I had a great day with Kate doing the Christmas Decorations Workshop. I learned a lot during the day, and Kate was always on hand to help. The finished pieces look great on my tree! I'll definitely be signing up for another workshop next year and would recommend this to anyone who's wanting to try stained glass.

What a fantastic day! Right from the beginning, we were made welcome by Kate, who gave us a safety brief and answered any questions we had. I was a complete novice to glass crafting but
Kate was an excellent teacher who gave us step-by-step instructions to ensure we were successful! We learned so many new skills and created some amazing Xmas baubles! I would highly recommend this course and will probably be back myself next year! Thankyou Kate! X
