Want to review this course?

An inspiring full day which introduced me to another aspect of working with glass which I fully intend to pursue. Kate brought lots of ideas to the session and gave full explanations as we went along, was flexible and showed awareness of everyone's problems on an individual basis, I would thoroughly recommend this workshop.
