Response from Cariad Glass:Thank you so much, lovely words! Really pleased you enjoyed your day with us, and hope to see you in 2019!
Had a great day, to be honest much more than I expected, the day went far too quickly.
Went away feeling confident to cut glass and solder, as well as making a very nice stained glass picture to take home and show off.
Class sizes are just right and with Justine and Chris being excellent teachers the whole process was well explained but not overly.
Plenty of breaks and coffee with biscuits, always good.
Would love to go back and do the Mosaic course soon.
Thank you for such a great day.

Response from Cariad Glass:Thank you Sherry, so pleased you had a good day - loved teaching you and hope you'll be back in 2019!
Amazing to go from knowing absolutely nothing about this craft to producing a fabulous keepsake within a day!
We had a fun relaxing day with excellent tuition by friendly and patient tutors.
The day is well worth the cost to receive the knowledge and skills necessary to create something of beauty.
I would happily go again

Response from Cariad Glass:So thrilled you enjoyed it, we had a FAB day with you and hope you'll be back in 2019! Thank you so much for such a fabulous review - cheers! Justine xx
The day went so quickly. From start to end it was so interesting. Informative, friendly and helpful.
Chris and Justine have such a passion for Cariad glass that they embrace you into their magic bubble. What I achieved by the end of the day was truly amazing. I will definitely be returning to do another class.

Response from Cariad Glass:Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Ann!
You are quite right, we are incredibly passionate about what we do and I'm so glad that our enthusiasm has inspired you to come back for more courses - thank you so much, we will see you again soon!
All the best, Justine
Really enjoyed it. Went from complete beginner, who had never cut glass before, all the way to producing a lovely bit of stained glass. The course is really well designed; they have obviously run it numerous times before, so there is a very suitable amount of input from tutors, sensible choice of patterns you can use (nothing unachievable, but plenty of variety), good equipment, nice introduction to the various techniques needed throughout the day, plenty of breaks, and it is well set up so that if one person needs a bit more help than somebody else it's easily done.

Response from Cariad Glass:Thank you so, so much Judith - really kind words that mean a great deal to us!
It's so important to us that students feel supported, encouraged and helped during each stage of the processes used, and go home with something to be proud of - it's why we keep class sizes small, and it's great to hear that this was important to you too!
Really hope we will see you again soon - thank you so much!
Really enjoyed this class and was very impressed by what we could achieve in a day. The tutors were very helpful & friendly and gave just the right amount of guidance & help. Would love to do another one at some point.

We do really enjoy teaching our courses, so it means such a lot when a pupil has a memorable time - thank you so much for sharing your review, and we hope to see you again soon!
What an excellent day.
Came away with an amazing finished project...much better than I thought I could do!
Looking forward to my return trip next year.
Excellent teachers, with many years of knowledge. Thank you both once again.

Just really enjoyed it! It was well thought out, a nice sized class and you went away with something you were proud of! I told my husband that I would pay money to buy the panel I made!!!
Would love to come back and do the mosaic course.
