your choice. In the morning you make a clear piece of art work / ornament using 'float' glass. In the afternoon you move on to 'spectrum' glass where colours used. Patricia offers just the right amount of guidance / tuition whilst at the same time you can enjoy doing a bit of what you fancy. The two homemade soups (most guests try both!) and bread is delicious. Hard to find room for the equally delicious cakes on offer. I'm delighted with my glass pieces and look forward to another session towards the end of this year. I can highly recommend.

- - #7692

My best friend bought me this amazing gift. It's the best present I've ever had! I've never done anything like this before but Patricia is so talented at both explaining and producing great work that I felt confident to just get stuck in. I can't wait to see what my fish and my house turn out like after firing. Fiona and I were already planning our next course on our way home!
Many thanks to Patricia and her family for a fantastic day including an absolutely delicious lunch. Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Spent today on Patricia's short glass fusing course which was brilliant. I'm not very artistic but it appears you don't need to be. Created a wall hanging and plaque to mount and frame which I am pleased as punch with. Met some lovely people and the tea and cakes were pretty good too.

- - #5304

Had a fantastic day on the Stained glass course. I made a
panel. Learnt loads and got a great meal. What's made me book
the next course on fusing is the great informal learning experience you get at Patricia's. I've made my cutting board already and have started buying the tools. What more can I say.

My partner bought me a gift voucher as a birthday present for glass fusing. It was a great prezzie because I had just bought a kiln.
Patricia is a very likable, friendly & patient tutor. The facilities are excellent, plenty of equipment and a varied choice of materials for everyone's needs.
The home cooked food just added that extra special touch to a very pleasant and thoughly enjoyable day. I'm really pleased with my fused glass plate. I would highly recommended Patricia and her course. Excellent teacher - talented artist.

- - #3088

A brilliant experience I would recommend this course to anyone. Creative , imaginative a joy to experience.

- - #3086

Had a great day, I am really thrilled with the result of my glass fused plaque. The facilities were great- intimate but well equipped and we had a lovely lunch provided by Patricia and her family. I will definitely do another course with her she was a wonderful patient and inspirational teacher

- - #3085

I went along with some friends and really enjoyed the day. I had no experience whatsoever but that didn't matter as Patricia was on hand all the time to guide us through. We had full use of all of her equipment - and the lunch was excellent.
We are now saving up for the mosaic course!

- - #2063

Very informative with excellent demonstration and teaching of fusing skills.
All equipment was provided in excellent surroundings. A very enjoyable day no matter what previous experience level. Hope to enrol for other courses with this Artist.

- - #1220

A great and informative day. Lovely home cooked food too. Came back with all the information and skills I need to get started fusing glass along with a selection of pie5ces that I made on the day. Highly recommended.

- - #1219

I've been lucky enough to have been on two of Patricia's craft courses - one fused glass and a mosaic one too.
I thoroughly enjoyed both courses - she's an excellent tutor! She creates a relaxed environment and explains everything really clearly giving expert advice and a helping hand when needed!!
I was delighted with the artwork I created on both days and have to say I have become somewhat addicted and that is very much down to Patricia's enthusiasm for her work which she passes onto her students!!

- - #1188

Really enjoyed the glass fusion workshop and was very pleased with the plate I made, which now has pride of place in my dining room. I've also attended Patricia's mosaic and stained glass workshops which were brilliant. Having all the materials provided and a good teacher to boot was well worth it. Oh, and the lunch's were very tasty as well!

- - #1171

Fantastic course, ended up making a lovely dish to stand a candle on and two matching tea light holders. The course was informative with all materials and a lovely lunch provided. I attended with my cousin and we were so impressed that we are going to complete Patricia's mosaic course in June.

- - #1170

We loved the mosaic course with Patricia. It was inspirational and very enjoyable!
