I enjoyed my first class last week. Julie (and her gallant husband), began with a very warm welcome to their home and stunning studio. Such a beautiful setting just added to the relaxed friendly atmosphere she created. Very knowledgable and informative, I was able to produce a quite satisfactory piece of work. I returned home thoroughly inspired and eager to...

Just back from a lovely day spent with Amanda. A very patient and methodical teacher. I leant lots of new skills and felt confident very quickly with Amanda's encouragement (plus copious amounts of tea were supplied!). Successfully made a beautiful glass robin. Excellent day!

I have just done courses 1 and 2 back to back and thoroughly enjoyed them both. As a complete beginner, I felt somewhat daunted on the first morning by the sight of the unshaped pieces of wood piled on my work bench that I was somehow to transform into a long stool. However, by lunchtime, under the expert guidance of...

I returned to Lucy’s at the end of May. I had worked at home on a leaf made in silver. This is to embellish the pod shape, already developed. After shaping the leaf so it looked as if it was growing from and around the pod, I preparing it for etching. Lucy kindly gave me stop-out varnish and whiting powder...

I visited Lucy towards the end of April to continue with my 3D project. The two parts of a hollow shape were soldered together. Lucy suggested we could try using hot pitch to fill the item, letting it cool and so allowing us to safely refine the shape by hammering. I liked that we could experiment and keep the design...

The course was fantastic. I was given the chance to stay for the weekend as a birthday treat where I (with a lot of help) made a small knife and a fairly large axe head. It was the first time I've been to a forge and being there gave me a great introduction into what kind of environment it is....

The teaching is good, I didn't know about the Cow! How that works. There's a lot to get in in one day, so I felt stretched to work hard, but you get your money's worth. I love my results. A bit lumpy around the stitching, I don't know if that's me or the leather! The shoes are a bit on...

I had an amazing memorable day Ricky is a fantastic teacher and really cares that the blown glass is as good as it can be. The classes are small so that us students have Ricky's almost full attention the whole time. Ricky's workshop is set in a beautiful garden, perfect to stop for a lunch break in between making your...

Enjoyed this course so much! Cath, the tutor, was amazing, patient, generous and knowledgeable. There was plenty of room (and a wood fire, which was greatly appreciated as it poured with rain for two of the three days). We were made very welcome, with lovely and interesting food in abundance, and interesting people from many different backgrounds. The course was...

I've been to 3 classes now, all creating different glass pieces. Ali is informative and enthusiastic about her subject and keen to teach others. She shows how to cut the glass - or if you struggle as I do, she'll come and do it for you, then offers advice about different types of glass and how they fire. The atmosphere...
